Berger: Taking Documents Was Not 'Honest Mistake' (Indy Channel, April 1, 2005)

Sandy Berger now admits that it was no "honest mistake" when he took classified documents from the National Archives.

The former Clinton national security adviser pleaded guilty Friday to taking the documents and cutting them up with scissors. Berger told a federal judge in Washington that he intentionally took three copies of a document about terror threats, and destroyed them.

The documents deal with the government's anti-terror efforts during the 2000 millennium celebration.

Sure makes me wonder what was in those documents he destroyed.

From Instapundit: ANOTHER UPDATE: Patrick Hynes emails:


"Berger did not destroy (or even attempt to AFAIK) all of the copies of the Clarke report, so what he was trying to expunge can't be anything Clarke said in the report. Must it not be true that Berger was after the marginal notations made on the report by officials who read the particular copies of the Clarke report Berger shredded? Do we know which officials reviewed the copies Berger destroyed? Can Archives tell us?"

Someone needs to check this one out!
