This is just pathetic. What did the Clinton Administration do during the closing days of their term, in response to rising threats of terrorism against U.S. citizens, that would provoke a grown man to sneak secret documents concerning those events out of the National Archives in his pants legs and hide them on a construction site, and then later remove and destroy them? Will we ever get to know what really happened during the last years before 9-11-2001?
“Officials told The Associated Press at the time of the thefts that the documents were highly classified and included critical assessments about the Clinton administration’s handling of the millennium terror threats as well as identification of America’s terror vulnerabilities at airports and seaports.”
Sandy Berger was evidently so desperate—panicked—about the contents of the documents that he did not have time to plan a competent scheme for getting rid of them—-he got caught.
“Inspector General Paul Brachfeld reported that National Archives employees spotted Berger bending down and fiddling with something white around his ankles.”
Not only did former President Clinton’s national security adviser suffer no credible consequences for his crimes, but he will eventually be allowed to access the Archives again.
