>> Well, it turns out national security might not have been why the subpoenas were obtained in secret:

"For five days, reporters at the Associated Press had been sitting on a big scoop about a foiled al-Qaeda plot at the request of CIA officials. Then, in a hastily scheduled Monday morning meeting, the journalists were asked by agency officials to hold off on publishing the story for just one more day.

The CIA officials, who had initially cited national security concerns in an attempt to delay publication, no longer had those worries, according to individuals familiar with the exchange. Instead, the Obama administration was planning to announce the successful counterterrorism operation that Tuesday.
I knew that story was a crock of **** from the beginning, the second i heard Holder talk about, "in all his years as a corrupt ****bird he's never experienced a leak this big". It was all faux concern.
