Dual gov't? US operates in sunshine and in shadow
FILE - In this Jan. 21, 2009, file photo President Barack Obama speaks to his senior staff to assert his expectations on ethics and conduct on the White House campus in Washington. Promising to reinvigorate the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), Obama, issued an executive order his first day in office, and told all federal agencies to adopt a "presumption in favor of disclosure". A 2011 review of the administration's handling of public records requests under FOIA came to a jarring conclusion when actions were measured against words: "Most indicators of openness have not even returned to the average for the Bush years, a period known for secrecy." The report was by OMB Watch, now called the Center for Effective Government. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)
