White House Destroyed Back-Up Tapes

The Raw Story reports that the White House, which has up till now refused to cooperate in the case of the missing emails regarding the outing of former CIA agent Valerie Plame, has now in fact come up with a statement a few minutes - let's repeat that - a few minutes before their court-ordered midnight deadline ran out:

The White House has acknowledged recycling its backup computer tapes of e-mail before October 2003, raising the possibility that many electronic messages — including those pertaining to the CIA leak case — have been taped over and are gone forever.

How convenient.
