    The brutal reality is that the public doesn’t give a damn about government overclassification & excessive secrecy…and it’s that apathy that has helped make possible the creation of what I call “the Cult of the National Security State”, which has spawned 1) industrial scale warrantless surveillance, 2) mindless use of ionizing radiation scanners at airports,  3) a national war-by-drone fetish. As the saying goes, “People get the government they deserve”.

    I don’t agree with the premise, but as someone with TS/SCI maybe I’m biased? I’ve been working with classified info for 13 years, and I very, very rarely see what I’d consider misclassified information. Maybe a handful of times. I’m not sure what the problem is supposed to be.
