US sets new record for denying, censoring government files under Obama

I seem to recall a certain someone saying, oh yeah, here it is:
"Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency." ~ President Barack Hussein Obama, 01/21/09

...under the president who sealed all of his own records to keep us from really knowing who he was! Hasn't been any stretch of the imagination to call "BS!" before the word 'transparency' was ever uttered from his lips. And his lawless executive actions, along with all of the administrative scandals, speak volumes to his notion of rule of law...
AP: The Obama administration set a new record again for more often than ever censoring government files or outright denying access to them last year under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act, according to a new analysis of federal data by The Associated Press.

The government took longer to turn over files when it provided any, said more regularly that it couldn't find documents, and refused a record number of times to turn over files quickly that might be especially newsworthy.

It also acknowledged in nearly 1 in 3 cases that its initial decisions to withhold or censor records were improper under the law - but only when it was challenged.
Note, this is state-run media reporting against its own masterminds!

But somehow it's a good idea to allow this administration to take over everything from our healthcare to the internet? Second verse, same as the first: BS!
