    Because Obama used the transparency claim in 08 as a cheap political ploy.

    Just how much transparency do you think you are entitled to from the intelligence community?? Honestly, I don't know what people expect. Ridiculous.

    Yes i know. And pretty much you can draw an inference from my post that his promise of transparency was a ploy and he really had no intentions of bringing transparency to the federal government espeically in area of inelegence.

    Abuses, more openness especially in areas of more records (DRONEZZZZ), more accountability from Freedom of Information Requests. Remember a democracy doesnt function well without a good digging press. So far that press has been shut out of the picture.

    So you think that, in the past, the intelligence community could share classified information with the press? You think that they could divulge proprietary information to their buddies in the newspaper business?

    What planet are you from and how long do you plan to visit?

    A lot of the classified information is essentially classified because its covering up wrongdoings done in the intelligence community....

    What planet are you from and how long do you plan to visit?
    What that i think reports should have the right to interview who they want? To investigative reporting? Hell most journalists if they uncover something that will endanger lives dont print that ****. Its called journalistic integrity or the "journalistic code". But do I want a deep digging, good press corps. Absolutely. I guess that would make me from America?

    People are still going to talk to the press. Talk to the press. No email trails. Information will still get out. Whether the leaked information serves us or hurts us rather depends, don't you think? As to firing them? Why the hell wouldn't they? If a grunt decides to be the next Snowden, I hope they fry his ass.

    If you're a cop, and you talk about an ongoing case to the press? You're in deep ****. Our intelligence community should be different??
