More Sunshine in Government
For four years we have been hearing from the left that the Bush Administration is too secretive. We have heard how George Bush has taken away First Amendment Rights when in reality it was the left who took away the free display of religious symbols from society. Today a group of journalist organizations came out with a plea for government openness in what they call the “Sunshine Initiative”:
“National security depends on public trust,” AP President and CEO Tom Curley said. “The trend toward secrecy is the greatest threat to democracy. We must be vigilant at explaining and fighting for accountable government in every jurisdiction.”
I am curious if this would be such a strong concern if the current administration were democrat?
