    It appears that the back ups for emails etc that are supposed to be handed over to the National Archives seems to have, well, funny thing is....ummmm they went missing.

    Bush e-mails may be secret a bit longer - Washington Post- msnbc.com

    And then..........

    In the case of the vice president's records, the White House has promised a different federal judge that it will comply with a Nixon-era law requiring the preservation and transfer of all documents related to the vice president's official duties, but the coalition has drafted a filing for the court on Monday that accuses Cheney of subtly seeking to circumscribe the legal definition of what those official duties encompass to such a degree that he will be able to take home or destroy countless documents related to policymaking that historians want to see.

    Anne Weisman, the counsel for the plaintiffs, called Cheney's assertion that only those records related to tasks specially assigned by Bush need to be preserved "a loophole . . . large enough to drive truckloads of documents through." It means, she said, that Cheney would not have to surrender documents related to legislation or "advice he gives the president on his own initiative and the influence he has over the president's decisions."

    E-mails are never lost.
    There's always a record of transmission with the ISPs involved, so if people really wanted to find out what was said on the messages it could happen. It usually takes a LOT of work to get an ISP to unveil that kind of information, and most people don't want to get involved that much. But in the case of the President, it may just be worth the investigation.
