“Does this represent a shift in Mr. Obama’s position on Iraq?” said Brian Wise, executive director of Military Families United, which advocates for finishing the military mission in Iraq.

Grover Norquist, president of conservative activist group Americans for Tax Reform, blasted Mr. Obama for deleting the agenda.

“This is the opposite of transparency,” he said. His organization posted to its Web site, www.atr.org, a scanned copy of a printout of the “Economy” section of Mr. Obama’s agenda.

Change.gov still contains pages about how to apply for jobs in the Obama administration, biographies of top transition team members and a call for Americans to serve as volunteers and for students to perform 50 hours of community service. The site also has press releases and a transition blog.
