Sandy Berger and Dan Rather: One year later



Clinton National Security Advisor Sandy Burglar walked yesterday and was fined $50,000 for committing a serious felony that would have landed anyone else in prison for years.

So what did Sandy Burglar do? Let's go right to the man himself,
In the course of reviewing over several days thousands of pages of documents on behalf of the Clinton administration in connection with requests by the September 11 commission, I inadvertently took a few documents from the Archives. When I was informed by the Archives that there were documents missing, I immediately returned everything I had except for a few documents that I apparently had accidentally discarded.

What does it say about a guy who was National Security Advisor if he could,

A: stuff classified documents down his pants
B: "accidentally discard" documents that were important enough to shove down his pants.

I only wish this outrageous breach of national security got the same kind of attention as Kanye West's pretzel logic.

The fact is, this story has been underplayed since day one. In August 2004 on the CBS Evening News, Dan Rather introduced the scandal this way:

Sandy Berger, who was national security adviser under President Clinton, stepped aside today as an adviser to Sen. John Kerry. CBS' John Roberts reports this was triggered by a carefully orchestrated leak about Berger, and the timing of it appears to be no coincidence.

It seems the old newsman was missing the story entirely. He'd be missing a lot more than that in a few weeks. One year ago today Rather made a fatal mistake, the infamous 60 Minute II Bush National Guard story. 'Buckhead' from Free Republic, Scott Johnson from Powerline, Bill from INDCJounal, and Charles Johnson from Little Green Footballs were leading the citizen journalist charge.

The fallout ended Rather's career. Blogs made it happen.

In the earliest days of this evolving scandal, Scott Johnson from Powerline came on
Pundit Review Radio and broke the entire incident down for us starting with his intial post, The Sixty First Minute.
