Was it a camera phone he took with him into the Archive? NY Daily News had great article on this and how he told Archive employess to leave the room because he had a sensitive call to make.

GoGov.com had a great round up on this today. Funny piece about an article written by Sandy Berger about Cell Phone Cameras. Not that Sandy Berger, but darned ironic.

Who were you stealing the documents for? What did he tell you to do? Will you testify against him in a court of law?

Are all documents in the NA scanned or microfilmed BEFORE putting them out for display?

Who did he call on his cellphone from the archive location? How long was he on the phone? Can we see his cellphone records for the days that he visited the archive?

How is it that anybody, I don't care who they are, can take out anything from the National Archive's? How is when it happens, instead of outrage there is spin, spin, spin... and you (media) fuel the spin... how is this?

Was the reading room under video surveillance?

If so, where's the tape?

What are Bill and Hillary holding over Berger's head that would cause him to throw away his whole political career by stealing and destroying classified documents.

Very curious.

Is your life insurance policy paid up, and did you recently increase the death benefits?

How about your will ? Is it signed and in a secure place ?

Will your executors be able to find it quickly or is it stuffed down someone's pants?

Why would Berger draw attention to himself by stealing the same documents again--documents that had obviously been discovered, because they had been replaced? Is this behavior compatible with trying to conceal anything? Are these Millenium Report documents really the ones he was after, or the ones that would get him the least time in prison, and his bosses none? Given a choice of 3-5 years for destroying classified documents, or the trial of the century with half the clinton crew as defendents, did Berger pick door number 1?

If you're not allowed to take notes out of the secure vault, and an observer is required to prevent unauthorized note taking, why would privacy be permitted during phone calls during which notes could be transmitted by voice for transcription.

At a February 26, 1999 Press Briefing by Sandy Berger , the former National Security Advisor said, in defense of bombing an aspirin factor after "hundreds of people and 12 Americans" had been killed by Osama's actions

"had we not gone forward and struck that plant -- and I would say parenthetically we did it at night, after checking to see whether they had a night shift, so as to keep civilian casualties to a minimum -- had we not and had a chemical weapon been used subsequently in the San Francisco subway system, I would find it hard to have defended our inaction."

Why, then, did the fear of killing 65 Afghani People keep him from taking action in June of 1999, December of 1999, and August of 2000?

That's what I want to know. Lindsey was the official liaison between the NA and Clinton, but these were not Clinton's personal docs and there was no reason to call him first when Berger did this. I hope whoever called Lindsey is having to explain things to the FBI right now.

Also, there must have been another phone call (to the FBI? DOJ?), because if this had gone only to Lindsey, it would never have been heard of again. I would doubt that the two phone calls came from the same folks, though.

I wonder if the tip-off phone call came from a lower ranking employee who was ordered to do something he or she thought to be a breach of procedure?

if this stuff is held in an underground vault, why does it even have cell phone coverage?

I think that second phone call was from someone who didn't go along with this, probably lower level, as you surmise.

In addition, I would like to know who else saw the documents while they were in Berger's home, if he made any phone calls right after returning from the archives, who he called, and whether or not he has been promised a pardon if prosecuted (from Kerry).

I also would like to know how many guards witnessed his behavior, whether they reported it to senior archives people and if those people took any action other than calling Bruce Lindsey, and also if any higher level archives people were Clinton political appointees who were given civil service appointments during the last months of the Clinton administration.

That would certainly not surprise me, but bear in mind that almost all librarians/archivists (who are, after all, in a quasi-academic discipline) are raving left-wing Dems. I suspect that this is probably doubly so in the case of those who work for the government.

Here's a little more info on the National Archives, for your reading pleasure:

You have a point. One would think they would be HONEST, at least, but I realize that is probably a vain hope.

Mr Berger:

*How many years, months, days have you been "inadvertantly" removing documents from top secret areas of the government?
*Why were the documents important enough to steal?
*To whom did you give the information?
*Was that person(s) from the U.S. or from a foreign entity? Did they pay you?
*Do they have your FBI file in their possession?
*Were you/or are you being blackmailed?
*How many other Clinton traitors are in positions of authority?

Am I leading the witness? :P

"clairify"

That one obviously went over your head, so forget it.

That one's simple. They won't 'off' him or his family if he plays sacrificial lamb.
