Secrecy in the United States: Priorities for the Next President Sept. 18, 2008
Thursday, September 18
6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
C. Walsh Theater, Suffolk University
Over the last eight years, Federal policymakers have struggled with contending claims about national security, executive privilege, and open government. Is the current administration excessively secretive? Or are its methods simply the most effective way to protect our nation in the post-9/11 world? Tonight, in recognition of International Right to Know Day, Thomas S. Blanton, Director of the National Security Archive at George Washington University, joins Professor Alasdair Roberts, Suffolk University Law School, to discuss government transparency and suggest top reform priorities for the next President.
Book signing will follow lecture and discussion.
