US Secret Govt

WEB DESK – US president Barack Obama has made government businesses more secret than ever before by censoring more and more official documents.

According to American media reports, despite promising he would preside over the most transparent administration in US history, President Barack Obama’s White House is setting new records with regards to not releasing government documents.

According to the Associate Press, the Obama administration has exhibited anything but what the president promised with regards to maintaining an open and transparent White House.

Only in the year 2013, the US government cited ‘national security‘ a record 8,496 times as a reason to withhold documents requested through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) filings.
