Is it possible to determine which username created a GPO?

On the Details tab, I see the Owner, but it is "Domain Admins".  I'd like to know which specific username created a GPO.

I need to determine who created a GPO which already exists.

The issue is, a GPO has caused operational side-effects, so I need to know who created it to make sure they are aware of their mistake.

Any options?

Again - this is after the fact.  NO way to tell the user who modified a policy?

Apparently, unless auditing is already in place, there is not a mechanism to determine the user who changed a GPO.  Even if auditing is enabled, a concern would be the age of the change - for example, if the change ages and the security logs are rolled or overwritten.
