“Most Transparent Administration in History” To Scrap Executive Office FOIA Requirements

Faux Nobel Peace Prize President
Political actors are paid to deceive; campaigns are funded deceptions; political parties are “The technique of infamy”, invented lies to get people arguing heatedly over which one of them is true. See Ezra Pound
Another Grand Lie Burns!
Obama’s false claims and deceptive campaign promises of becoming the most transparent government in history, faces the evidence of not revealing government documents upon request, criminalizing dissent and whistleblowers.
Mass deception and secrecy to fund and foment wars… ~Ron
political-inconvenience-white-house-exempts-itself-from-foia-regulationsThe White House is expected to announce the removal of a federal regulation that allows the public to obtain information from one of its administrative offices.

In a notice to be published in the Federal Register on Tuesday, March 17, the White House says the move to exempt the Office of Administration from the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is consistent with a court ruling issued by a federal appeals court in 2008, which ruled that the Office of Administration, under the Executive Office of the President, is not subject to FOIA because it “performs only operational and administrative tasks in support of the president and his staff” and “lacks substantial independent authority.” […Read More]

Most Transparent Administration in History To Scrap Executive Office FOIA Requirements

More from The Hill:

The White House on Tuesday will announce new rules exempting an administrative office from subjection to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which allows citizens to obtain government documents from federal agencies.

In a Federal Register notice scheduled to publish Tuesday morning, the action to exempt the Office of Administration is listed as a final rule, which means there will be no opportunity for public comment.

While much of White House operations are not subject to FOIA laws and regulations – including the president, vice president and immediate advisors – one of its largest offices, the Executive Office of the President, must hand over certain documents when requested.

The Executive Office of the President is headed by the president’s White House chief of staff and includes the Office of Management and Budget and the Council of Economic Advisors.

The Office of Administration is also within the Executive Office of the President – and complied with FOIA requests for years – but stopped doing so during the Bush administration.

Stripping themselves from basic FOIA requests without allowing the public to comment.
The White House is using the argument that because the Executive Office isn’t technically an agency, it isn’t subject to FOIA. A court ruling has determined the same and uses the Bush administration’s decision to stop fulfilling FOIA requests as precedent. That isn’t the point. Regardless of whether the Executive Office is an “agency,” based on President Obama’s transparency promise, the Office should be open to fulfilling FOIA requests. Further, Obama pledged to be different than the Bush administration in terms of government transparency. The opposite has happened.  […Read more]

    Yvonne Selke’s death & NGA secrecy

    Posted Mar 25, 2015
    Yvonne worked with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, the Pentagon’s satellite mapping office, according to a person close to the family.
    Yvonne Selke performed work under contract with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, the Pentagon’s satellite mapping office, Booz Allen and the Defense Department confirmed in statements after the AP had reported her identity and employment.

    The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) delivers world-class geospatial intelligence that provides a decisive advantage to policymakers, warfighters, intelligence professionals and first responders.
    Anyone who sails a U.S. ship, flies a U.S. aircraft, makes national policy decisions, fights wars, locates targets, responds to natural disasters, or even navigates with a cellphone relies on NGA.

    NGA enables all of these critical actions and shapes decisions that impact our world through the indispensable discipline of geospatial intelligence (GEOINT).

    NGA is a unique combination of intelligence agency and combat support agency. It is the world leader in timely, relevant, accurate and actionable GEOINT. NGA enables the U.S. intelligence community and the Department of Defense (DOD) to fulfill the president’s national security priorities to protect the nation. NGA also anticipates its partners’ future needs and advances the GEOINT discipline to meet them.

    NGA is the lead federal agency for GEOINT and manages a global consortium of more than 400 commercial and government relationships. The director of NGA serves as the functional manager for GEOINT, the head of the National System for Geospatial Intelligence (NSG) and the coordinator of the global Allied System for Geospatial Intelligence (ASG). In its multiple roles, NGA receives guidance and oversight from DOD, the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) and Congress.

    NGA is headquartered in Springfield, Va. and has two major locations in St. Louis and Arnold, Mo. Hundreds of NGA employees serve on support teams at U.S. military, diplomatic and allied locations around the world.
