To hide this information, the VA used the "pre-decisional" exemption, simply stating that the requested documents were "preliminary" communications and could thus be withheld. This misapplication was not an isolated incident. Agency use of this b(5) catch-all exemption has skyrocketed to more than 12 percent of all FOIA requests, often to prevent embarrassment or hide errors and failures–ignoring President Obama's clear instructions to the contrary ...
