What Happened to Transparency?
When President Obama took office in 2009, he promised an "unprecedented
level of openness in government." In a
5cbe3028&id=e94fa7007d&e=5617d3d307> memo issued the day after his

confidential merely because public officials might be embarrassed by
disclosure, because errors and failures might be revealed, or because of
speculative or abstract fears."
