Transparency, Guantánamo-style

As reported by Charlie Savage of The New York Times, a 9/11 military commission hearing has been postponed, but the reason cannot yet be revealed:
A military judge on Friday abruptly canceled a two-week pretrial hearing scheduled to open on Monday at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, in the case against Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and four other detainees accused of aiding the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. 
A Pentagon spokesman, Lt. Commander Gary Ross, said the judge, Col. James Pohl of the Army, had received a filing from one of the parties in the case “and decided that impacted the hearing.” But he said he was not at liberty to say more about it yet. . . .
Why not? Can't even say which party made the filing?
