For that purpose among others, we have organizations sprouting about i.e. Wikileaks and it gives the allure that we are receiving information that the government doesn't want to let out and otherwise are hiding.
I'm not sure if this country (meaning the collective) could handle or operate at even the current weakened structure knowing some of the things that are probably really going on. Looking at it from a parenting (governing) perspective, our parents don't tell us everything they know and we really don't need to know why they do what they do. In the same case, our government is such - there are certainly things that we should know however, there are also those things that we don't know and for obvious reasons to those in power clearly don't need to know.
Transparency sounds nice, but I believe the after effect proves the process itself would be flawed.
