Paging Woodward and Bernstein

PAGING WOODWARD AND BERNSTEIN….Patrick Fitzgerald, in a letter to Scooter Libby’s lawyers, makes this bland assertion:

We have learned that not all email of the Office of Vice President and the Executive Office of President for certain time periods in 2003 was preserved through the normal archiving process on the White House computer system.

Missing emails from both the VP’s office and the president’s office? For “certain periods in 2003”? That certainly deserves some followup, doesn’t it?
