Front Page: Gaza and Egypt, Emails, and the Marine

  • While Israel opened the border with Gaza briefly yesterday to deliver fuel, it was clearly not enough. Gunmen with explosives destroyed almost all of the seven-mile wall that divides Gaza from Rafah, Egypt. It's estimated that many thousands of Palestinians streamed across the downed wall and into Egypt to buy supplies. Hamas is not claiming responsibility for the destruction. Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak ordered his troops to allow the Palestinian crossing because they were in need. He said, "I told them to let them come in and eat and buy food and then return them later as long as they were not carrying weapons."
  • The White House is found to have no reliable method for backing up email correspondence. Though President Clinton had a system installed under court order, the Bush White House has not been using it. As a result, many emails have disappeared — including those sent right before the beginning of the Iraq War and those during the week after the capture of Saddam Hussein. Susan Cooper, spokeswoman for the National Archives and Records Administration said, "If it is a presidential record, then it does need to be retained. It doesn't matter what the format is — emails can be records."
  • The Marine, Cpl. Cesar Laurean, who is suspected in the killing of fellow Marine Maria Lauterbach, has been spotted by family near Guadalajara, Mexico. The suspect has left a trail of letters to his wife, post-marked along his route to Houston, where it's thought he took a bus to San Luis Potosi, Mexico.

I am still sickened that another marine could do something like that. I hope they are able to catch him and start a new chapter for Maria Lauterbach's family.

The first story - Good for them. You do what you have to do to survive. The second story - It's amazing just how many emails and similar documents have gone missing during Bush's presidency. In every department too. The White House... the CIA... The third story - I really hope they catch that a$$hole that killed Maria Lauterbach. He is the lowest of all low-lifes ever. I hope he spends the rest of his life rotting away in military prison.
