Diary

"I will never hide the truth because it's uncomfortable."....... Guess who said it ?

Yessum, our very own D.I.T.P. was The Won who up ‘n orated his message so succinctly.

But wait…… there’s more.

“I will tell the American people what I know and don’t know, and when I release something publicly or keep something secret, I will tell you why,” Obama said at the time.

Mr. Tapper, I salute you, Sir.  In this day and age, you are truly one of a kind and I pray daily that your security detail remains at the top of their game, unwavering.

I have a feeling this latest entry from Mr. Tapper is the prelude to what willbe a “quite interesting’ missive into the Executive Order regarding Interpol discussed here through several diaries.

ABC News’ Jon Garcia reports:

President Obama, in a move meant to show he’s committed to government transparency, has issued a new executive order designed to take a first whack at simplifying the information classification system.

Foremost, the order limits appeals by agencies to keep documents classified and stops agencies from keeping documents classified indefinitely. It also sets a deadline: Agencies must clear a backlog of some 400 million pages of classified material by the end of 2013 — and all documents deemed OK to declassify must be made available to the public by that date, too.

Obama has also streamlined the list of who can classify information and at what level and makes provisions to update and install technology to help the declassification board process materials faster.
