This looks more like a cover up than a fight for 'scientific freedom'

Washington Post:
Standoff over government climate study provokes national uproar by scientists

Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) has accused NOAA scientists of altering data and rushing publication of a groundbreaking study, a confrontation that researchers say threatens scientific freedom.
The argument against disclosure is nonsense on stilts.  It only adds to the distrust of government and the feeling that those pushing the global warming agenda are cooking the books and then trying to cover it up.  It is not their data anyway.  It belongs to the government that employees them and Congress has a right and an obligation to look at it.

If this is the best argument they can come up with for suppressing their work product, it raises even more questions about the integrity of their work.  If this is "science" what are they trying to hide?  Have they been colluding with the Obama administration to push his radical global warming agenda?
