So much for openness

The Obama administration has taken the position that the details of a treaty on intellectual property need to be kept secret in the interests of national security.

Let's hope that this is the action of some lower-level bureaucrat left over from the Bush administration who didn't get the memo from the President explicitly directing a halt to this sort of bullshit. That's not a particularly good outcome given how much trouble Obama is having keeping things under control. But it's a hell of a lot better than the alternative.
