Feds Can Use State Secrets Privilege to Block Rendition Lawsuits Says ... Ninth Circuit (6-5)

"The Ninth Circuit is, of course, the most famously liberal appellate court in the country, and the policy in question is no mere Bush-era artifact. Team Barry announced more than a year ago that rendition of detainees to less, er, polite countries for interrogation would continue, albeit allegedly with more “oversight.” So in essence, if you were a liberal voter circa 2008, you should have had two reasons to never worry about this scenario: Either Obama would discontinue rendition or else a left-wing court would make him suffer the consequences.

Surprise.
