Absolutely and completely outrageous:
"To date, the White House has evaded answering questions about whether it permanently destroyed over 5 million e-mails about issues such as Hurricane Katrina, the firing of United States Attorneys, and the exposure of Valerie Plame's identity as a CIA agent," said Meredith Fuchs, general counsel of the National Security Archive, one of the two parties suing the White House. "This order will force the Executive Office of the President to tell the public whether it really erased key records of the nation's history or whether it has made any effort to preserve the information."
Outrageous and yet no outcry, nothing on the news, Joe Blow in the street continues to have no clue about this. Our government remains malicious in its secrecy, could've broken the law regarding these emails, defies court orders, and yet they refuse to tell the people the truth.

Whatever happened to that "rule of law" stuff, repeated relentlessly and with great disdain during the latter part of the '90s by nearly every Republican on the planet...? Funny how with Bush/Cheney -- an administration that has scoffed at the law on a daily basis, ignoring it and /or violating it at their discretion -- we hear not a peep from the GOP crowd nor the Limbaugh/Hannity/O'Reilly sect of shout-heads.

What if this were Bill Clinton's administration possibly responsible for destroying millions of emails (illegally) that may have had content on many transgressions and/or illegal acts, AND they refused to be honest about it to the American people....? You betcha, we'd never hear the end of the red-faced outrage from the screeching right-wing loon brigade....
