National Archives visitors know they’ll find the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights in the main building’s magnificent rotunda in Washington. But they won’t find the patent file for the Wright Brothers’ Flying Machine or the maps for the first atomic bomb missions anywhere in the Archives inventory.

Many historical items the Archives once possessed are missing, including:

_Civil War telegrams from Abraham Lincoln.
_Original signatures of Andrew Jackson.
_Presidential portraits of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
_NASA photographs from space and on the moon.
_Presidential pardons.

Some were stolen by researchers or Archives employees. Others simply disappeared without a trace.

And there’s more gone from the nation’s record keeper.

The Archives’ inspector general, Paul Brachfeld, is conducting a criminal investigation into a missing external hard drive with copies of sensitive records from the Clinton administration. On the hard drive were Social Security numbers, including one for one of former Vice President Al Gore’s daughters.

Because the equipment also may include classified information, Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, calls it a a major national security breach.

Brachfeld has documented thousands of electronic storage devices, including computers and servers, that have gone missing over the past decade from the National Archives and Records Administration.

Grassley, who has demanded an accounting of all missing items, said the loss of historical documents “robs our nation of its history and is completely unacceptable.”

    I’m baaaaaccccckkkkkk. Oh what a great country America is. President Obama is already making a huge difference in America and the world. We are, once again, loved allover the world. His great speech in the middle east has already sown the seeds of change in Lebanon, Syria and even Iran. See we don’t have to illegally invade a sovereign nation and piss off the rest of the world. Now he is in Russia making our world safe for our children by reducing the number of nuclear weapons.
    Cap & Trade has passed the Congress and soon it will pass in the Senate. Then we can begin to save the environment and help to end Global Warming. What a genius Al Gore was to be on this issue in the early 80’s.
    The Stimulous bill is begining to show the positive effects on our economy. This is only 6 months into his 8 year term. Just imagine how great America will be when he is done on Jan 20, 2017. God Bless our President!!

    Hey EX-Patriot You’re not the only one who’s happy. Every other Commie
    is celebrating too. I doubt that happiness will last long. You’ll be very
    lucky if your comrade Obama serves out one full term.

    Why is it that Neo-cons ALWAYS resort to insults, name calling and hate? Ohh yea I know why. Because they are so bereft of any ideas, programs or solutions to the problems they created over the past 29 years. Well President Obama has done more to help our people in his first 6 months than your hero Bush or Reagan did in there 16 years in office.
    Its going to be great 8 years of Barack then 8 years of Michelle Obama. We will bury your Neo-con failed policies forever!! Don’t you wish your side had half the inteligence that the Obama’s have?? They are genius’.

    Actually, you’ll be too busy burying your comrads from their failed universal health care privelages to bury any free market policies.

    The smarter, thinking (industrial/industrious) sectors of the population will know where to go for private health care- as they always did. Like Jeff Goldblum said in Juraissic park “…nature always finds a way…” Freedom is the natural state of man.

    I wonder if the “people” will abolish their Ivy League university system in favor of state schools, or abolish the private food industry in favor of state ag (think USDA here for the full effect)?

    If anything good can come from any of this insanity, maybe it’ll be the socialization of the entertainment industry – only state-sanctioned and funded media; I wonder how Bab’s and Baldwin will enjoy their new digs in public housing? No more BLING for the athletes, either.

    Maybe, we can borrow the lazy libs “Freedom of Choice” mantra from the pro-abortionists and loan it to the Capitalists (Freedom-Fighters) for awhile?

    This beast will eventually cannibilize itself-you watch- the first time one of the libs toys is threatended and it’s Obie Under the Bus….
