"I wouldn't rule out that there were a potential 5 million e-mails lost," Perino told reporters.

So what halfwitted offspring of a Ranger fundraiser was appointed "at the pleasure of the President" to be IT Supervisor at the White House?


WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Millions of White House e-mails may be missing, White House spokeswoman Dana Perino acknowledged Friday.

"I wouldn't rule out that there were a potential 5 million e-mails lost," Perino told reporters.

The administration was already facing sharp questions about whether top presidential advisers including Karl Rove improperly used Republican National Committee e-mail that the White House said later disappeared.

The latest comments were a response to a new report from a liberal watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), alleging that over a two-year period official White House e-mail traffic for hundreds of days has vanished -- in possible violation of the federal Presidential Records Act.

"This story is really now a two-part issue," CREW's Melanie Sloan told CNN. "First there's the use of the RNC e-mail server that's inappropriate by White House officials and secondly we've also learned that there were between March of 2003 and October of 2005 apparently over 5 million e-mail that were not preserved and these are e-mail on the regular White House server."

Perino stressed there's no indication the e-mails were intentionally lost, but she was careful not to dispute the outside group's allegations. "I'm not taking issue with their conclusions at this point," Perino said. "We're checking into them. There are 1,700 people in the Executive Office of the President."

Tell us NeoCons are there ANY positions within the Bush White House staffed with competent people? Or did our C- President just do what so many in his position do and only hire those dumber than him to try and make him look smarter? If so, it didn’t work.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

5 million emails is a lot of emails to delete. Are we paying for these guys to work as civil servants or are they paid by the RNC? How much time do they have left to do official WH business?

The rules should be changed to make use of anything other than the government issued computers and Blackberry devices, all on the Government's email system illegal. I could give a rat's ass if some electrons wiggle in that system on an RNC or DNC frequency. Same with phones. No one pays by the drink anymore, so there is no cost to the taxpayer. Jim
