Information in the following site provides what is the ultimate abuse of the State Secrets Act, coupled with the Governments egregious penchant to "classify" that which is labeled as "national security" in most cases, but in rare instances the excuse and threat of having information "seriously effect the further prosecution of the war" by supposedly providing the "enemy" with information that would, when exposed, obliterate the justification for the war in the first place. Now, we couldn't have that, could we? Just think of what the anti-war groups would do with such information?!
However, what "treason in wartime" shows us is the reliance on "classified" material, so sensitive it requires Top Secret classification, the exposure of which would cause grave danger to the United States (war plans) to cover the crime of defying presidential directives issued during wartime and creating the opportunity to expand a given war beyond it's current bor ders.
