WASHINGTON (AP) - Former national security adviser Sandy Berger, the subject of a criminal investigation over the disappearance of terrorism documents, stepped aside on Tuesday as an informal adviser to Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry.
"Mr. Berger does not want any issue surrounding the 9/11 commission to be used for partisan purposes. With that in mind he has decided to step aside as an informal adviser to the Kerry campaign until this matter is resolved," said Lanny Breuer, Berger's attorney.
The investigation had threatened to become a political problem for Kerry a week before his nominating convention in Boston in which he hopes to persuade voters that he is ready to be commander in chief. The cornerstone of Kerry's argument against Bush is that he used faulty intelligence and poor judgment in waging war against Iraq.

So what do you think the chances are that John Kerry is having a real bad day?
It says a lot about the judgment of the Democrats they're defending two people one of whom is under criminal investigation and other exposed as a liar. When it comes to national security, the Democrats couldn't find their behind with their two hands. And they're asking us to trust them with the White House?? They must be joking!

How noble of you, Mr Berger.
If your newspapers did not adequately cover this story, please not only write the editors but ALSO their advertisors. A great grass roots effort would be for all of us to write to the advertisors and tell them we won't buy the papers that are biased. Don't forget to send a copy to the editors
Oh, no. Berger certainly wouldn't want that. I mean, removing classified information related to Clinton and Al Qaeda wouldn't be the least bit "partisan," now would it?
The fat degenerate and liar can't even tell the truth when he's just had his career destroyed by his own stupidity.
Truthfully, he should be going to jail.
watch out: sandy burglar will be lauded as having done the right thing, not like those rotten republicans ..... awoooooooowaaaaahh!!
Notice the AP's use of the passive voice: "the disappearance of terrosim documents," as if Harry Houndini is responsible.
Note to AP: The documents didn't disappear. Berger took them."
Just listen and you can hear Hillary laughing out loud behind the curtain.
I can just see the poor FBI agent with latex gloves checking sandy's pants for evidence....yeeeccchhh. Wonder if they found any paper clips, staples etc.....
Hasn't the investigation been going on for months?
Did Kerry know about the invesitgation?
And he was the NSC man for Klintoon!WADJOKE! What a great ad for pubbies to distribute all around!
Assuming he didn't tell Kerry about this investigation, he's got zero nobility.
If he did tell Kerry, and Kerry kept him, Kerry's got zero judgment.
Well, I have a big smile on MY face and that's an indication of how well I think Kerry's day is going!
Berger's actions are OUTRAGEOUS!
