TPM: Obama Administration Will Restore Missing Bush White House Emails.
CNN: Millions of White House E-mails Recovered.
NPR: Obama To Produce Millions Of Missing Bush E-Mails To Settle Lawsuit.
"You can't erase e-mails, not today. They've gone through too many servers," said Leahy, D-Vt.
This is a rather silly comment from someone who doesn't really understand how email works.
The only server that matters is the ultimate destination for the email. That said, given that many people read their email exclusively through a browser, and most email clients default to never deleting anything, the most likely default case is that emails sit on the server forever.
On December 18, 2008, Bush IT expert Mike Connell, a highly skilled pilot, was killed in a sudden crash while flying his small aircraft from Washington DC to his Akron/Canton home airport. The cause of the crash is still unknown and under investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board.
The White House in December refused to accept the Environmental Protection Agency’s conclusion that greenhouse gases are pollutants that must be controlled, telling agency officials that an e-mail message containing the document would not be opened, senior E.P.A. officials said last week.
there simply was not enough money to restore all the missing emails
Missing: we hope we deleted them.
Lost: we definitely deleted them.
Found: deleted doesn't mean what we think it means.
