Amazingly enough the Federal government can probably document what color my underwear I wore yesterday, what I ate for lunch, and every phone conversation I had but now that the trial concerning alleged Al Qaeda terrorists is about to begin there is a sudden and mysterious computer crash with no back up of confidential information at the Department of Defense. What is even more interesting is that this happens with numerous Saudis who have ties to Bin Laden involved in the trials but for some reason they have been pushed back for various reasons during Bush’s second term and that policy has continued throughout Obama’s reign of terror since he was elected in 2008.
Here is a link to the story with the pertinent portions highlighted from Bloomberg:

Five days of hearings scheduled for next week in the case of the accused plotters of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks were postponed after defense lawyers said internal documents went missing on government computers.
The judge, Army Colonel James Pohl, postponed the hearings until mid-June in a two-page order posted today.
Lawyers for the accused plotters requested the delay last week after complaining that their confidential work was inexplicably missing from the U.S. Defense Department computers on which they store documents.
Army Lt. Colonel Todd Breasseale, a Pentagon spokesman, said in a statement that the Office of Military Commissions, which is prosecuting the case, “suffered from a nearly catastrophic server ‘crash’” that led to “losses of indiscriminate data.” Of almost 400 gigabytes of data initially lost, “seven gigabytes have yet to be accounted for,” he said.
Hearings in the case, which began last year, have been plagued by delay. In August, the threat of a hurricane canceled a week of arguments while hearings this year were slowed as the judge probed defense claims that the government was eavesdropping on them.
Seriously? We’re going to believe that this data just went oops it’s gone? The .gov is playing everyone in this country for fools as each revelation and tie to the Saudi government gets close to being exposed.
