This pervasive sealing cripples public discussion of whether these judicial orders are lawful and appropriate.
Well of course it does. This is because they know very well that the orders are neither lawful nor appropriate. Furthermore they consider their ability to continue undermining national security a process that is vital to national security. So in order to maintain security, they must keep violating our security and must not allow public discourse to reach an informed consensus about what even constitutes security.
And that's not even touching on the privacy issues. Does anyone actually even need this shit unsealed to see the blatantly obvious logical flaw in the reasoning behind it being sealed in the first place?
