Two days ago, WikiLeaks was a fairly obscure website. Now, having released more than 90,000 classified military documents, it's the go-to source for a secret history of the war in Afghanistan. We speak to a Harvard professor about efforts — from foreign policy to local government — to push the envelope of transparency.

Guest:

  • Archon Fung, professor at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government and the co-author of "Full Disclosure: The Perils and Promise of Transparency."

This program aired on July 27, 2010.
