Bad bad news

does this mean that Bush has bought the supreme court?

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court Monday refused to hear an appeal by civil liberties groups seeking access to basic data about hundreds of individuals detained by the federal government after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

The decision allows the government to continue withholding the names of most detainees, as well as other information related to their arrests, indefinitely.

In a brief order released without published dissent, the court turned down a petition by the Center for National Security Studies, the American Civil Liberties Union and several media organizations that had argued that the Bush administration's refusal to release the information violated the Freedom of Information Act and the constitutional guarantee of freedom of the press.
I must say, I am getting pretty sick of ShrubCo playing the "national security" card. It does get a bit old.
