WH Response Of ‘No Evidence’ In IRS Scandal Confirmed

With the recent revelation that Lois Lerner and staff’s hard drives containing what could have been incriminating emails have been “recycled” and thrown away, the standard White House response (when it comes to any allegation of impropriety) that there’s “no evidence” of wrongdoing is, in this case, factual.

In effect, the NSA has a complete history of your email … Any NSA analyst can examine anyone’s email or web history going back years by filling in an online search request form.

    Air Force pilot’s gripe sheet:

    “Evidence of hydrolic fluid leak in right main gear.”
