Question-Answer Assignment (Essay Sample)


This assignment is just answering the questions for the homework.
Bloomberg News just received a leaked copy of a classified report about U.S. strategy in Iran. The report indicated that the next time that President Trump concludes that Iran has attacked U.S. assets (including drones, commercial ships, and computer systems in addition to military targets), the administration will order that U.S. armed forces institute a blockade of all Iranian ports and prevent all traffic in or out of Iranian ports. The blockade would only end when the Iranian government agreed to dismantle its nuclear program and consent to free elections conducted under international supervision.
The report also discussed the specifics of how the military would accomplish the blockade and it included the various opinions of high-ranking military officers, and analysts in the defense and state department about the costs, risks, and benefits of such a blockade. (Some of these opinions concluded that the risks would be minimal and that Iran would be forced to capitulate. Other opinions suggested that the blockade would provoke a long, drawn out war with costs and casualties projected to exceed the cost of the Iraq war, perhaps even resulting in Russian and/or Chinese military forces coming to Iran’s defense.
Suppose the Trump Administration wanted to get an injunction preventing the publication of this report on national security grounds. The administration claims that the publication of this strategy would alert the Iranian government and others who are hostile to U.S. interests about the possible change in strategy and give them an opportunity to prepare for the U.S. blockade. It would also give anti-war opponents in the U.S. an opportunity to protest and attempt to change U.S. policy.

1 For the government to get an injunction based on the per Curiam opinion in the Pentagon Papers case, the following needs to be proved: According to page 97, the court must first confirm if the interest of the government is to protect national security because some political leaders may use that opportunity to protect criminality, incompetence or poor judgment. Therefore, in the Pentagon Paper case, for the court to approve the injunction, the government needs to prove that the leaked report will affect national security. The leaked report contains classified information concerning the United States' strategy to protect government assets from being attacked by the Iranian government.
2 One concurring opinion in the pentagon Paper case is that the leaked report's publication will alert the Iranian government and other hostile parties about the U.S. blockade plan. Based on this opinion, the First Amendment can prevent the government from getting an injunction because of the following: According to Douglas and Justices Black on page 100, the government cannot censor any information distributed by the press. According to the First Amendment, one reason the free press was created is to protect people's interest against government exploitation.
3 According to the case U.S. District Court v. United States, three defendants are prosecuted by the government b
