US govt ‘gags’ Congress on Nuke deal

E-mail Print PDF

With the Indo-US civilian nuclear agreement remaining stalled, the State Department has issued a ‘virtual gag order’ to the Congress asking it to keep even unclassified information ‘secret’ out of fear that public disclosure could ‘torpedo’ the deal.

Lynne Weil, a spokeswoman for the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said the State Department provided a lot of information on the deal, but the committee has agreed not to disclose the answers because some data might be considered diplomatically sensitive.
