What Is Yosi Sergant? -

Here's how Obama-era "transparency" works in practice: A government agency is caught in a scandal. The chairman of the agency issues a statement blaming the scandal on an unnamed "employee," who, the chairman asserts, "has been relieved of his duties." The statement omits the fact that the offending employee still works for the same agency, in the same office, as he did before. When a journalist inquires about this, he is told by a colleague in that very same office--the communications office!--that she knows nothing about his new assignment.

It's hard to imagine government being more evasive and opaque.
