More Hide The Salami...

From the AP (via Josh Marshall's muckraking site), we find that the White House has discovered a nice way to avoid any journalistic scrutiny on who might be visiting the president and when -- removing the "ownership" of WH visitor logs from the Secret Service.

If the logs are Secret Service property, they are subject to Freedom of Information Act requests. If they are considered presidential records, they are immune from FOIA.

This is outrageous. There is no reason why there shouldn't be more public scrutiny on who visits the White House and under what circumstances.

Simple as that.
