    So Much For Obama ‘Transparency’: Enjoy This Completely Blacked-Out Gov’t Doc On Text Snooping

    This week sure hasn’t looked good for the Obama administration. Scandalous examples of executive overreach, whistleblower suppression, political targeting at “independent agencies,” etc., all fan the flames of discontent with what was promised to be an administration with “unprecedented levels of transparency” and openness.

    Add to that pile the below goofy little FOIA request obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union.

    Curious to know more about the federal government’s warrantless spying on civilians’ private text messages, the indispensable lobbying group submitted a Freedom of Information Act request to the Department of Justice.

    What did they receive?

    15 blacked-out pages of <s>eye-opening information</s> absolutely nothing… with the subject line: “Guidance for the Minimization of Text Messages over Dual-Function Cellular Telephones.”

    Scroll through the document below and prepare to giggle… and then feel slightly sad:
