Most Missing Bush E-mails Found

The Executive Office of the President settled lawsuits with two groups over millions of missing Bush administration e-mails. The AP reported:

Computer technicians found 22 million missing White House e-mails from the administration of President George W. Bush and the Obama administration is searching for dozens more days' worth of potentially lost e-mail from the Bush years, according to two groups that filed suit over the failure by the Bush White House to install an electronic record keeping system.

It will be years before the public sees any of the recovered e-mails because they will now go through the National Archives' process for releasing presidential and agency records. Presidential records of the Bush administration won't be available until 2014 at the earliest.

When will the public have the opportunity to read Fran Townsend's and Andy Card's e-mails on Hurricane Katrina? Maybe on the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina...
