PROMISES, PROMISES: A closed meeting on openness

By SHARON THEIMER (AP) – 8 hours ago

WASHINGTON — It's hardly the image of transparency the Obama administration wants to project: A workshop on government openness is closed to the public.

The event Monday for federal employees is a fitting symbol of President Barack Obama's uneven record so far on the Freedom of Information Act, a big part of keeping his campaign promise to make his administration the most transparent ever. As Obama's first year in office ends, the government's actions when the public and press seek information are not yet matching up with the president's words.

More bureaucratic runaround. Guess these guys spend too much time reading their own press (or smelling their own farts :sick: toothy )
