I don't think they should tell us what there secrets are because if they get out into the world anybody can review them which could reach around the world to enemy countries and then they can create the same weapon or vehicle or whatever were working on. what do you guys think?

They should definitely tell us what they're doing because if they don't we'll never be prepared for what's to come -- and perhaps american citizens would have a better idea as to what to do in regards to foreign relations. Maybe there's something the government's overlooking. Maybe not. But either way, citizens should know about what their government is planning; otherwise citizens like you and I would not know what we'll be getting ourselves into.

if it is a mission in progress, then yes it should be kept hidden. for example osama bin laden. it was kept secret until we caught him. it also depends what you mean by keeping secret. do you mean small missions? or do you mean something else.
