Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s assignment of as many as several hundred State Department officials to quickly clear a huge backlog of public records requests is being met with deep skepticism by rank-and-file employees.



While many of the people assigned to open-records duty are lower-level staffers and interns, some have previously held prestigious posts, helping shape U.S. foreign policy and engaging in high-level diplomacy.


Oh cry me a river... good grief.

Most government job descriptions come with the caveat "Performs all other duties as assigned".

Which gets rid of the " It ain't my job" argument.

It would be such a terrible thing to clear a huge backlog.

That quote from Politico is sucha pile.

WAaaah. They are lucky they still have jobs considering some of the great international policies they helped create during the past Administration. Whomever decided it was ok for the Muslim Brotherhood to take over Egypt for example, should be cleaning bathrooms as far as I'm concerned. The further away they are from policy formation, the better.

I am sure a lot of the back log is because of them dragging their feet on Judicial Watch FOIA . Even the FBI is playing the slow game so maybe Sessions can get on their case as well .

Of course they don't like it. Under the most transparent administration of all time they just didn't care about the laws. FOIA has been ignored or marginalized for way too many years.

It's about time.

It is a lot of work to keep things hid and keep shuffling them off. If they quit doing that, they could easily get more of the things done. Maybe it is time to clean house there, especially the people at the top. Seems that the bosses are not being even close to efficient in their government job. I have met people who are at the top of government agencies, they can have a big head and blame everything on their employees while they make things complicated to hide what they want to hide.
