"The chain of accountability for these cables goes to tax payers via elected officials (and layers upon layers of bureaucrats). If you want to change that, elect someone who runs on the platform of total government transparency.'
You keep trying to make the same point over and over again. Without success. It has NOTHING to do with electing good officials, that is usually impossible as we have a choice of criminal oligarch scumbucket 'A' or criminal scumbucket 'B' with the only difference being the letter after their names.
This is a nation of LAWS, not of men; our laws should be designed so that whatever crooked Asshole we elect has no way to hide their actions. Procedures should be in place, and restrictions on the power and secrecy of each and every govermental entity and everyone working for it, that protect us from the WORST person that could concievably hold the position.
