That's one possibility...Here's another & more probable one in my opinion......To hide criminal activity such as price fixing.
You trust Bush/Cheney not to hide everything behind a veil of Nat'l Security like Nixon tried to do? (Surprise.....I don't! )
BTW, If Nat'l. Security is the reason for hiding the details of these meetings then why have they refused to allow Senators (including Republican Senators) with "Top Secret" clearances see the transcripts?.....I think the answer is pretty obvious.
