Still... it shouldn't take the threat of a fvckin lawsuit to tell us who visited the White House! Not for this, anyway!
Mac: Not quite:  
 
WHITE HOUSE RESPONSE TO CREW SUIT FOR HEALTH CARE EXECS VISITOR RECORDS INSUFFICIENT  
 
While Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) is pleased the White House has taken a step towards delivering the transparency promised in the first days of the administration, the letter sent by White House Counsel Greg Craig in no way satisfies CREW’s June 22nd Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for the Secret Service visitor records of 18 health care executives. First, the FOIA requires the administration to release the records themselves, not merely a summary of some information included in the records. The actual visitor records likely would indicate with whom each official met, the administration official who requested clearance for the visitor, the time of the meeting, the duration of the meeting and, in some cases, the purpose of the meeting. In addition, no information was provided regarding any visits to the vice president’s residence. Mr. Craig’s summary is not an adequate substitution for the records themselves.
Hugh2d2: Goramit. I want to see the change. I really do. But this shit is pissing me off.
