"Both our political and religious traditions instruct us that the truth
makes us free. Our kind of government can govern effectively only by
telling the truth, just as effective citizenship depends on knowing the
truth. Official secrecy and official lies, even in a 'good cause,' can
carry us toward tyranny. Our government is meant to conduct the public's
business in public."
