Obama: ‘Most transparent administration ever’ meets Fast & Furious
June 21, 2011 - 3:55 pm
From the White House web site:
My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government.
Here’s an example of Obama’s “unprecedented level of openness in Government.”
Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, holds one of many redacted documents submitted by DOJ in response to the committee’s subpoenas about Fast & Furious.
Watch the 7 minute video of Issa repeatedly asking Weich, who’s the highest level person who authorized Fast & Furious, while Weich keeps repeating a dodge about the inspector general looking into it.
