Obama Administration Hiding Travel Costs

The Internet news source WND has an interesting article on the travels of Barack Obama and family. There are many questions left unanswered regarding the cost to taxpayers for Obama vacations, official travel, and pseudo-official excursions.


 Here’s an excerpt from the WND piece that shows you just how difficult it is to get such information out of the Obama Administration.

“Indeed, WND has been waiting more than a year and a half for the State Department to reveal details of a mysterious stay at the super-luxurious Hotel Hessischer Hof in Frankfurt, Germany. 

Although State on Nov. 17, 2011, had uploaded to the FedBizOpps database a contract awarded to the hotel for $52,000, it released no details explaining the contract. State acknowledged receiving the Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA, request, but otherwise has remained silent on the matter. 

It remains unclear who may have stayed at the luxury hotel, as the award date is not necessarily indicative of when the government actually used the facility.”
