> If revealing the truth about what the Government is doing damages the standing prestige of the country, then is he implying that much of that prestige is based on a lie?

Are you trying to claim that 'if the government has done nothing wrong, it has nothing to fear'? I mean, I don't really care which way you believe on that idea but you should at least be logically consistent :P

I think logic would dictate that institutions claiming to be public should be public, and those claiming to be private should be private.

Why does logic dictate that? You make claims about logic but you are just falsely equivocating words in a semantic game.
