KEEPING WITH HIS TRANSPARENCY.....

The Obama administration refuses to release information about the costs for Camp 7 (where the so-called High Value detainees are quartered). Read about the refusal here.

One thing I will note from this article- at least the government seems to understand the stigma that comes with being involved in Guantanamo related matters on the government side....but people choose their work and they could have followed Nancy Reagan's advice and just said no....

And of course using every opportunity they can to talk in private with judges they filed an ex-parte (a filing between the government and the judge) filing explaining why it would be so detrimental to the government to disclose this one page document. Something to do with the stigma that would surround the employee(s) working on these matters. haha they should have thought about that a long time ago--. Unfortunately the judge will probably just go along with whatever the government wants, that is what the judges do in the Guantanamo cases- when they bother to do anything.
