    I'd be secretive too if there was an entire industry built around making up sh** around everything I did.

    Multiple journalists have come out and said very similar things. This White House is incredibly political and the transparency Obama talked about early on was nothing more than an empty campaign promise.

    Uh, yes? The story is original content & interview from Al Jazeera. You do know that, right? That Al Jazeera is - in fact - the source of the story?
