The daily STEW (Star-Telegram Editorial Writers): For five years the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence has been trying to get more than 9,000 top-secret documents from the White House regarding the now-defunct CIA detention and interrogation program. The White House won’t give. Who’s going to win this high-stakes standoff?
The White House will win. Because it’s lawless. Lesley Hensell Demond
Hopefully and prayerfully, We The People. James Edward Johnson
Are people really surprised by this Obama? What’s he hiding? This the the Senate committee that is supposed to provide the checks and balances in our government. South Guy
Never miss a local story.
South Guy, the documents are from the Bush era. Do you conservatives understand math? Michael Phillips
If the documents are from Bush era (and I agree that most are), then it would make sense for Obama to release them. He has blamed everything bad on Bush, so now would be a chance for him to prove it. Release the documents! Gerald Mercer
This administration feels the need to keep everything secret, from their spying on U.S. citizens, to the murder of Americans at Benghazi, to the use of the IRS to suppress the vote in 2012. I remember that when he originally ran, Obama claimed this would be “the most transparent administration in history.” Turns out that was another lie. Joseph Spurlock
