Transparency and the Coast Guard

Oh, oh. I found it hard to believe the Coast Guard was being accused by a member of Congress of not being transparent enough.
Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairwoman Susan Collins, R-Maine, said Wednesday the Homeland Security Department's recent report on the Coast Guard's $20 billion Integrated Deepwater Program does not allow enough transparency, accountability or predictability in the years ahead for its recapitalization effort.
Would we expect anything else? Transparency has never been a value we actually even pretend to live up to.
