Our ever-watchful ChangeTracker tool spied a flurry of activity at whitehouse.gov yesterday – the administration updated more than two dozen web pages. Changes included some sweeping edits and complete rewrites to "The Agenda" area of the site, now renamed as "Issues."
A few specific changes we noticed:
- The Iraq page was deleted and replaced with a single paragraph on the foreign policy page.
- Like many issues pages the civil rights page was dramatically cut. 756 words devoted to supporting the LGBT community have been replaced with two sentences.
- And nearly all issues pages now begin with a mini-progress report detailing what President Obama has done for you.
