15 months for four blank pages

Patrick Richardson and Richard Pollock submitted a Freedom of Information Act request to the Air Force in December 2009 asking for some routine information. After the United Nations Climate Change Conference 2009 in Copenhagen, Pollock sought to discover who was on the Air Force flights to Copenhagen — including Air Force One. And he wanted to know how much taxpayer money was spent flying these people back and forth, how much baggage, and so on, all “pretty innocuous stuff.”
“Fast forward 15 months,” Richardson reports, Pollock “finally got a response — four blank pages.” There must be a story there somewhere, buried deep within the most transparent administration in history.
