Skip to comments.Obama yields on White House visitor logs
Posted on 09/04/2009 8:22:06 AM PDT by Titus-Maximus
The Obama administration says it will release names of most visitors to the White House, starting at the end of this year. Information on visitors in the first eight months of his administration will remain secret unless you know which names to ask for.
The White House called the release of information "voluntary," continuing to argue the Bush administration's position that full disclosure is not required by the Freedom of Information Act.
After being sued twice by a nonprofit organization seeking the records, the Obama administration said Friday it will post the visitor logs online. The release will be time delayed, with 90 to 120 days passing before the records are posted on the White House Web site. And only visits after Sept. 15, 2009, will be revealed.

Hypocrisy Hypocrisy Hypocrisy
With all the technology in “our” house, there really is no need to visit our White House.
“Information on visitors in the first eight months of his administration will remain secret unless you know which names to ask for.”
How about any Arab-sounding name?
I wonder what he’s hiding this time???
Yep, that’s a big one. Another would be Jeff Jones?
He’s only doing it because of that and the fact that when we find out just who is visiting 1600 on a regular basis it will add to our fear and outrage.
Zero & his posse seem to enjoy starting a fire and throwing gas on it.
This is such a joke. It’s non-compliant compliance. They’re going to overwhelm anyone looking for names by releasing tens of thousands of names each month, including every tour visitor to the white house. No one cares about them. The white house says it WILL NOT release the names of “purely personal” visitors or names they deem to be sensitive to national security. The WHITE HOUSE will still decide what is released. I would guess that means Rev. Wright could visit every week and never be named. What a sham.
Maybe the people who went on a joyride on Air Force 1.
It says MOST visitors...so he can still hide who he wants.
What a bunch of crap this is. Transparency? Not at all.
Friends and family of the Pres. and VP will NOT be released.
We haven’t forgotten whose on this list and who is currently advising Obama, have we?
No names of those pre-Sept. 15...would have been nice to know those who had Barry’s ear in light of all the nonsense shoved through since January.
No names of those who would be meeting with Obama regarding sensitive issues...very subjective.
All in all, there is no transparency and this is more of the same from this administration.
LMAO this is a JOKE....right? Name avowed communists and terrorist and chicago mob rulers and we are in like Flynn.
No bet(s) required for something that is already a given.
“..most visitors to the White House”
Why even bother if you can cherry pick out the names you do not want the public to see anyway...............
I’ll bet a few savvy people would know which names to ask about. I hope they do, then share with Rush, Hannity, Beck, etc.
As well as name CEO’s of all the payoffs of WallStreet/Healthcare that are on the take with the WH.
Which means absolutely nothing. Most visitors? Is there a single living person who thinks they'd release the name of a single visitor that might raise awkward questions for the White House?
