Aljazeera.Net - US can keep 9/11 arrests secret

Aljazeera.Net - US can keep 9/11 arrests secret: "The US Supreme Court has ruled that the Bush administration can keep secret the names of hundreds of people questioned, detained or arrested since September 11.
The ruling on Monday, which is certain to dismay human rights activists worldwide, also allows the administration to keep away from public domain other basic details of the detainees and those questioned."

Hundreds? Didn't they say thousands? Heck, how should I know, I'm nothing but an American citizen, who used to have the right to not have to worry about the government spiriting me away on half-baked accusations..but now doesn't.
