FOIA and the White House

FOIA AND THE WHITE HOUSE….ABC’s The Note has a cryptic reference today to “a strange transfer of FOIA authority to the White House.” This item is apparently related to Freedom of Information requests made as part of the National Guard story, but it’s not clear how. Neither a Google search nor a Lexis search turned up anything relevant.

Does anyone have any idea what they’re talking about?
