The Secret White House Communication System

This post is kinda scary. It details a secret and dedicated email server that the White House uses instead of the one run by the official email server as mandated by a law in the Presidential Records Act. The idea is that all emails must be ran through the official one in the event an email might be needed for future examination.

Instead, many folks around Bush use a different email server to help keep their actions secret and outside the venue of accountability.

Honestly, who can blame them, right? Sometimes a person may do a thing in secret for a greater good. Still, the post articulates a scary scenario in which accountability left unchecked can cause great mischief.
