Not so much freedom of information

Posted By on Thu, Nov 1, 2007 at 5:45 AM



The Washington Post fact-checker reviews the issue of fault in the slow trickle of records released from the Clinton archives under FOI requests. Conclusion: there's blame to be placed all around -- on cumbersome Bush rules and slow response by Clinton officials (Bruce Lindsey is reading, page by page, the material being produced before it is passed on to the White House for final review). Given the impediments on release created by Bush rules, it would seem the better course for the Clintons is to speed things on their end to the extent possible. Precious little -- even presuming the material is valuable to political opponents -- is going to reach the public expeditiously under the best of circumstances.
