Freedom Watch Says Obama’s Promise of Transparency Really Only Partial Promise, Partial Transparency — “Worse Than Bush”

Freedom Watch founder Larry Klayman said this afternoon that “President Obama is worse than President Bush” and the Obama Administration’s promise of transparency “Is really only selective transparency.”

“They released the records of the Gitmo interrogations but they refused to releases the photo of Air Force Once over New York until forced to do so now,” Klayman said.

The photo of Air Force One over New York, released today by the White House, was made public because Klaman submitted a Freedom of Information request to the government.

Klayman, who has gone to court a number of times in his fights with government officials, questions an administration that “thinks It OK to release “Torture documents” from the past administration but won’t account for its own actions — his words.

“”President Obama thinks it “cool” to release national intelligence documents concerning American intelligence gathering techniques of terrorists,” Klayman suggests, “but ironically terrorizes the people of Manhattan, who have the tragedy of September 11 emblazoned in their emotional psyches, but then refuses to release benign video of his own incompetence and lack of national security common sense.”

Earlier Klayman insisted that his Freedom Watch “will not rest until the truth about this episode is fully exposed.”

The man Obama picked to run the White House Office of Military Liaison, Louis Caldera, was a civilian.  He resigned today.  Most former presidents have had a military officer in this job.

The White House asked Mr. Louis Caldera why he scheduled the New York fly-over without informing the right people.

“When asked why he failed to do so, he did not offer a coherent explanation. He stated that it was not a conscious decision — he did not intend not to notify them,” it said. “Instead, he suggested that it may have been an oversight.”

OOPS!

George W. Bush White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said, “This will not go away.  It is President Obama’s.”
