    The War Over Nixon The ghost of our most divisive modern president haunts efforts to make his library tell the truth by Scott Martelle Tim Naftali thought docents at the Nixon Presidential Library and Museum should be honest about the Watergate tapes. The docents, though, couldn’t talk about what they didn’t know. “I had docents come to me and say, ‘Is there anything incriminating on the tapes?’ ” says Naftali, the library director. The tapes were so damaging to Richard M. Nixon that they were a reason he resigned as president of the United States. Naftali also thought the docents...

    The past haunts Richard Nixon's library/h2> Once privately run, the Yorba Linda presidential museum is making a transition to government operation. And that has turned statues of Mao Tse-tung and Chou En-lai into political footballs. The statues depict two old men relaxing in easy chairs. As others mill about the drawing room, the men engage in conversation, one gesturing at the other to underscore a point. For nearly 20 years the likenesses of China's communist leaders Mao Tse-tung and Chou En-lai have sat perfectly still in the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Yorba Linda. Now, they are creating...

    WASHINGTON - Despite pleges to protect South Vietnam, former US president Richard Nixon privately vowed to "cut off the head" of its leader unless he backed peace with the communist North, tapes released Tuesday showed. The tapes appear to confirm charges by South Vietnam's late president, Nguyen Van Thieu, who tearfully accused the United States of breaking its word to protect Saigon when the southern capital fell in 1975. The National Archives released more than 150 hours of new tapes from Nixon, who notoriously recorded his conversations. Nixon is heard railing against the media and Congress for allegedly undercutting the...

    The US National Archives offered a cash reward of up to 50,000 dollars Friday for the recovery of a missing computer hard drive containing sensitive personnel data from the Clinton administration. Described by the archives as a "Western Digital MY BOOK external hard drive" with a 2-terabyte storage capacity, it contained copies of backup tapes from the White House dating back to president Bill Clinton's tenure in the 1990s.

    The U.S. National Archives on Wednesday said it is offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of a missing hard drive that contains personal information of former Clinton administration staff and visitors. The small portable hard drive was being kept as a backup, the National Archives explained in a question-and-answer document (PDF) on its Web site. It held copies of about 113 four-millimeter tape cartridges of "snapshots" of hard-drive contents of employees who left the Executive Office of the President. Because the staff maintained White House entry information and electronic address books, the external drive contains personally...

    A massive amount of sensitive, national security-related information from the Clinton administration has gone missing from the national archives. The Inspector General of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) told congressional committee staffers Tuesday that a hard drive containing over a terabyte of information -- the equivalent of millions of books--went missing from the NARA facility in College Park, Md., sometime between October 2008 and March 2009. The Department of Justice and the Secret Service are conducting an investigation, but it's so far unclear whether the drive was lost as the result of a crime or an accident. That...

    Legal Battles, Technical Difficulties Delay Required Transfer to Archives The required transfer in four weeks of all of the Bush White House's electronic mail messages and documents to the National Archives has been imperiled by a combination of technical glitches, lawsuits and lagging computer forensic work, according to government officials, historians and lawyers. Federal law requires outgoing White House officials to provide the Archives copies of their records, a cache estimated at more than 300 million messages and 25,000 boxes of documents depicting some of the most sensitive policymaking of the past eight years. But archivists are uncertain whether the...

    Dick Cheney alone has the authority to determine which records, if any, from his tenure will be handed over to the National Archives when he leaves office, his lawyers say. That claim is in federal court documents asking that a lawsuit over the records be dismissed. Cheney leaves office Jan. 20, potentially taking with him millions of records that might otherwise become public record....

    Washington, DCFor most Americans, Election Day marks the end of the presidential selection process. At the National Archives, it is only the beginning. Most Americans know that the National Archives preserves historical documents such as the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.

After Election Day the staff at the Federal Register ensure the complicated and sometimes confusing steps in the electoral process are followed exactly. In the weeks prior to the election,...

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Thousands of pages of Hillary Rodham Clinton's schedules as first lady are being released to the public after months of pressure and criticism that the Clintons were delaying the disclosure. The National Archives, which operates the former President Clinton's presidential library in Little Rock, announced Tuesday it would release 11,046 pages of Clinton's daily schedules at the Little Rock facility and online Wednesday morning. Clinton has faced criticism from fellow Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and Republicans over the number of White House documents from her husband's administration that have not been made public. The...

    ** EXCERPT ** The National Archives announced on Tuesday that 11,046 pages of Senator Hillary Rodhams White House schedules will be released on Wednesday. The records were the subject of a legal fight between Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group, and the National Archives, which has been slow to comply with a request to release the records, arguing that the vetting process takes time. Mrs. Clintons schedules have attracted close attention throughout the campaign, partly because Mrs. Clinton has frequently held up her eight years as first lady as evidence of her experience. ~snip~ Of the more than 11,000 pages...

    Archives to clear Clinton logs in March By ANDREW DeMILLO, Associated Press Writer 5 minutes ago The National Archives said Monday it expects to release Hillary Rodham Clinton's schedules as first lady later this month, but has asked a judge to delay the release of thousands of her telephone logs for one to two years.

    NEW YORK -- A rare 710-year-old copy of the Magna Carta, among the most important historical documents ever to hit the auction block, sold for US$21.3 million Tuesday at Sotheby's. The document was bought by a Washington businessman who said he was determined to see it remain in the United States, where it has been on display at the National Archives and Records Administration since 1988. The last remaining copy in the United States and the last in private hands, the Magna Carta, one of 17 known to exist, was sold by The Perot Foundation, created by billionaire former U.S....

    During the months of September and October 2003, former Clinton National Security Advisor, Sandy Berger, made at least three trips to the National Archives, ostensibly for the purpose of briefing himself and his former boss, Bill Clinton, for their testimony before the 9/11 Commission. During the time that Berger was given access to highly classified material, he was seen stuffing documents into his trousers, his underwear, and even into his socks. By the time FBI agents arrived at Bergers home and office he had already destroyed some of the stolen documents. Berger told FBI agents that he had inadvertently removed...

    The public interest group Judicial Watch says the National Archives is apparently ignoring a court order aimed at forcing a more timely release of Hillary Clinton's White House records. Judicial Watch had filed a Freedom of Information Act Request to obtain Mrs. Clinton's office records, including phone logs, personal schedules, and other documents that may shed light on her activities during the Clinton years. A court ruled that 10,000 pages of those documents will be processed completely by the end of January 2008; however, the National Archives and Records Administration "cannot provide a date certain" to complete the processing of...

    SANDY BERGER Stole gov't papers Hillary Clinton distanced herself from Sandy Berger-after it was revealed Berger is helping guide her presidential campaign. "He has no official role in my campaign. He's been a friend for more than 30 years," she insisted. Berger admitted he swiped sensitive documents on several occasions from the National Archives, stashing them in his clothes preceding Sept. 11 commission hearings. Berger shredded stolen documents at home, and "panicked" when investigators found out, according to an inspector general's report.
