On Friday, the Circuit Court for the District of Columbia announced its decision to allow President Obama to keep secret, White House visitor logs for up to 12 years after he leaves office.
The case was brought about after the Obama administration refused to comply with a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to view the logs, which was filed by the government watchdog group known as Judicial Watch.
After the decision was made public, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, commented:
A president that doesn’t want Americans, under law, to know who his visitors are is a president who doesn’t want to be accountable. The appellate court decision punches another hole in the Freedom of Information Act, the law which allows Americans to know what their government is up to. We are strongly considering an appeal. The legal gymnastics in this unprecedented decision shows that President Obama is not the only one willing to rewrite laws without going through Congress...
Of course, upon taking office, Obama promised to have "the most transparent administration" in U.S. history.
So, the question becomes...
Just who is this president meeting with?
