Berger Pleads Guilty


Sandy Berger pleads guilty to taking of materials from the National Archives.

He called the episode “an honest mistake,” and denied criminal wrongdoing.

The charge of unauthorized removal and retention of classified material is a misdemeanor that carries a maximum sentence of a year in prison and up to a $100,000 fine.

Really it was an honest mistake because as Berger’s attorney said, “Berger knowingly removed the handwritten notes by placing them in his jacket and pants and inadvertently took copies of actual classified documents.”

One can knowingly make an honest mistake? I guess it can when you know what is is.

He returned most of the documents, but still missing are some drafts of a sensitive after-action report on the Clinton administration’s handling of Al Qaeda terror threats during the December 1999 millennium celebration.

It is amazing the levels these Clinton staffers go and the extent that they fall on the sword.
