The Bush White House Motto should read, "If there's no record, it's like it never existed."
Bush has asked for the resignation of the current National Archivist, a Clinton appointee, to step down. He's nominating Allen Weinstein, the former head of the Center For Democracy, a GOP thinktank, who's work as a historian has been critizied as being flawed... for being secretive.
The Society Of American Archivists has questioned this appointment, along with about 8 other organizations.
And the National Coalition For History also has posted some objections to this appointment.
Somehow, I think the full damage we're taking because of this administration may never be fully known.Posted by Ted Stevko at April 18, 2004 01:16 AM | TrackBack
