"The Cafferty File": A White House screwup?
.When it comes to missing documents and the Bush White House, do you see some kind of pattern?
As an IT professional, I don't find the "We lost it" excuse very believable. If computer forensics can locate child pornographers and Mark Foley's IM history they can certainly find missing e-mails. If they can't, I wouldn't want to work for them. This sounds way too convenient. -Bill, Des Moines, Iowa
I definitely see a pattern, Jack. And I'm certain the missing e-mails are right next to the missing weapons of mass destruction. -Christopher
Yes, this looks very much "Nixonesque." Now, we just have to continue the story to its logical conclusion! -Brent, Denver, Colorado
Jack, I'd send you my response, but it'll probably be erased/lost/archived incorrectly. -Veronica, Raleigh, North Carolina
How about looking for the archival material Sandy Berger sneaked out while you are looking for all the White House e-mails? Maybe Sandy Berger has those e-mails. -Gretchen, Merritt Island, Florida
What does yesterday's bomb attack on the Iraqi parliament say about the U.S. "surge" plan?
It says that the troop surge isn't working. It says that all we have done is present more American targets for them to bomb and shoot at. It says we need a war czar with a pullout plan. -Bill, Quarryville, Pennsylvania
Means Bush still has it all wrong. They never wanted us and every day there is a bomb going off it proves him wrong at the expense of our soldiers and their people. -R., Texas
The Iraqi government met in an emergency meeting today in order to show their defiance to Al Qaeda terrorists. We should stand with them in their fight. This is the right battle at the right time. -Bob, Lehigh Acres, Florida
If the Iraqi government has to govern behind locked gates, walls and armed guards, then it is not governing. The surge is a joke! -Victor
It says that the insurgents have their own "surge" plan that is working better than ours. -Bob, Fall River, Massachusetts What does it mean when more Americans identify themselves as Independents, than as Democrats or Republicans?
It means that more and more Americans are finding it more and more embarrassing to be slimed by sharing a label with either of these two sets of useless self-serving hypocrites.-Dave, Pennsylvania
It means that America needs a strong third party. How can two parties represent such a diverse nation? America is not a democracy, it is a "duocracy": a two-party system that keeps each other in power. We need a change, and we need it now.-Ari, Chapel Hill, North Carolina
I think that most voters are not sure which one of the two corrupt parties will steal the least amount of their tax dollars.- Jimmy, Virginia
Jack it does not matter that people say they are Independent-minded. As a registered (I), I challenge them to register that way. -Darryl, Pennsylvania
