As part of the Obama administration’s campaign to promote transparency, the White House announced today it intends to eliminate the public’s access to half of the federal government’s websites within the next year.
The White House said there are nearly 2,000 websites operated by the federal government, which it said confuses people.
So, since it might confuse people, they will eliminate 1/2 of them. Hmmm, Okay, I guess their definition of transparency is different then mine.
