Good catch, montag.
Too bad they can't bring in Lynndie England to give Berger the Abu Graibh treatment. She'd get the whole truth out of him! I'd love to see Berger on a leash. ;)
Right. It is my understanding that Ashcroft has known about this for a while now.
Lindsey is certainly the go to guy when there's trouble in the ex-Clinton administration. SOme things never change.
This happened in October and then the search was in January
She had to have known about it
BTW .. how is this story just breaking now??
Skip the article at the top of this thread. Read this expanded, later version from the same author.
I haven't read how they figured it out. But appearently this investigation has been going on for awhile.
Wonder if the missing doccuments will end up being "found" in the archives at Bill's Readin' Room and massage Parlor in Little Rock?
Sounds like a bunch of thieves and gypsies relishing over pilfered spoils - JUST LIKE DEMOCRATS!
Don't you find it interesting that the media is identifying Berger with the Clinton administration? Like, suddenly they are willing to throw Clinton over the side in order to save Kerry.
With Soap Box Derby plans. These people are so pathetically amateurish - if they didn't have the media going all out to cover for them, they'd be more inept and bumbling than the Three Stooges.
Thanks for the excellent legal info. Was it legal for Berger to make notes from the classified material he reviewed, and then to take those notes with him when he left the archives?
Guess who was in charge of the investigation of Waco?
``The House Intelligence Committee has not been informed on the loss or theft of any classified intelligence information from the Archives, but we will follow up and get the information that is appropriate for the committee to have,'' the committee said Monday in a statement. ``And if it has occurred, we should be informed. If there has been delay in getting the information to the committee we need to know why.''
That "we need to know why" line suggests to me that we have hearings on this in our future. Kind of like Memogate--when how they were discovered seemed to trump content-- when the weak-spined GOPers caved even though they had the Rats dead to rites. We grap defeat out of the jaws of victory a lot.
This may develop into more than a few ARKANCIDES.
If this investigation has been going on for 9 months, then chances are it is about more than just Sandy.
Well it won't be hillary,maybe Dennis Kucinich will be ready to stop campaigning to accept the nomination. LOL!!!!!
Nothing will save Kerry now.
This is the SAME "GORELICK" that served as a 9/11 commissioner and blasted Bush!!
REGARDLESS if they are orginals or copies .. THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO LEAVE THE ROOM
He knows that
Good rundown, Wolfstar. This is going to get interesting. We now have a liar (Wilson) and a felon (Berger) advising the Kerry campaign.
FBI was not focused as sharply on counterterrorism as the CIA. The overall impression that the Bureau conveyed to us, until the very end of our time in office, was that al Qaeda had a limited capacity to operate in the U.S. and that its presence here was under surveillance. The stream of threat information we received each day pointed repeatedly to attacks on U.S. interests abroad, not at home. And because that was the daily threat picture, that was where we focused most of our attention. Nonetheless, when presented with specific domestic threats - such as during the Millennium period - we protected the homeland.
Finally, you asked about the transition. When the Clinton administration ended, we did our best to alert the incoming team to the terrorist threat in general and the al Qaeda threat specifically. During the transition, Bush administration officials received intensive briefings on terrorism. As the press has reported, I told my successor Condoleezza Rice that she would be spending more time on terrorism and bin Laden than any other issue.
