Barack Obama made a big deal during his presidential campaign about how his administration will be the most transparent in history. Then why is his Justice Department making Freedom of Information requests all that much more difficult?

Obama's Department of Justice has proposed a new set of rules for how the agency fills Freedom of Information Act Requests. If adopted, the rules will be a huge step back for transparency. They're worse than you think.
