The bush* admin was famous for using private e-mail accounts to dodge the White House servers and the trail they created.  Is there an alternative way to gain access to those emails using a resource that we have only recently learned about?

So when did the NSA start operating their total data collection program. Wouldn't those records include e-mails from all private e-mail servers?  We know that the NSA is collecting all that data but when did they start.  I’m pretty confident they were using those data collection programs before the got “official” clearance because the just had to test to make sure they worked.

Are those Rove, bush* and cheney e-mails with incriminating details of their misadventures preserved in the NSA data banks?

Has anyone considered this thread of a connection in their investigations?  This could be very revealing.  This could be a real “Hoist by Their Own Petard” moment for those schemers/cockroaches trying to avoid daylight on their actions.

I know we are supposed to be looking forward and not looking back but I just want to know!

Could Edward Snowden have those records?

Maybe they could recover ‘Bridgegazi’ e-mails the same way.

It’s an evil program and should be abolished but it’s out there and it could be useful to solve some real crimes.  It may be tainted evidence that cannot be used to prosecute but exposing their crimes using their own words would still be a great accomplishment.

I know this would be a long shot but if we don’t ask and look deeply we will never know and the truth of the infamy of their crimes will be lost to history.

Note Re: “bush*”:  In the elections of 2000, I voted in Duval County Florida using the punch card voting devices.  When I voted for Al Gore the action did not feel the same as it felt when I voted in all of the other races.  I went back and punched it vigorously to make sure my vote registered on the card but I did not inspect the card when I pulled it out of the device to deposit into the ballot box.  My suspicions were confirmed by the evening news and the revelations of the punch card anomalies.  My vote was never counted and I will never forget.  Because of my experience I will always refer to the former Resident and all of his family seeking political office in the lower case followed with an “*” to indicate their questionable family history.

Despite my personal disappointment over the election I only wished that he would be a decent president.  I never wished for him to fail, his failures were all of his own doing.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
