Chertoff on Spy Satellites: "Trust Us!"
"One lesson I've learned is it's not enough to say we know what we're doing is going to be OK," Chertoff told the paper in an interview. "We've got to really make it clear to the public that we're doing this, but we're not doing that."
A little bit of this, a little bit of that.
