I guess he's changing his mind already. I'm not a conspiratorial guy, but this whole thing almost looks like a plot to get everybody excited about the country's future and then send them back into deeper recesses of crushing apathy. Good one, O.
In one of his first acts as president, Obama signed a memo saying FOIA "should be administered with a clear presumption: In the face of doubt, openness prevails. The government should not keep information confidential merely because public officials might be embarrassed by disclosure."
EDIT (9/10/09): From now on, I'll try not to report on redundant articles regarding Obama failing miserably to live up to his high promises of change and honorable government. Suffice it to say that anybody who checks the news will see why it's largely business as usual for this administration in spite of initial lofty ideals.
