Think Progress » White House Claims It Lost RNC Emails “The White House said Wednesday it had mishandled Republican Party-sponsored e-mail accounts used by nearly two dozen presidential aides, resulting in the loss of an undetermined number of e-mails concerning official White House business.” White House spokesman Scott Stanzel “could not say what had been lost, and said the White House is working to recover as many as they can. The White House has now shut off employees’ ability to delete e-mails on the separate accounts, and is briefing staffers on how to better make determinations about when — and when not — to use them, Stanzel said.”
And as one Digg member said: So let me get this straight… All copies off these emails were lost from the RNC host, the senders’ computers, the receives’ computers, the originating servers, the destination servers, every Blackberry and cell phone which received copies, AND the archive system?
So with all the modern governance compliance archiving system out there, the White House managed to loose undelete-able messages from a permanent archive system? Sorry, I must cry Bullshit on this one. Sounds like just criminal activity here.
