The Bush administration is stonewalling efforts to find its public emails - SendMeRSS

CREW, a public advocacy organization, was interviewed on January 17, 2008 by Aimee Allison of KPFA San Francisco about the current scandal of missing emails of the Bush administration. According to a January 16, 2008 CREW post,

The deletion of millions of email beginning in March 2003 coupled with the White House's destruction of back-up copies of those deleted email mean that there are no back-up copies of emails deleted during the period March 2003 through October 2003. The significance of this time-period cannot be overstated: the U.S. went to war with Iraq, top White House officials leaked the covert identity of Valerie Plame Wilson and the Justice Department opened a criminal investigation into their actions.

Lawsuits by CREW and others against the administration in pursuit of any backup copies during the time George W Bush has been in office are ongoing.
