    White House Finds Missing E-Mails

    The Bush White House has long had a tendency for e-mails to go "missing" when the courts and Congress come calling, but the Justice Department claims the administration has located some 14 million previously missing missives after a massive search project that cost some $10 million to complete. Some good-government groups are still skeptical that everything will be in order, however: "I'll believe it when I see it," the counsel for CREW, Anne Weisman, who sued the administration to demand the preservation of its records, said on Wednesday. A federal court recently ordered administration officials to not destroy any politically significant records on the way out. In several major cases in recent years, including the Valerie Plame investigation, the US Attorneys scandal, and certain moments during the Iraq War, crucial e-mails have gone "missing" in the White House.
