    1/3 of foia requests filibustered: PROMISES, PROMISES: Little transparency progress - Yahoo! News

    remember, issa says he has a whistle blower inside dhs who has sent issa's committee (house oversight) emails directing dept employees to screen for political purposes foia requests of a "controversial" nature

    i guess all that talk of transparency was just more of the same stringing americans along

    like closing gitmo, talking to iran, moving ksm to manhattan, ending the patriot act, prosecuting the cia...

    the above examples of broken promises appear to be more a matter of incompetence than character

    but this full out frustration of the foia...

    judge for yourself

    Re: GOP plans wave of White House probes

    Ahead of a congressional hearing this week on whether senior political appointees at the Department of Homeland Security have blocked the release of some documents requested under the Freedom of Information Act, a series of newly uncensored emails indicate that some staffers complained for months of internal "meddling" by Obama-appointed officials.

    Obtained by The Associated Press, the emails describe “crazy” and “bananas!” political reviews of document requests, and “constant stonewalling” as files went to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano’s political staff as part of the pre-release vetting process.

    In one recent instance cited by the AP, immigration rights advocates had asked the department for e-mails that political appointees had sent to U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement about a controversial program. The internal search uncovered "embarrassing, crude exchanges," that were revealed not by the senders of those emails but by the recipients.

    The department's chief privacy officer, Mary Ellen Callahan, herself a political appointee, warned in emails that the department could be sued for the delays sparked by the political reviews. "This level of attention is CRAZY," she wrote to her deputy in late 2009, musing that she hoped someone would submit a FOIA request on the process itself, the AP reported.

    constant STONEWALLING

    against FREEDEOM OF INFORMATION

    by the politico's in the white house

    This is what I figured. They would hound Obama like they hounded Clinton until they found something to take action against him on. Its sad.

    No, Bush NEVER made any back door deals. He was a very intelligent man and a great president, despite being a poor public speaker. The only problem was the Democrats running the House and Senate during his presidency. The ruined the economy, voted us into two wars, and blocked all of his common sense legislation that would have saved the country.

    Personally, I would rather Congress spend more time on this crap and less time on new regulations that do nothing but make it harder to get out and make money.
    Bush ran the country into the ground, Obama hasn't done as much damage... were you sleeping for 8 years?
