Attacks On September 11, 2001, brought about a number of changes in the U.S.
national security outlook, not the least of which was a renewed willingness to
consider covert action as a policy option. During this same period, the single
most significant change in the military services has been the expansion (in both

Secrecy of matters of high policy, I am arguing, is motivated not by classic
arguments about the need for secrecy in the conduct of diplomacy and military

United States, within the government, Congress, and the general public. The
ability to maintain secrecy is an important component of presidential power. This
means that it ...
