although i can see why people want to know what was in every email generated, i dont agree that email ( a basic communication somtimes ) between staff should be public domain anyway.
unless, there is already a case or investigation ongoing that may require the contents of the emails. there is no case, that i know of, that would require this. i could be wrong about that though.
but to search through email to find reason to begin a case is not IMO a good idea.

I agree with you under normal circumstances. But emails which were generated and transmitted from government facilities in the ostensible role of the business of the government are, by definition, public domain. These are official records of the United States of America, and not subject to privacy considerations outside legally justified executive privilege.
