Missing E-Mails

I must say I share Patrick Leahy's skepticism about the White House's claim they can't find pre-2004 e-mails from 22 White House officials, including Karl Rove, regarding the Justice Department's firing of eight U.S. attorneys. The White House claims it's an honest error, and they're working on it - we'll see. But if they don't find them, Leahy is correct to issue subpoenas for their production, and to bring in IT experts who can testify that in this day and age, e-mails cannot simply be "lost."
