An extension, until at least Feb. 20, was requested by Randy Ruaro, deputy chief of staff to Gov. Sean Parnell, in October. Ruaro maintained that without an extension, responding to requests for the emails would "substantially impair" the other functions of the governor's office, as well as the ability to properly and thoroughly review the messages.It's taking quite a while. Palin left office in July 2009 and it's already 2012 now. Meanwhile Bradly Manning is sitting in prison for releasing a large number of government documents to Wikileaks. He knows how to do this and I'm sure he's got some spare time.
Perhaps the Governor's office could show some initiative and a little uncharacteristic cooperation with the Feds by working out a deal to let Manning help his office get the Palin emails out.
