Former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, lifted the curtain a little bit to provide us some insight into the Obama administration. In discussing the process of becoming press secretary for Barack Obama, Gibbs told MSNBC:
“When I went through the process of becoming press secretary, one of the first things they told me was, ‘You’re not even to acknowledge the drone program. You’re not even to discuss that it exists …' I would get a question like that and literally I couldn’t tell you what Major [Garrett] asked, because once I figured out it was about the drone program, I realize I’m not supposed to talk about it.”
That is what we've come to expect from the administration that once claimed it would be the most transparent in history. It is actually instructing its press puppet to literally ignore questions on certain issues, pretending that they don't even exist. How's THAT for transparency?
