The U.S. government definitely keeps a lot of information away from the citizens. Granted, some information is essential to keep quiet for the safety of the country and government, but there is still a lot that could be told. Being open would create a lot more trust between the people and the government and would be beneficial.
I do not believe the US government discloses enough information about its inner workings. The revelations of Edward Snowden were proof that the government tries to hide far too much information. I believe our government needs to become more transparent. Obama promised this and had done nothing but make it less transparent.
I think that our nation has a lot of transparency in comparison with other countires, but we still need to disclose more to truly understand what is going on. If this is a government that is by the people and for the people, then we need to know what is being done in our name.
No, the U.S. government does not disclose enough information about its inner workings, because most people had no idea how much we were being spied on. You'd think that your own government collecting and reading every email and phone call that you place would be relevant information to the general public.
