Remember the Coalition Provisional Authority, which governed Iraq between the time Saddam Hussein's regime toppled and the creation of a new permanent government? How about the President's Commission on Moon, Mars and Beyond, an effort during the administration of President George W. Bush to implement the administration's space-travel plans? Or the National Drought Policy Commission, which existed from 1998 to 2000? The University of North Texas has archived the complete websites of these and other defunct federal agencies and commissions in an archive it calls the CyberCemetery, FCW reports. Visitors can browse all the available archives or search for a specific one and read all of the documents and other resources those bodies ever published.
