Skip to comments.A 'Bergler" Steals Clinton's Credibility
Posted on 10/13/2007 1:13:34 AM PDT by JohnHuang2
When Bill and Hillary Clinton did their online "Sopranos" spoof after the HBO show's finale, they may have been trying to tell us something more than we realized. The Clintons, sans the New Jersey accent, subtly yet unmistakably were announcing: "We and our posse are back. Burglars and all."
In fairness to the Clintons, Samuel R. "Sandy" Berger is just one burglar, but when we're talking about national-security information, a single thief is all you need to question a candidate's credibility. That the Hillary Clinton campaign would even take Berger's phone calls, never mind hold him close as an adviser, is an outrage. Moreover, it's a bright-red, screeching siren signaling a huge judgment problem on Sen. Clinton's part.
Berger, you may recall, was Bill Clinton's national security adviser. Now Hillary Clinton is trying to sock it to you by employing him as her campaign foreign-policy adviser, treating Berger like a respectable foreign-policy expert -- exactly what he ceased to be when he was a common criminal heisting classified documents from the National Archives in 2003.
While preparing the former President Clinton for his 9/11 Commission testimony (as well as preparing his own), Berger stole top-secret national-defense documents from the National Archives, stuffing them in a briefcase and in his clothing.

I’d like to believe that most Americans, seeing the return of the Clinton gang, will drop their support for her, but I’m too old and too cynical. I believe that the more HRC’s future administration looks like her husband’s, the stronger her support from the media-drunk Americans who have been brought up with liberal brainwashing in the public school system and on the tube.
When you ignore those red flags, you pay the price.
The people who support the Klintoons are blind to their corruption. They did not care about it when they were soiling the White House and its sinks, and they certainly aren't going to start caring now.
Worse yet in this particular instance with Berger, the Bush administration destroyed any chance of making this an issue because they let Berger get away with it. Of course, the real reason why Berger should be rotting in jail forever is what he did, but it also wouldn't hurt politically for him to be there. Instead, Berger is walking free and getting his clearance back in time to work again for the Klintoons, all thanks to the new tone in Washington that continues to bite us all in the behind.
I was about to write that Republicans shouldn't even bother with Berger and should concentrate on beating Her Heinous on the issues, but then it occurred to me: I'd be happy if the Republicans—not us, but the Republican party bigwigs and big mouths—spent all the time between now and the election hammering away solely on the issue of the poor placement of the White House tulips during the Klintoon years. Why? Because it would mean that they would actually be putting effort into something against the RATS, and the head RATS in particular, than the usual Marcel Marceau routine they do in a locked room deep underground with the lights turned off.
burglar is a lock for the secretary of state job. he must be rewarded for his pant leg episode.
Berger probably has enough on the Clintons to bury them, if they don't bury him first. They will avoid angering Berger.
I happen to think it was related to TWA-800.
This is almost enough to make one wonder if all the documents he stole were in reference to the Slickmeister, or if there were some pieces of lint that might have tarnished the Harpy’s sweet, lovable image.
Berger and the Clintons are corruption co-dependents.
How much money did Berger make on trade with China?
I think the National Archives should be able to tell you exactly what he took out of the files. Their job is to document things. They have a record of everything that was in the files.
To libs like the Clintons Sandy Burglars transgressions probably seem minor. I’m sure they’re thinking to themselves “So Sandy stole some stuff. So what??? All us libs do that.We all betray our country to cover our posteriors. Big Deal.Why are Republicans so concerned about this integrity business.
??!!? Don’t impose your false values of integrity and morality on us you busybody bluenoses!!!!”
Any party that accepts a crook like Al Sharpton and a far-left nutcase like Dennis Kucinich as legitimate prez candidates will tolerate anybody so long as it helps them gain what they crave the most...POWER!!!
Seems like a logical conclusion, doesn't it? If they won't, that is very suspect, and if they can't, that reveals glaring incompetence.
My suspicion is that the Bush administration, for reasons known only to them, swept the whole thing under the table and greased the wheels for Sandy's token punishment.
If the only thing he stole was a recipe for bunt cake, Bergler should have had his security status permanently revoked. The fact that he gets it back in a few years smells beyond bad.
And not to sound tin foil hat-ish, but I can find no logical way to explain away his light sentence other than the (deliberate) influence of this administration, in some fashion.
Actually, Hillary’s credibility is so low that the Bergler gives her credibility.
Don’t forget the hundreds or maybe even thousands of raw FBI background files that Craig “I don’t know who hired me” Livingstone got. Because they were in the White House, those files are now part of Clinton’s Presidential Papers.
