    Unfortunately most government do have too many secrets.

    I agree with Dan here. I want to see a lot of transparency in the government; but I'm not holding my breath on this one. I don't know if it will do what it needs to do. Maybe some independent agency in charge of documenting government should do this. But so long as the parties can get their mits on this, we'll not see true transparency.

And I agree, Congress under Bush was far far far too wussy to stand up against Bush on this.. well Cheney more likely. And congress should stand up against Obama and demand that he follow the law, I agree fully. Then again so should Congress
    How would anyone ever know how many 'too many' are?

    Obama claims openness then he and his disciples hold more secret meeting than Bush did. The only openness coming from this imbecile is aimed at hurting our Nation in favor of his Muslim pals.
    Post #3 and the thread has gone full-retard! Wow, Councilman, you're really on your game today.

    I think over all it's a good move. Having people whose sole job it is to keep an eye on the declassification of old materials is a good thing. There will always be executive oversight and privilege, but this is a move in the right direction.

    Too many secrets are the downfall of any relationship, including that of countryman and state.

    Let's not forget that there are secrets that need to be kept that way. Such things as the Nuclear launch codes and other military secrets need to be kept under lock & key!

    I agree, I think underneath, everyone wants to know? If nothing happen, lets move on, if something happen, let's $%^ or get off the toilet.
