Bush / Cheney claim visitor records 'secret'...

FTA: The Bush administration has changed the rules over record-keeping to prevent access to visitor records. They've usurped the role of the Secret Service, covered by the Freedom of Information Act. Bush / Cheney claim visitor records are under their jurisdiction, thus exempt from FOIA. CREW is not accepting that determination, hence our lawsuits. The Bush administration has changed the rules over record-keeping to prevent access to visitor records. They've usurped the role of the Secret Service, which is covered by the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Instead, Bush and Cheney claim visitor records are under their jurisdiction, thus exempt from FOIA. CREW is not accepting that determination, hence our lawsuits.
