The United States of America, your quality supplier of ideals of liberty, democracy, and the rule of law, would like to apologize for its 2001-2008 service outage.
The technical fault that led to this eight-year service interruption has been located, and a decision was made on Tuesday, November 4, 2008, to completely replace the faulty apparatus responsible for the problems.
The updated version of the system was placed on line on January 20, 2009, and early tests of the newly-installed components indicated that they are functioning correctly. If you continue to experience any difficulties, please contact us at www.whitehouse.gov to advise us as to your concerns.
We apologize for any inconvenience, destruction, poverty, or deaths caused by the outage, and we look forward to resuming full service -- and also to improving it in the years to come.
Thank you for your patience and understanding,
