Obama stonewalls release of White House visitor logs
Examiner ^ | 4/30/10 | Jim Kouri

Posted on 04/30/2010 12:06:16 PM PDT by pissant

"Only the Obama administration could offer to release pre-scrubbed White House visitor logs while withholding tens of thousands of other records and call it transparency. President Obama has violated his campaign promises of openness and transparency. We hope the court will do what it has done on previous occasions and uphold FOIA law."

The Obama Justice Department advanced the erroneous claim in an April 21, 2010, court filing that Secret Service logs of White House visitors are not subject to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), according to a report released Wednesday by legal watchdog group Judicial Watch.

Whatever the legalities. There is no legitimate reason for him to conceal the list of white house visitors. The only possible reason is to conceal plans being concocted to the advantage of the visitor or the presidents political agenda.

He is corrupt.

Remember Bill Clinton, on the night of his election, announcing his administration would be the most ethical in history? Liberals always telegraph their flaws by what they promise. Obama was going to be transparent, free of special interests and honest. That’s the functional equivalent of a promise to be secretive, devoted to special interests, and corrupt. He’s kept his promises; you just have to understand Liberalspeak.

Omnipotent and eternal God, the everlasting Salvation of those who believe, hear us on behalf of Thy mentally sick creation, Barack Hussein Obama, for whom we beg the aid of Thy pitying mercy, that, with his mental health restored, he may give thanks to Thee in Thy Church and convert to Catholic Christianity. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Obama White House admits in the new court filing that it is taking records from the Secret Service in order to ensure that they are not disclosed under FOIA. The Obama administration speculates that there would be “dire national security consequences” if certain White House visitors are disclosed. The Obama White House wants to be able to withhold visitor logs until as long as 12 years after President Obama leaves office.

Obama lawyers want more secrecy at White House
A new government brief filed in a court dispute over the records argues, instead, that people with questions about who visits the White House should go to the White House website and ask for the information, and if the president agrees, it could be released.
http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=147581
Now it’s official. The Obama White House has made the bogus claim in court that the Secret Service’s logs of White House visitors are not subject to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and therefore may be kept secret from the American people. In other words, the Obama administration believes you have no right to know under law who visits the White House or under what circumstances.
