For The Obama Adminstration, Everything Is About Politics

From the AP, courtesy of the gang at Ace of Spades:

“For at least a year, the Homeland Security Department detoured hundreds of requests for federal records to senior political advisers for highly unusual scrutiny, probing for information about the requesters and delaying disclosures deemed too politically sensitive, according to nearly 1,000 pages of internal e-mails obtained by The Associated Press.”  And “[i]f a member of Congress sought such documents, employees were told to specify Democrat or Republican.”

This reminds me of the pictures of the White House strategy sessions regarding the Afghanistan conflict.  Unlike prior administrations confronted with important matters of national security, the Obama political advisors were always present.
