The traditional American distrust of secrecy and government, finds expression on our nation's capital in a number of ways. The very halls of congress for example, are laid out in such a way as to afford any interested citizen a clear, unobstructed view of its lawmakers in action. Galleries open to the public rise steeply on all four sides of both the House and Senate chambers. Everything congress does, whether in regular session or in committee, are matters not merely of public record, but subject also to the closest public scrutiny. Occasionally however, circumstances arise, which compel a congressional body to close its doors to the public, and meet in camera. But when a sensitive Senate report is leaked to the public, we're left with a superb whodunnit!
