The extent of Sandy Burglar's treason

Committee report
Oversight and Government Reform Committee Ranking Member Tom Davis (R-VA) released the following statement today on a committee report that sheds important new light on Sandy Berger’s theft of classified documents from the National Archives. The report makes it clear that the full extent of Mr. Berger’s document removal can never be known, and consequently the Department of Justice could not assure the 9/11 Commission that it received all responsive documents to which Mr. Berger had access...

...“My staff’s investigation reveals that President Clinton’s former National Security Advisor Sandy Berger compromised national security much more than originally disclosed,” Davis said. “It is now also clear that Mr. Berger was willing to go to extraordinary lengths to compromise national security, apparently for his own convenience.

Besides, really some of us are just making a big deal out of nothing – such a silly little mistake, really, wadding up documents and putting them in your socks – oopsy, didn’t mean to do that! He's had his hand slapped; he paid a small fine. Let's just sweep this little matter under the rug [under a construction trailer – same thing], shall we... [What was part of his punishment? Three years revocation of his National Security Clearance? Hmmpf. His “privileges” should be restored just about the time that Hillary will want him working with her, again. G-d forbid…]
