Who can access the White House visitor logs?

Approximately 70,000 to 100,000 people visit the White House each month. In December 2009, the White House began posting online all its visitor records as early as September 15, 2009. As President Obama's "commitment to government transparency" under the new voluntary disclosure policy, records are now viewable to the public on an ongoing basis here. Each record, posted 90 to 120 days after the visit, consists of the person's full name, the date and time they arrived and left and the person they visited. There are a couple exceptions to the policy, which include personal guests of the Obama family and those visiting for particularly sensitive meetings. Some deem the latter exception as too broad of a statement. The new rule also "settles four lawsuits against the government seeking such records," according to a New York Times article. As of October 2010, there are more than 800,000 White House visitor records posted online.
