A federal appeals court is asking the Obama administration to explain why the government should be allowed to keep secret its plan to shutter mobile phone service during "critical emergencies."

The Department of Homeland Security came up with the plan—known as Standing Operating Procedure 303—after cellular phones were used to detonate explosives targeting a London public transportation system
The government's Standing Operating Procedure 303 must be kept secret because, as stated in the article, revealing it "could reasonably be expected to endanger the life or physical safety of any individual". Meanwhile, Americans who have gone over to the mid-east to fight with ISIS are being allowed to return to the U.S.  :rolleyes:
