Many arguments about government programs, particularly national security-related programs, come down to a tradeoff between open government and (supposedly) national security concerns. I propose a "time lock" concept whereby if the government claims an issues is too sensitive to disclose for national security reasons, then the issue can be put in a figurative or literal "vault" to be released without question in a fixed number of years. So, the information would eventually see the light of day and the public would know how valid the original natinal security concerns were.
