Yes, this is my 400th post. Woohoo!
If anyone tries to convince you that the White House "lost" a grip of emails, they're full of it. There are *so* many places that you can find them, it would take a seriously concerted effort to not be able to produce them. So every single Blackberry held by staff who were included on the emails was wiped clean (possible, since those devices can only hold so much data). Every single computer's hard drive in use by the department would have to be wiped clean, then have the "blank space" where the deleted files used to reside overwritten by random 1's and 0's.
And even then, forensic experts would still have a high probability of recovery.
Every email server used by the department would have to have somehow erased all accessed storage. I can see this if BushCo is also installing their own IT folk in a similar fashion to installing their own attorneys.
Oh, and every backup tape made would have to be unreadable. This includes tapes stored offsite as well as onsite backups.
This administration's history of lying has made us apathetic towards their B.S. claims. Do we even care anymore, or are we just counting off the days until we can close the book on these morons? Lying was an impeachable offense under Clinton, but it's standard operating procedure for these guys.
