Veal Pen Watch: lapdog NGO with ties to administration gives Obama transparency award; Obama uses award to deflect criticism of his record
A new Politico article recaps how the lofty promise of being the “most open and transparent [administration] in history” has been broken into a million little pieces, leaving behind a secretive, litigious, tribal government that would make Dick Cheney blush.
Where the veal pen aspect comes in is that last year, the Project on Government Oversight and other Soros and Carnegie-funded NGOs gave Obama a “transparency award,” behind closed doors no less. This caused considerable strife in the whistleblower community, which POGO’s Executive Director, Danielle Brian, brushed aside in a heavy-handed manner.
Now guess who is pointing to that award to deflect criticism of his record…
Well done, POGO.
