Dennis F. Thompson explores a neglected dilemma of governmental secrecy. Governments cannot be held accountable for policies and practices they keep secret, but some policies and practices cannot be fully public without undermining their efficacy. Among the instances he considers are Clinton's Task Force on Health Care Reform, covert drug operations, gays in the military, physician-assisted suicide, and the misuse of the National Security Council.
