Top Secret America

This is an important Washington Post investigative story on the growth of “Top Secret America” since the 9/11 terror attacks: Top Secret America – A Washington Post Investigation

Radio 1130 host Mark Belling has called us “liberal” because we believe The Patriot Act is a violation of the 4th and 5th Amendments.  I think this story exemplifies some of the concerns that have.  With all of these top secret agencies, as the story points out, who really has oversight over all of the “tentacles” of these agencies.  Because of all the secrecy, our rights can be violated and there is no due process for “We The People”.  Here is a quote from the start of the Washington Post story (by Dana Priest and William Arkin) :

“The top-secret world the government created in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, has become so large, so unwieldy and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs, how many programs exist within it or exactly how many agencies do the same work.”
