Obama declares end to government secrecy President Barack Obama boldly proclaimed recently that "Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency." And then, adding substance to the rhetoric, the president took two important steps in the right direction. He repealed a 2001 executive order granting former presidents and vice presidents the ability to keep documents secret beyond the 12 years allowed by law, and rescinded a Bush administration directive encouraging agencies to withhold records under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
