The Ottawa Citizen reports that Gordon O'Connor's Defence Department is continuing to thumb its nose at accountability and oversight, this time by trying to stall access requests for documents which have already been made public.

The theory is apparently to try to screen and limit the release of any potentially embarrassing information which wasn't caught the first time. But aside from the fact that "potentially embarrassing" isn't a valid basis for refusing to disclose information, is there really any point to trying to limit embarrassment within a department stuck with O'Connor as its public face?
