It sounds like a joke. A man walks into the Library of Congress and asks for a list of everything he's not allowed to see. What's on the list? Shh. The government doesn't want you to know. Secret wiretaps, intercepted emails, confidential phone records. What does the government have on you? Ted Gup's new book Nation of Secrets examines the growing culture of secrecy. The award winning investigative reporter, and Case Western Reserve University professor, says the nation faces the "perfect storm" of secrecy that threatens to engulf democracy and alter the landscape of America. Join Regina Brett and find out what the government doesn't want you to know Friday morning on The Sound of Ideas.
