Is the Obama Administration the Most Transparent Administration Ever?

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. …
Career employees were ordered to provide Secretary Janet Napolitano’s political staff with information about the people who asked for records — such as where they lived, whether they were private citizens or reporters — and about the organizations where they worked.
If a member of Congress sought such documents, employees were told to specify Democrat or Republican.

  • They are trying to take congresses power away from them, and give it to the president.

    Even Robert Byrd wrote a letter to Obama regarding that. He was not happy with all the czars being used to bypass congress.

    They are trying to destroy FOX news, and talk radio.


    They remind me of Chavez & Castro.


    You would have to be blind if you can't see what they are up too. even though they are trying to hide it.

  • So, if it appears that Napolitano delayed/interfered with certain members of Congress from getting information~ should there be further oversight and investigation? Information based on the political affiliation of those asking for the data?? Seriously? Wow, where is the transparency and accountability on that one....
