Government shouldn't be allowed to keep any secrets from the public
I don't think many people would agree with that, but there does need to be far more transparency than there is today.
Secret courts needs to go. National Security Letters need to go. Warrantless wiretapping, etc., etc.. -- Authoritarian attacks on whistleblowers, the press, etc...
What we need to remove is the apparatus that's set up to protect corrupt profit taking in the name of "security". It's absolutely out of control.
The top-secret world the government created in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, has become so large, so unwieldy and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs, how many programs exist within it or exactly how many agencies do the same work.
