State Secrets: A Government Misstep in a Wiretapping Case

The April 28, 2008 issue of The New Yorker has an article, " State Secrets: A Government Misstep in a Wiretapping Case," by Patrick Radden Keefe. This article is about the government's disclosure to our law firm of classified information that apparently disclosed the existence of the government's warrantless wiretapping of attorney-client communications with several clients in early 2004.
