The judge didn't order the feds to suddenly release all sorts of classified or secret information. All the judge did was to tell the Justice Department that it has to speed up its response to a request for information about the National Security Agency program. And the information that initially will be released will be very unspecific. The big battles are yet to come over how much of this stuff eventually is made public.
I think prosecutors and the judge are going to see the case as a perfect vehicle to send a message that this sort of conduct, whatever the motives, just won?t be tolerated. And I think that push is going to be more powerful than any argument that they get a lot of leniency because of their age or anything else.
