Obama Denies Freedom Of Information Requests At Record Rates

 

 

 

” President Obama was swept to office amidst his pledge that he’d run the “most transparent administration in history.” A new report out finds that he hasn’t even run the most transparent administration since the previous one.

  The Associated Press analyzed the federal government’s own Freedom of Information Act data and found that federal agencies under President Obama have been as uncooperative as ever:

  The government’s own figures from 99 federal agencies covering six years show that halfway through its second term, the administration has made few meaningful improvements in the way it releases records. In category after category — except for reducing numbers of old requests and a slight increase in how often it waived copying fees — the government’s efforts to be more open about its activities last year were their worst since President Barack Obama took office.”
