I’m a member of the Society of Professional Journalists and the National Press Club. My instincts are for transparency in government and to applaud those who lift the veil on secrets.
However, I am an American, living in post 9/11 U.S.A. and my instincts are to label those who would expose the steps to keep me safe as traitors. I want to keep some secrets secret for the common good of all people, and especially Americans.
I have duel instincts.
