What Truly Amazing Timing


Good news - after years of diligent searching, literally days before he ducks out the door, G.W. finally found his missing emails!
A Justice Department lawyer told a federal judge yesterday that the Bush administration will meet its legal requirement to transfer e-mails to the National Archives after spending more than $10 million to locate 14 million e-mails reported missing four years ago from White House computer files.
This is interesting....
Once the e-mails are transferred to the National Archives, federal law allows them to be requested under the Freedom of Information Act after a five-year interval.
Without digging deeper, I'm not sure: Does this mean Bush has put off disclosure of these potentially embarrassing emails until 2014, where they would otherwise have been open to FOIA requests next year?
