UNDER THE CUSHIONS? IN AN OLD SHOE CLOSET?….A few weeks ago Patrick Fitzgerald revealed that a bunch of email from Vice President Dick Cheney’s office had mysteriously disappeared. Apparently the White House decided to look a little harder for it:
[Scooter Libby’s] defense was told that the White House had recently located and turned over about 250 pages of e-mails from the vice president’s office. Fitzgerald, in a letter last month to the defense, had cautioned Libby’s lawyers that some e-mails might be missing because the White House’s archiving system had failed.
Generally speaking, the document management systems used to archive email are pretty straightforward to use. I’d sure love to hear an explanation of how these emails were “lost” and then “recovered” again.
