"I live in a transparent country. I live in a country where decisions made by government are wide open and people are able to call people to – me to account, which many out here do on a regular basis."
- President George W. Bush, 2/24/05
"Secrecy in [the United States] government appears to be on the increase."
- Judge Robert W. Sweet of the Southern District of New York, 2/24/05
