We will never know for sure, but it's obvious they can't tell us everything. If they did tell us most of what they did would not work correctly or at all. Secrecy is sometimes necessary for things to be successful. That can be either a good or bad thing, but it's the truth.
I have no doubt that the U.S Government does things that the public doesn't know about. I am sorry to tell people that they have to. If we knew everything intelligence was up to it might actually ruin our homeland security. Yes, we can all stand around saying that the President has no plan for ISIS, funny heard that same thing when it came to Osama Bin Laden. But in the end Bin Laden was taken down because there was much going on that wasn't told to the public. They can't tell us everyting even if we want to knwo about it.
They definitely do a lot of things without citizens knowing. The government really can't be trusted to tell citizens the truth. Politicians by nature are not honest people. They feel that the public does not need to know a lot of what they do. I have a feeling there is a lot of things the government does that the citizens do not know about.
No, the U.S. Government lets its citizens know what is going on in the nation.There is always a high degree of media exposure for politicians, whether it be in a formal address or a press conference or in-depth news articles.There is some discretion if the issue causes undue stress to citizens, such as terrorism threats. With 24-hour news channels in existence, it is impossible not to know what it going on. With the addition of social media, people can put pressure on governments in online postings urging the government to reveal more if people feel they are not adequately informed.
