Open government? If anything most of the materials contained in the Wikileaks prove that our government is anything but open, and often not even democratic.  If American diplomats think, for example, that Vladamir Putin is basically a gangster shouldn’t the American people be given this same appraisal?Secrecy doesn't strengthen democracy, it kills it.
