Submission + - NSA Says It Can't Search Its Own Emails (propublica.org)

An anonymous reader writes: Responding to a Freedom of Information Act request by Justin Elliot, blogger and journalist at ProPublica.com, the NSA regretfully informed him:

"There's no central method to search an email at this time with the way our records are set up, unfortunately," NSA Freedom of Information Act officer Cindy Blacker told me last week. The system is “a little antiquated and archaic," she added.

Maybe a little extra could be included in the next NSA budget for an Outlook license?
