Apparently the quantity of records destroyed was a result of a broken water pipe that has been scheduled for repair since 2001. As the sprinkler system was not functioning, the Blackwater employees hired to guard the records could only throw more records onto the flames in an attempt to contain them.

Additional records from a neighboring closet presently unaccounted for that are believed to have been destroyed in the fire now include items related to:

All subpoenas issued by the U.S. Congress to White House employees
Walter Reed facility maintenance

Don't forget the documents that never made it into the Warren Commission Report, the report from the House Subcomittee Investigating the Assassinations of the Kennedys and King, documents relating to the coup which overthrew the first democratically-elected leader of Haiti, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the Allende coup, deals made with Pinochet and receipts for the sale of nerve gas to Saddam Hussein which was later used on the Kurds.

In all seriousness, I'm scared of what's going to happen when the Cheney/Bush administration leaves office.

They're going to have their finger on the button right until 1/20/08. Bush is a dry drunk who refuses to take responsibility for his actions. He may decide he wants to check out and take the rest of us with him.

Sound far-fetched? I remember reading that the Secret Service and Gerald Ford wanted to get the "Football" away from Nixon asap in Aug. 1974. They knew he was majorly depressed and they believed that he could be suicidal in the hours immediately following his resignation.

Ya man,
After 911 and all the ploting was going on to invade and occupy oil-rich Iraq, the neo-cons were saying "real men go to Tehran" (Iran)
I wouldn't put anything past them-- remember those nukes that were "accidently" flown from South Dakota to Barksdale in Louisanna???
