Well, He Was Caught Red-Panted

“Former national security adviser Sandy Berger will plead guilty to taking classified material from the National Archives”, AP reports, adding, “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.”

I love this bit:

Many Democrats, including former President Clinton, suggested politics were behind disclosure of the probe only days before the release of the Sept. 11 commission report, which Republicans feared would be a blow to President Bush’s re-election campaign.

I guess for AP, it doesn’t matter that a former national security advisor was caught with classified documents in his trousers (And possibly other things…), what matters was the motive behind investigating him.
