The MOTS I refer to now is the Bush administration politicizing the Surgeon General's office. TPM reports that the SG was even discouraged from attending the Special Olympics because the Kennedys are associated with it.
TPM also has a long list of information suppressed by the Bush administration.
On Friday, Justin discovered that the Department of Defense has suddenly classified the numbers of attacks in Iraq for September through November of this year -- after providing the figures for every month since the war began. Why classify the information now? If there's a good explanation, we don't know it, and the Pentagon isn't returning our calls.
As others have noted, it's far from the first time that the administration has tried to deep-six data that was unhelpful to its goals. Over the years, they've discontinued annual reports, classified normally public data, de-funded studies, quieted underlings, and generally done whatever was necessary to keep bad information under wraps.
