Comment not bugs, features! (Score 1) 150

The Bush administration has run a very secretive government--pulling public info off websites, classifying embarrassing info, refusing and stalling in response to requests. So I view this not as back room engineering changes, but as a plan to control the information the federal agencies release to the public, with the goals of restricting and filtering out many things now public.
If you look at it this way, many of the drawbacks of the plan (if the goal was to provide info to the public) become features.
