In 2003 some 72% of Americans fully supported the Abandoning of the Missions and those Sent to Accomplish so extremely Quickly after 9/11!!

At least some 95%, if not more as less then 1% serve them, not only still support the, just below, total lack of Sacrifice, they ran from any and all Accountability and left everything still on the table to be continually used if the political/military want was still in play in future executive/legislative wants!!

The Missing John Yoo Emails

“This is a case study in how transparency is hampered when agencies fail to comply with their legal obligations to preserve and share records.”

CREW: Most Yoo Emails Won’t Be Found

April 28, 2011 - The public likely will never learn the full truth behind the controversial torture memos authored by John Yoo, former Deputy Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) in the Department of Justice (DOJ). Today, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) released a report revealing how few of Mr. Yoo’s emails are in DOJ’s possession, despite a federal law mandating preservation of all federal records, including email.

In February 2010, DOJ’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) publicly released a report, first issued internally in July 2009, regarding OLC’s preparation of the torture memos, including Mr. Yoo’s role. OPR said the investigation was hampered by the loss of Mr. Yoo’s email records, which had been “deleted” and were “reportedly not recoverable.” As a result, the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) asked DOJ to investigate whether the deletion of the emails had violated federal law.

CREW filed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests for copies of all emails Mr. Yoo had sent or received and, after DOJ failed to respond, sued for the records. Eventually, OLC produced over 200 emails it had located in Mr. Yoo’s email account and withheld 151 others. Notably, almost none of the produced emails related to Mr. Yoo’s work at DOJ. Instead they involved topics such as his stint as an outside lecturer and publications he was preparing.

Following NARA’s request, DOJ uncovered more than 15,000 additional emails, including emails from another OLC official, Patrick Philbin, who also was involved in drafting the torture memos. From this new collection, DOJ shared 36 emails with congressional staff and eventually produced 15 to CREW with minor redactions. {continued}
