The above seems entirely reasonable, and I would submit the government's own behavior supports the notion. It is entirely maddening, trying to figure just how the government thinks hiding information, going to the insane lengths of defying Parliament, will play out positively for their side. However, it does make sense if the government has concern that full disclosure now would show a coverup did take place, all their rationale evaporating in the face of naked political self interest. If the dynamic Travers suggests does in fact exist, this issue moves to full blown scandal and that reaches the "kitchen table".

As recent media reports have confirmed, a comparison of redacted and unredacted versions of the same document have shown that the Conservative government censored information that contradicted their claim to be ignorant of abuse and torture rather than out of concern for national security.
“Here we had two versions of the same document written by an unidentified sergeant – but the version redacted by the Conservatives scrubbed out the critical piece of information that Afghan National Police were known to have assaulted detainees ‘in the past,’” said Mr. Dosanjh.
