So basically, they can classify anything they want, then it's up to someone to challenge them on it, and go to some type of government arbitration court. Very convenient. And there are no penalties when the people who redact are caught red-handed lying about the reason for classification.

Scenario:

- A document states that a theoretical government official sold weapons to terrorists, and their private foundation took the cash that was paid by said terrorists.
- That information is redacted from documents, and when questioned about why the redaction, the answer is that it's for national security, at which point, everyone has to accept that explanation.
