How’s that transparency thing working out for you?

The Obama administration conducted a workshop on government openness for federal employees behind closed doors Monday, a private training session for freedom-of-information officials to learn about a new U.S. office that settle disputes between the bureaucracy and the public.

The decision to preclude the public and the media from attending Monday’s workshop left open government advocates scratching their heads, given President Barack Obama’s campaign promise to make his administration the most transparent ever. A reporter for The Associated Press was turned away from the door Monday. Link

“The Freedom of Information Act should be administered with a clear presumption: In the face of doubt, openness prevails,” Obama told government offices on his first full day as president.

Unless of course it doesn’t.

  1. Government openness, behind closed doors..sounds right.
    More of the same…Smoke and Mirrors.
    What surprises me is that they announced their training exercises.

  2. I don’t think it was a training class as much as giving their marching orders to the obama-bots

  3. Obama? Open and transparent?
    How bout that BC?.
    College records?
    Medical records?
    Any school records?

    The only thing transparent about B-HO is his plan for destroying America.

  4. I’ve never doubted B-HØ’s transparency, I’ve always seen right through him.

    There is one organization that needs more transparency, the WHO.
    Swine Flu Bribe Fever.

    Leading epiemiologists are now predicting the pandemic may rank as the mildest on record.

  5. I coined a term today regarding this. I call it Transparony: “The irony that the most transparent administration in history does all of its governing behind closed, partisan doors.”
