Secrecy

June 14, 2013 - Harry Eagar
It does seem like kind of a long while since I've been able to point to somebody stating tge obvious so I can restate it. But here's a repeat that seems so obvious that it's astonishing that it took several days for somebody -- Kurt Eichenwald at Vanity Fair -- to say it:

"(And before someone launches into the “F.I.S.A. is secret” wail, remember this: so are grand-jury investigations that result in subpoenas being issued in criminal cases.)"

As are Family Court, legal disciplinary proceedings and much else.

Going off topic. 1984 was written by George Orwell in 1948. Big Brother. I read this book in 1969 as a freshman in High School. Secrecy is needed to keep the security of a country but if action is not taken it is a waste of time and privacy.

9/11 was known. Dec. 7th was known. Benghazi was known. Yet it happened. Seems something is lacking. Secrecy is not the same as transparency. I believe that if there is transparency for our President than we as Americans should be transparent as well with nothing to hide. Secrecy and privacy are needed.

Facebook and tweeters seems to be the public way of spreading secrecy around. With modern technology from 1948 to now is a big difference. The World ate an apple computer and now they know they are naked.
