Michelle Malkin » Where’s the transparency on Gitmo?

gitmo-300x224More Obama transparency?

From GOP Rep. Pete Hoekstra’s office, a demand for transparency from the Obama administration on its Gitmo relocation plans:

[Hoekstra,] the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, used a rare, open hearing of a House Intelligence Subcommittee to highlight the fact that nine months to the day after President Barack Obama signed an Executive Order to close Guantanamo Bay, the administration still has not presented a plan and is avoiding transparency with Congress.

“The National Security Act requires that Congress be kept fully and currently informed, but when it comes to Guantanamo Bay, the administration is doing anything but that,” Hoekstra said. “We have asked questions, sent letters and requested briefings, but this committee has received nothing in the way of meaningful answers. The administration’s lack of transparency with Congress and the American people on this critical national security issue has been absolutely shocking, so we had little choice but to use this hearing to speak out.”
