Keeping it secret

A few of Obama's decisions to protect us:
  • Of the 10 cases of people charged under the 1917 Espionage Act in U.S. history, the Obama administration is responsible for seven of them.
  • Under Obama, whistleblowers face a total of 751 months behind bars — compared to 24 months for all other whistleblowers combined since the American Revolution.
  • 76.7 million documents were classified in 2010, compared with 8.6 million in 2001 and 23.4 million in 2008, the first and last years of George W. Bush’s administration.
  • The budget for non-military intelligence agencies has gone from $50.4 billion in 2015 to a proposed $53.9 billion for 2016.
