National Security Cases in Court Martial
Aggressive Defense from Our Military Criminal Lawyers
A recent report from the Associated Press found that the Obama administration
denied Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests more than 479,000 times,
a figure which represents an increase of 22 percent over the year before.
Certain branches of the government were far more secretive than others,
such as the Central Intelligence Agency which denied 60 percent of all
FOIA requests last year, while the State Department responded to only
57 percent of requests as compared with 75 percent the year before.
Efforts Taken to Guard Secrets of the Government
Turning down FOIA requests is not the only action which the government
is taking to guard its secrets. There has also been an increase in the
number of prosecutions of individual service members who have been accused
of leaking classified information to the press or to the general public.
In some cases, those who are charged with national security violations
have taken action as whistleblowers, while in others they are mistakenly
accused based on honest mistakes or false information. Every one of them,
however, deserves fair treatment under law and proven legal defense to
fight against the charges.

court-martial defense, as they often involve complicated requests for
discovery of classified evidence and the requirement that everyone involved
in the closed court sessions be given a security clearance. The military
justice system prosecutes national security breaches aggressively, and
you cannot afford any delay in retaining legal representation.
