Ten Million Emails "Lost"

It's shocking, but there it is. Worse than we thought. Instead of a paltry five million White House emails gone missing, now the total is over ten million.

Conveniently, the dates of the vanished emails include the period of March 2003 through October 2005 -- which encompasses the period of time from start of the Iraq War Illegal Occupation to the Hurricane Katrina aftermath.

Coincidence? I don't think so.

Tricky Dick was brought down over an 18.5 minute gap in a tape recording. This goes so far beyond that meager gap that "exponential" can't come close to describing it.

What we have here is a series of patent violations of the Presidential Records Act of 1978. And once again, the lawless and cynical BFEE will probably get away with it.

US Rep Henry Waxman (D--Naturally), along with the staff of CREW, are still doggedly pursuing the White House to produce these missing emails. I used to work in IT, so I know that nothing erased from a computer -- especially emails -- is gone forever. What with multiple backup systems and forensic hard disk tools, the emails are still there somewhere.

In the meantime, read the Crew report Without a Trace: The Story of the Missing White House Emails and the Violation of the Presidential Records Act.

How many more crimes can these fuckers get away with before America is finally fed up?

no doubt, give the Hard drives to the CIA or a 12 year old and they can get the data off of erased or destroyed drives. We used DOD standard wipe utility that wrote zeros 32 times to each block of the hard drive. That makes it basically impossible for non government people to read it. So if the HD from the email server is still there you can get it back.

Besides there are all the points the data traveled through etc.

You are so right!
