It feels like (on the whole) we've gotten to busy-body-nosey about what the military does and does't do. Sometimes maybe we don't need to know everything (even though we're curious). Issues like 'how we extract information from terrorist" or "rather or not a POW is given well balanced meals" or "allowed to exercise". (Note: these are only examples , not actual representations)
Yes, there are things that an American Soldier should never do (or be ordered to do) - like booby-trapping the very young and old with explosive devices, or raping women (sexual assault has no place in a soldiers bag-o-tricks), or steal teenagers from the streets and force them to join-up. (I list these as exceptions because I think we can globally agree on tactics as extreme as these - *I think)
It seems to me that there are times that the more the public knows the less affective our military can be.
Do you agree or disagree that "maybe we don't need to know everything all the time"?
Why or why not?

I don't think the public needs to have total access. JMO.

I'm not directly involved and never will be, so I do not need to know the fine details.
I do hope the military is operating according to rules and regs-
