Recently Julie Gerberding, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) testified before the Senate Committee on the Environment and Public Works. Her testimony was heavily edited by the White House and other Executive Branch Agencies. Here is a link to a copy of teh full document, with the sections excised highlighted in yellow.

Original Copy with excised material.

Some of the comments excised are absolutely amazing. For example "Catastrophic weather events such as heat waves and hurricanes are expected to become more frequent, severe, and costly; the U.S. population is anticipated to continue to age and move to vulnerable locations such as coastal areas, increasing exposures to specific risks; and concurrent challenges such as water scarcity in certain regions could limit our resilience." was cut out.

Is there any excuse for excising such material?

Re: Where to place the thread
Preferably in the "more lies from the worst administration (excluding Reagan) in history", but I don't think we have that category.

So may be In the News or Coffeehouse.

Worthless topic title
When I saw the topic title I assumed it had something to do with editing messages in . That assumption was a bit off.

How about editing the topic title to something with enough information that it actually represents the topic theme?
