I suppose you think all pictures from our spy satellites should be released as well.
Well, I can see some possible arguments
qua respecting the privac
y of American citizens.
What about all the info about Dick Cheney's meetings with oil executives when he was VP.
That was the use of public property. Why was ]that withheld?
If records of them were made, then very possibly, thay shoud be revealed.
A counter-argument to that is that if a citizen knows that
whatever he tells a holder of public office will become public,
then information will be withheld from them, in the first place.
Laden was not in that decision-making situation at the end of his life.
He probably did not
request confidentiality, as he was being shot.
The government keeps secrets. Some for good reasons.
Some for bad reasons.Unless you completely support Wikileaks
and everything they have released you are being a hypocrite David.
Nothing that I have said is insincere,
but I do not allege that every possible scenario concerning privacy
has been fully analysed, as to the propriety of its release to the public.
Not everything need be decided today.
