… the ObamaCraps have been Grossly Abusing the F.O.I.A. System [#”White House equities]…

.. yea , you heard it right ..

.. those ” equities ” come from a memo that came from the ObamaCrap White House in April of 2009 . They have inserted what are called ” White House equities ” into the FOIA request process . The question is is whether what they have done is legal or not ? …

.. to be honest , NO !! ..

.. the White House has a right to beef about FOIA request that are made to the White House itself . Making those requests of the Agencies of the Executive Branch is one thing . Making them of the White House itself is something else . So , at that point , then they can object …

.. but with ” White House equities ” involving itself in the actions at the Agencies ? Un – uh . Those FOIA requests are to be evaluated at the agency itself , not at the White House . It was not the way the FOIA request system was intended to work . It was also not the way that it was put together to operate …

.. so , somebody with a FOIA request should challenge this , and pursue this in court . The judgement of a federal district court judge should interject an interesting element into this now – bastardized process ..

.. except now that the AP is getting pissed , and they have sued under the F.O.I.A. doctrine . With the beefed – up legal doctirine that FOIA has , State must move , and move mush faster ..

.. they had better . The case is now before a federal district judge , and the AP drew a hard case , Richard Leon , a Dubya appointee . Leon is pissed at the State Department , and is taking no crap . He has them on tight deadlines , and will brook no excuses …
