The Most Transparent Administration EVER!

From the Associated Press:

WASHINGTON — For at least a year, the Homeland Security Department detoured requests for federal records to senior political advisers for highly unusual scrutiny, probing for information about the requesters and delaying disclosures deemed too politically sensitive, according to nearly 1,000 pages of internal e-mails obtained by The Associated Press.

But in July 2009, Homeland Security introduced a directive requiring a wide range of information to be vetted by political appointees for "awareness purposes," no matter who requested it.

  1. White House transparency
    1. Obama yields on White House visitor logs
    2. Help figure out who has been calling on Obama
    3. Obama is sued for White House visitor list

Career employees were ordered to provide Secretary Janet Napolitano's political staff with information about the people who asked for records...and about the organizations where they worked.
