‘Transparency’ Is Flexible
State Dep’t says being “transparent” can mean whatever they want it to.
State Department Deputy Press Secretary Marie Harf: “[T]his administration has taken steps to increase the transparency. Not as much as, I’m sure, everybody would like in this room, but certainly whether it’s the president giving speeches about counterterrorism, giving speeches just recently about our intelligence gathering and how we’re reviewing that, we’ve actually taken steps to be more transparent both to our people but to other countries around the world. … I think we can use whatever definition of ‘transparent’ we want.”
