Last quote by Chuck Hagel

Trust and confidence of the people is the coin of the realm for leaders and nations. That requires an openness even on sensitive issues. Certain specifics must always stay classified for national security reasons but should be classified only when absolutely necessary. When you close down information channels and stop the flow of information you invite questions, distrust and investigations.feedback
