A 360° Discussion of Foreign, National and Local Policy Issues

Government Secrets…Who Needs to Know?

This topic was discussed on November 11, 2013.

Given the recent furor over the NSA and other governmental programs, the question we will be discussing is “are there activities of the US Government about which Americans do not have a need to know.” to the extent that we agree that there are some activities best kept secret, we will undoubtedly spend most of the time exploring:

  • What sort of activities should be secret?
  • If not everyone,who should know about these activities? Oversight by Congress? A Congressional committee? The Judiciary? The Administration?
