Sunshine and Shadows
Obama's pledge to head the most
transparent administration in history has met with mixed results, a new report finds,
with only 13 of 90 federal agencies taking the "affirmative steps" he
promised to make more information public through the Freedom of
Information Act. The release of the report by George Washington
University's National Security Archive kicks off Sunshine Week, a
national media initiative celebrating the public's right to know.
"Agencies are talking the talk,
but few are yet walking the walk." - Thomas Blanton, director of the National Security Archive.
