We're all familar with websites that setup mirrors to preserve online information. Some even have made a name for capturing information just before it is "reclassified" such as Russ Kick's thememoryhole.com. But now thanks to the North Texas Libraries and U.S. Goverment Print Office we can view many goverment website that have "passed on." This is particularly interesting for commissions such as the "Commission on the Intelligence Capabilities of the United States Regarding Weapons of Mass Destruction" which must terminate after 60 days of their final report.

Let us all remember, once on the web always on the web.
