Least Compelling National Security Rationale Ever

by Tom Bozzo

From 9CA, OK'ing the use of high-powered sonar in planned naval training exercises off the California coast:
"The public does indeed have a very considerable interest in preserving our natural environment and especially relatively scarce whales," Judge Andrew Kleinfeld wrote for the majority. "But it also has an interest in national defense. We are currently engaged in war, in two countries."
Someday, one of the countries we're at war with might even have a navy.
