Obama White House can’t find – or won’t release – millions of Bush emails
President Barack Obama has a problem. In February, the Obama administration, siding with former President George W. Bush, tried to kill a lawsuit that sought to recover what could be millions of missing White House e-mails in a stunning reversal of Obama’s rhetoric about Bush secrecy on the campaign trail.
Two advocacy groups had sued the Executive Office of the President, including one of the groups that helped derail former House Speaker Tom DeLay. They said that large amounts of White House e-mail documenting Bush’s eight years in office were missing, and that the government needed to undertake an extensive recovery effort. The emails were seen as crucial as the “deleted” days include ones in the run up to the Iraq war and the outing of covert CIA officer Valerie Plame Wilson.
