    You hackies are grasping at straws again. From your link:


    George said his office found no direct evidence the tapes were destroyed to hide evidence from congress or law enforcement.

    Yep - how could anyone expect a tiny agency that is so new to computer use and backing-up data to understand the importance of preserving records?

    Poor example.

    Find a new scandal and maybe someone besides the desperate hacks will pay attention.

    So you're cool with government corruption, lying and destruction of evidence. Okay.

    Full Story
    Govt incompetence is not a needle in a haystack.
    W/o the actual details, it's hard to say more, imho.
    ymmv.

    I am sorry to hear that the fed govt is still using tapes for back up.
    I may be wrong.

    Most back ups are not kept forever.
    Generally there is a limit to how long back ups are kept.
    Backups are routinely recorded over or deleted.

    That doesn't mean that there was no funny business here.
    But it also isn't sufficient evidence in and of itself to show that there was funny business.
    I may be wrong.

    What a hell of a legacy this guy is going to have.
    It always amuses me when people think crap like this is limited to a single administration, or even multiple administrations of a particular lean. No. Convenient cover-ups are SOP and have been for decades.

    Considering that the leans are fairly evenly split and partisan, you're right, having consensus condemnation is rare.

    Isn't it funny how ignorance of the law isn't a defense for you or I but politicians and their lackies in government are incredibly ignorant and accident prone and it's no big deal?
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
