Obama’s 'Agenda' Disappears From

 We noted Friday that President-elect Barack Obama’s transition Web site,, included pages describing how he will use technology to increase public participation in government and provide more information to the public.

But sometime over the weekend, those pages went away. All that remains on the Agenda portion of the transition team’s site is a two-paragraph overview of what the agenda will include:

President-Elect Obama and Vice President-Elect Biden have developed innovative approaches to challenge the status quo in Washington and to bring about the kind of change America needs.

The principal priorities of the Obama Administration include: a plan to revive the economy, to fix our health care, education, and social security systems, to define a clear path to energy independence, to end the war in Iraq responsibly and finish our mission in Afghanistan, and to work with our allies to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, among many other domestic and foreign policy objectives.

If you go directly to the twopages we linked to last week, you get the message: "Not Found: The page you requested is not available right now." (Here are cached versions of thepages.)

Also now gone are pages outlining how the new administration plans to revitalize the economy, end the war in Iraq and provide healthcare to all.

Snapshots of some of the pages are on the site

We’ve asked the transition team why the pages were taken down and will post an update once we have more information.
