57 percent doubt Obama’s transparency claims

On his first day in office President Obama promised a new era in open government. Most people don’t think he delivered, accrding to a Reason.com poll.


  1. Jonathan says:

    Obama is no friend of transparency. Snowden embarrasses him, and his response is to appoint a commission on NSA reform and to meet with high-tech execs. Pure window dressing.

    I believe he will do nothing to advance the research into JFK’s assassination. Any such move would buy him only a little support and lots of opposition.

  2. Nathaniel Heidenheimer says:

    Tomorrow is the 50th anniversary of the Dulles-Truman Show at the Washington post. Ithink it is well worth a posting about it from Jefferson. The Post story shows the wide, National Security State aspects of the assassination in a clear and profound way. http://www.consortiumnews.com/2009/122909b.html

  3. Melvin Fromme says:

    One of the disadvantages of living to an older age is seeing politician after politician build up the public’s hopes with promises that turn out to be worthless. I liken Jeff Morley’s JFK historical transparency efforts to the man & his crew that relentlessly searched for the Titanic & eventually found it on the ocean floor. Politicians are notorious for worthless promises; people on determined missions are quite often successful in their quests. Mr. Morley is obviously a better choice for having faith in releasing our censored history.

  4. Bill Kelly says:

    There is a bipartisan transparency caucus in congress whose members should be identified and urged to support congressional oversight of JFK act
