Emails

george-wPeople are up in arms about Hillary’s emails.  But who knows about George W losing 22 million emails?

In court in May 2008, administration lawyers contended that the White House had lost three months’ worth of email backups from the initial days of the Iraq War. Bush aides thus evaded a court-ordered deadline to describe the contents of digital backup believed to contain emails deleted in 2003 between March—when the U.S. invaded Iraq—and September. They also refused to give the NSA nonprofit any emails relating to the Iraq War, despite the PRA, blaming a system upgrade that had deleted up to 5 million emails. The plaintiffs eventually contended that the Bush administration knew about the problem in 2005 but did nothing to fix it.

Eventually, the Bush White House admitted it had lost 22 million emails, not 5 million. Then, in December 2009—well into Barack Obama’s administration—the White House said it found 22 million emails, dated between 2003 and 2005, that it claimed had been mislabeled. That cache was given to the National Archives, and it and other plaintiffs agreed, on December 14, 2009, to settle their lawsuit. But the emails have not yet been made available to the public.

According to Newsweek, there have been 560,397 articles mentioning Clinton’s emails.  Wikipedia lists 29 references for the Bush story.  A bit of a double standard?

    This Bush invaded Iraq for no good reason, and is responsible for death of around 4,500 Americans and many more Iraqis. He should have been turned over the Hague and hanged for this war crime. See Consortium News for other unmentionable facts about Hillary and Trump.

    You might be interested in this morning’s news on BBC: “18 Revelations from Wikileaks Hackled Clinton E-mails”. It unlikely you every find this news on any US news sources.

    It would help your credibility if you spelled correctly. It is “LOSING” not “LOOSING”. Loose is something that is not tight enough, like a “loose” belt. Lose is something you have that is now lost. I.E: Lose weight. I wouldn’t post this if there weren’t so many people that make the same mistake – my pet peeve.
