    The information is cloaked with a veil of secrecy. We don't know the extent of current abuse because we aren't permitted to even ask the question, and those of our elected representatives who have asked the question are not permitted to tell us the answer. The way we know there is still abuse is that certain of our senators tell us there are serious problems, but they aren't permitted to tell us what those problems are. That's the thing about secrecy, why it is antithetical to democracy. You can't know that which you are not permitted to know.
