This Politico article discusses the angst suffered by The One over releasing Bush memos detailing CIA interrogation techniques.
This quote from Axelrod was the most unbelievable:
“He thought very long and hard about it, consulted widely, because there were two principles at stake,” Axelrod said . “One is … the sanctity of covert operations … and keeping faith with the people who do them, and the impact on national security, on the one hand. And the other was the law and his belief in transparency.”
Transparency? What about the bailout money? The list of banks on the watch list. A host of other Obama projects with the lid clamped on tighter than a tick on a dog. Transparency is only good when it aids our enemies.
As one former Bush Administration official was quoted as saying, unbelievable.
