How can we take on our vast secret government?

On the next Your Call, we'll talk about government secrecy and how it has exploded since 9/11. The Washington Post ran a series last week about the multi-billion dollar industry of "secret intelligence." Independent journalists have been reporting on this for years. Why is so much of U.S. intelligence secret? What should be secret? Join us live at 11 or send us an email at feedback@yourcallradio.org. What does this secrecy say about our democracy? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
