WHERE IS THE “TRANSPARENCY?”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Feb. 9, 2013) — On December 15, 2012, The Post & Email submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) for an audio or written transcript of a presumed 911 call made to the Metropolitan DC Police Department after then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton suffered a fall and concussion.
On December 17, our request was denied for reasons of “privacy,” despite the fact that Clinton was a public figure in the employ of the people of the United States of America at the time.
On December 22, we submitted an appeal to Mayor Vincent C. Gray’s office as directed in the denial email to which we received no response.
On January 23, we submitted a second email. After receiving no reply, we submitted a third email today, which reads:
Dear Sir or Madam:
On December 15, 2012, I submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to the Metropolitan Police Department for the 911 audio or transcript regarding Hillary Clinton’s concussion. The Metro Police denied my request on December 17, 2012 and stated that any appeals of the decision should be directed to your office by email or standard letter.
I sent an appeal request to your office on December 22, 2012 and again on January 23, 2013 but have received no reply.
FOIA law states that you have 20 working days to respond to a FOIA request: http://www.justice.gov/oip/foia_updates/Vol_XVII_4/page2.htm
Could you please provide me with a reason as to why there has been no response to my request?
Thank you very much.

Clinton was reportedly ill from a stomach flu in early December, after which she allegedly became dehydrated, fell and suffered a concussion. There were no reports of where Clinton might have been treated following the fall until a blood clot was allegedly found in a vein in her head on December 31.
On January 23, Clinton testified to two congressional committees on the attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, which killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to that country. Clinton was described as having worn eyeglasses sometimes worn to assist the eyes in working together following a concussion. A sycophantic media has assumed that she will run for president in 2016.
When asked why the Obama regime had insisted for several weeks that the attack emanated from a spontaneous protest, Clinton exasperatedly responded, “What difference, at this point, does it make?”
Gray was elected in November 2010 and pledged to instill “transparency and good government” in Washington, DC.
