Is The White House Scrubbing its Website?

There is a report on the Daily Kos that attempts to document removal of embarrassing materials from the White House website.

Some of the post has “proven” facts and other bits are labeled “Speculation.” I would be very interested if anyone in the library community can verify or disprove any of the facts or speculations in the article. Also, are there official print resources that document the information that smintheus finds missing at the White House web site? Please let us at FGI know what you find.

If we can’t verify or disprove any of this, perhaps we should ask ourselves why we can’t. What are we as depository libraries doing if we can’t answer what should be a simple straightforward question about who said what, when?
