The site was so popular, and so many people
added content, that the site’s server failed and the

WikiThePresidency.org is a fascinating new experiment in grass
roots American politics, PFAW continued. “It was about
time the public had a single place to read up on the multitude
of legally and ethically dubious policies and activities of
the Bush administration.”
WikiThePresidency.org uses the same technology as the popular
encyclopedia site, Wikipedia.org (which is also authored entirely
by the public). WikiThePresidency.org allows users to post any
material they have about the Bush administration wrongdoing,
to edit any material already posted, and to create new topic
areas at will.
We have launched this site with a small amount of content,” the
release continues, “just enough so you can see the type
of material we seek. It’s up to you and your friends
to make this a truly useful new site for the nation.”
PFAW adds a caution, however: “This is not a blog for
rants against the Bush administration (the world already has
of those). It has been created to grow into a resource for
those seeking information on White House wrongdoing. Please,
factual material backed up with links to reputable sources.”
