After nearly three years of suing, two organizations have won a settlement that allows for the release of "lost" White House emails from 2003, 2004 and 2005. (Apparently some interesting things were being discussed in the White House back then.)
Technology to the rescue…
Computer technicians have recovered about 22 million Bush administration e-mails that the Bush White House had said were missing, two watchdog groups that sued over the documents announced Monday.
The e-mails date from 2003 to 2005, and had been "mislabeled and effectively lost," according to the National Security Archive, a research group based at George Washington University. But Melanie Sloan, executive director of the liberal-leaning Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), said it could be years before most of the e-mails are made public.
I'm sure eventually we'll find out how many times President Bush fell for that Nigerian prince's little scam.
