Fantastic Freedom Of Information

The Clinton Administration and it’s fundament were much mocked for their “parsing” of facts. The current administration is more straightforward: they strive to keep facts from intruding on argument altogether.

In service of this noble cause they’ve gotten a federal judge to agree that the White House Office of Administration is not covered by the Freedom Of Information Act. This matters because the OA is at the center of the enduring mystery of the Bush Administration’s missing 5 million emails. Seemingly endless litigation has pried some information on the White House’s sabotage of adequate presidential paper preservation, but if the OA can’t be asked what documents it lost and when it lost them the picture may remain incomplete.
