It's becoming more clear that the Obama Administration may be one of the most disingenuous and  corrupt administrations of the modern era. From the Fast and Furious fiasco and subsequent collusion with the liberal media outlets at Eric Holder's Department of Justice to Solyndra where a half billion dollars of taxpayer money went down the drain. Now comes the revelation that Janet Napolitano head of Homeland Security does not use e-mail. Tim Cavanaugh at Reason magazine is spot on with this quote:

"It's Cute That Janet Napolitano Avoids Email So Nobody Can Catch Her Breaking the Law" 

Cavanaugh goes on:

"When asked for an explanation for that perverse habit, Napolitano said, "For a whole host of reasons." 

Washington Examiner Executive Editor Mark Tapscott describes what some of those reasons might be in an article about Christopher C. Horner's new book The Liberal War on Transparency 

* While working as deputy White House chief of staff, President Obama's current campaign manager, Jim Messina, used his AOL account to orchestrate the controversial deal by which drug companies lobbied for and ran ads supporting passage of Obamacare, which was just one example in a government-wide trend.

* Political appointees at another federal agency who found a clever way to not only use private email accounts but to rig the system automatically to remove all traces of them from government servers.

* The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency created secret email accounts that few there knew about and no one apparently can now access, according to an internal document, thus calling into question EPA's compliance with certain laws and lawsuits.

It's pretty clear the Obama Administration talked about transparency but the reality is they are more interested in doing things behind closed doors and  hiding things. In the case of Janet Napolitano it appears she's making sure there is no email trail for her to be questioned on:

Looks like she and others in the Obama administration are making sure they are able to cover their tracks and are able to say "I don't recall" once they are brought before congressional investigators.
