(r;th W2T.v,; M HARRISON This is written just a few days following the 1952 election While I have had opportunity to personal- ly thank many who sup or ted me and worked for my reelection, there are many, many others whom I have not been able to see. There- in bounds of actual security-- using the term "security" in its purest sense. I do not believe that agency bungling should be covered up by withholding infor- mation about that bungling. Such was the case with the executive fore, I want to take this means order to the OPS to withhold in- of saying-thank you, and express-[ formation which might be "em- ing my appreciation. | barrassing" to the agency. This I will do my utmost to serve faithfully and well, and I will do everything I can to justify the great confidence you have shown in me by sending me back to Congress with such a large vote majority. WHH During the recent campaign, I was disturbed more than a little by the piecemeal disclosure of hitherto "classified" information concerning the Korean conflict and the events of history leading to it. Documents which had been bur- ied from public notice for several years were quoted in several in- stances, and the secrecy wraps were thrown off a number of pre-Korean reports which might have given the American public more of an insight into the matter had they been published earlier. The entire question of "security" is involved in this matter. There is a question whether the public interest was served by withhold- ing information, or whether the American people should have been given the historical facts leading to Korea immediately upon the outbreak in mid-1950. I am inclined to believe that the American people should be fully informed concerning the op- erations of their government, with- order was withdrawn after its true nature was inadvertently re- vealed by the OPS itself. The President subsequently prohibited publication of "security" informa- tion even after it had been cleared by defense and related agencies. This, of course, brought a storm of protest from newSmen and others--and rightfully so. Natural- ly, I do not advocate unbridled publication of information which would actually endanger our na- tional security; but I do believe that within actual security bounds, the American people should be kept informed of and by their government. Warnings of the danger-spot of Korea were contained in reports long suppressed by the federal government. Had these reports been made public, it is possible that public opinion would have demanded these warnings be heed- ed. I have faith in the American people, and believe they should be given a more direct voice in governmental operations. They can- not intelligently exercise this right unless they are kept informed, accurately and fully.
