Obama issues “Open Government Directive”


Two quick thoughts about Obama’s directive to make government more accountable.

First, he asked this directive (11 pages total) to be drafted on January 21st, 2009. It’s now December 8, 2009, almost a full year later.

Second, one of the very first items on the directive is the date, which reads “December 8, 2008”. Ummm…isn’t it 2009?

Government…they can’t get the date right, can we expect them to offer true transparency?
