Wikicountability.org: Keeping Presidents accountable

According to CBS News:
Crossroads GPS, the cash-rich Republican outside group planning to spend $120 million on the 2012 election in conjunction with its sister organization American Crossroads, announced Wednesday the launch of a website called www.Wikicountability.org "designed to crowd-source information gleaned from Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and other public documents by organizations, individuals and journalists."
According to Wikicountability, "It is Wikicountability’s policy not to solicit or knowingly accept for publication documents which disclose information that is classified, legally privileged or subject to the established statutory exceptions under FOIA."

I think this is a great idea--not only for the Obama administration but also for future Republican administrations as well.
