Carter Wants Transparency
Jimmy Carter, easily the worst President in recent history, continues to abuse his unpresidented attacks on current administrations. To make matters worse, the peanut farmer is questioning his own Commander in Chief during wartime. Carter, in his WaPo editorial, says that the US ""created 81 percent more "secrets" in 2005 than in 2000"".
Jimmy, if these are "secrets", then how do you know how many of them there are? Jimmy sites OpenTheGovernment.org as his only source and only hints at the nature of the inquisitions. At no time would Jimmy mention we are at war, he does however, accuse the US of being more secretive than developing nations.
""Nearly 70 countries have passed legislation to ensure the right to request and receive public documents, the vast majority in the past decade and many in middle- and low-income nations. While the United States retreats, the international trend toward transparency grows, with laws often more comprehensive and effective than our own.""
By all means Mr Carter, feel free to immigrate to a more transparent country , we don't want to upset you. One would think that the man who ordered a secret rescue mission to save the hostages during the Iranian hostage crisis would understand the need for secrets during wartime. But I suppose a wiser Jimmy would support the troops while in harm's way and keep his single term, misery index Presidency a tight secret.
