I told you so, Chapter One

The day after the inauguration, the new administration filed a brief in a suit about forcing the White House to take greater efforts to locate and restore perhaps millions of emails "lost" by the Bush White House. The brief, echoing the stance of the Bush gang, argued the case should be dismissed because the effort to date had been sufficient. This even though
"We do not know how many more e-mails could be restored but have not been, because defendants have not looked," the National Security Archive said in [its own filing].

"The new administration seems no more eager than the last" to deal with the issue, said Anne Weismann, chief counsel for Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, the other group that sued the [Executive Office of the President].
(Info about the National Security Archive's response to the motion to dismiss can be found here.)

Oh, but everyone said, that was just the day after the inauguration, no time for Obama to put his stamp on it. Okay, fine. We'll offer more.
