I’ve had a few days now to think about this topic, and what questions I have and came up with a few.
First off, at the time of the crash, it seems every employee had their e-mails backed up on a server, a small amount of space according to some, but had a backup. so the question is technical, how did the crash eliminate the backed up server e-mails?
Second question is again somewhat technical. What type of outdated e-mail system are they using that the e-mails are stored not on some central location like every other e-mail system out there, but on her computer? Seriously, my computer could crash but I wouldn’t lose a single e-mail from any of my many e-mail accounts.
Third, in today’s age of technology, these employees only had one computer? Many employees, especially those who travel have a desktop computer and a laptop.
And my final question, did Lerner have a smartphone upon which she received work e-mails?
With questions three and four it is a matter of if the e-mails were only on her computer, how could she get them in other locations? We know she visited the White House, so was she out of touch with her e-mails during that time?
This entire ‘We lost the e-mails’ only shows how much our government thinks we the public are idiots. Its time to stand up and demand accountability. If this was a company people would be boycotting their products and lawsuits would be drawn up. Instead we have a system which is protecting itself from those it was at one time sworn to protect.
