You gonna buy this?

The Baculum King at Daily Kos brings us this news:
WASHINGTON - Older White House computer hard drives have been destroyed, the White House disclosed to a federal court Friday in a controversy over millions of possibly missing e-mails from 2003 to 2005.

The White House revealed new information about how it handles its computers in an effort to persuade a federal magistrate it would be fruitless to undertake an e-mail recovery plan that the court proposed.


It would be costly and time-consuming for the White House to institute an e-mail retrieval program that entails pulling data off each individual workstation, the court papers filed Friday state.

He adds a comment:
This from the Administration that brought you Iraq and pissed away billions on poisonous house trailers...

Plus that he doesn't believe a word of it. Neither, of course, do I.

Won't anyone hold these criminals accountable?

Neither do I believe a word of it, Paul. Perhaps when they're out of office, they'll be held accountable, but I doubt that, too.

Ah, Mimi, you and are a great pair of cynics! And with very good reason.

From Buddhism I try to learn the lesson of engagement for the sake of the right but detachment from the outcome.

Um, does this remind anybody of a certain gap on a certain tape of Richad Nixon's? Godde, I am getting old.
