This "honest mistake" from someone who has been involved in our countries secrets, does not fly with me.

#1 It began before they caught him. Archivists were suspicious and caught him on a second (possibly third visit).
#2 I do not care where he put the documents to get them out, he knew better.
#3 When he found them at home, he should have returned them, not thrown them away.

I agree Dread this is not cool. He should have returned that stuff.

I also think Berger did some good things when he was National Security Advisor. He helped with the Good Friday treaty in Ireland. That's something IMO. I will agree that this is not exactly one of them.

Perhaps Berger was trying to draw attention away from something else...

Berger Said No

On December 4, 1999, the National Security Council’s counterterrorism coordinator, Richard Clarke, sent Mr. Berger a memo suggesting a strike in the last week of 1999 against Al Qaeda camps in Afghanistan. Reports the commission: “In the margin next to Clarke’s suggestion to attack Al Qaeda facilities in the week before January 1, 2000, Berger wrote, ‘no.’ ”
Somewhat inconsistent with his 9-11 Commission testimony (which focused on GWB).

So he tried to hide his actions by destroying copies of the documents?

I also find it interesting that the editorial writer, when making the rhetorical statements about who is to blame for keeping Clinton preoccupied with other matters, does not mention the media.

Anyway, the problem with such theories would be that because

the original documents remain in the National Archives,

Berger would not have been able to deny the 9/11 commission access to them. Any attempted cover-up would not have covered anything up. Instead, he's now drawn attention to the documents.
Everybody does realize "no evidence" was lost or destroyed?
