  • Yes, we should know.

    I think that the military should indeed be more transparent to the rest of the United States of America. We have a vested interest in knowing what it is our military is doing, and the more open sharing of information is a good first step as to educating ourselves better.

  • Yes, they should.

    It has become increasingly clear that the U.S. military believes that it is above the law and they are willingly to do horrific things in order to pursue their goals. They believe they can target Americans, whether they are civilians or not. They believe that they can kill people without a trial, and they believe that they can use torture to punish people. We need to start knowing what exactly the military is doing, so we can stop the terrible abuses of power.

  • Yes, But Not In All Cases

    The military needs to keep some secrets for the sake of ongoing missions and the issue of national security. However, there should be some transparency. All to often, the Department of Defense uses national security to hide too many things and sweep them under the rug. That is just wrong.

  • No, the military should not be more transparent because of the sensitive nature of its work.

    The military should not be more transparent because of the nature of the work and what it represents. The military, if it were more transparent, might leak or give away secrets to other countries, and it could threaten national security, which would put the United States in the way of danger

  • No, the military should not be more transparent.

    No, I don't believe that the military should be more transparent. Although critics of the military and the spending on military that the government allows often say that a transparent military means less secrecy and more openness with its citizens, by having a more transparent military we open ourselves up to certain vulnerabilities. From things as simple as classified emails to things as complex as national military secrets, a more transparent military would be extremely detrimental to any country's government and military.
