[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The Obama campaign promised an era of transparency that would stand in stark contrast to the secrecy of the Bush Administration. Over the years, even the most-ardent of liberals have been forced to admit that this promise has never come to fruition and the truly honest ones have been forced to admit that this administration operates with a level of secrecy that makes Bush ’43 and Nixon look like open books by comparison.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Still, the spinmasters of the Obama regime have maintained that they are “transparent” in their revelations to the American public.
However, years after terrorists murdered our ambassador and three other Americans at our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, those who seek the truth about the dereliction of duty on behalf of our State Department are continually stonewalled and offered nothing in the way of meaningful candor.
To accentuate this fact and, perhaps out of sheer frustration, Congressional bulldog Rep. Darrell Issa shamed the Obama Administration on Tuesday by tweeting what Obama’s “transparency” looks like: pages of blank paper with only a few words.
“Actual picture of a report provided by State Dept. to Benghazi Select Committee. All 15 pages were redacted,” the Republican wrote. Issa is the head of the House’s Benghazi Select Committee.
Though the struggle for the truth has gone on for years, the committee has sought to turn up the heat on the stonewalling administration by threatening to reduce the State Department’s funding by nearly $700 million (roughly 15% of their operational budget) until the “requirements related to proper management of Freedom of Information Act and electronic communications are met.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
