"Given all of this, reporter Charlie Savage of the NY Times filed a Freedom of Information Act request to find out the federal government’s interpretation of its own law… and had it refused. According to the federal government, its own interpretation of the law is classified. What sort of democracy are we living in when the government can refuse to even say how it’s interpreting its own law? That’s not democracy at all. "
Talk about anti-democratic. If there’s one thing we should all be able to agree on it’s that we the people are entitled to know how the government is interpreting and implementing the law.
