The Document Stonewall Begins

Deconstructing Obama: The Life, Loves, and Letters of America's First Postmodern President

Republicans now control House committees and the power to conduct oversight of the Obama administration. They have began requesting documents from President Obama, but it looks like his original long-form birth certificate isn't the only document he is going to stonewall access to.
(Daily Caller)- Further, Issa charges that top DHS officials actually instructed career employees not to search for the documents he is requesting.

“I was disappointed to learn that on or about Jan. 20, 2011, DHS’s Office of General Counsel instructed career staff in the Privacy Office not to search for documents responsive to my request,” Issa says in the Feb. 1 letter.

Issa is requesting documents from DHS about political interference with Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to the agency.
