President Barack Obama met secretly with former President Bill Clinton in the Oval Office May 1 — a meeting revealed to the public months later by a photo released by Pete Souza, the official White House photographer.

The meeting wasn’t put on the president’s public schedule, and the White House hasn’t issued a readout.

It was actually the second secret meeting Obama had with a Clinton in May. Later that month, Obama had a secret lunch with Hillary Clinton, as revealed by a Tweet from People magazine.

At the time, then-White House Press Secretary Jay Carney defended Obama’s ability to keep the public in the dark about his meetings with prominent people.

This reporter had been the pool reporter on duty and lodged a protest with Carney about the lack of transparency.

I’ve asked the White House to comment on why the public was not told of this meeting prior to the release of Souza’s picture, which appears to have been on July 11. That’s when Souza tweeted out photos for May and reporters noticed the picture.

I’ve also asked what Clinton and Obama discussed.

    In their reactionary war against civilization, today’s liberals use three main attack vectors:-Attacking the family-Attacking private property-Attacking Christianity
