“The government keeps asserting state secrets. My question is: once state secrets are invoked involving mass murder, there's something wrong with that whole procedure. Mass murder should not be covered by state secrets. This is, my opinion is, what's happening. That needs to be changed. I mean, you cannot have one murder, let alone the murder of thousands of people, protected under state secrets. Justice isn't being served. Lady Justice, and the scales of justice, she wears a blindfold. And the reason why she wears a blindfold is because we take the evidence wherever it takes us, regardless of where it goes. The good, the bad, the ugly. Once we start allowing the scales of justice to lift up that blindfold, we're really undermining the whole judicial system's foundation and we can't have that." – Ken Williams
