Skip to comments.Sandy Berger: What Did He Take and Why Did He Take It?(Sandy Burglar)
Posted on 01/15/2007 7:33:10 AM PST by kellynla
Some things cry out for explanation. Like finding $90,000 in marked bills in a Congressman's freezer. Or finding out that a blue-chip lawyer who held one of the most important jobs in the nation was willing to risk his career, his livelihood, and his liberty to steal, hide, and destroy classified documents.
We all have a pretty good idea what the money was doing in Representative William Jefferson's freezer. But the questions about President William Jefferson Clinton's National Security Adviser, Sandy Berger, just keep piling up.
It's time we got some answers.

Fat Sandy will never serve a day behind bars because he is covered by the Clinton "J.Edgar Hoover" insurance policy.
"Honey, I knew those F.B.I. files would come in handy."
Why the huge difference in prosecution of Scooter Libby and Sandy Berger under the Republican watch?
This is yet another example of why America is in free fall on it's way to being a minor power, a la Great Britain.
Everyone knows Berger did something outrageous. Worse than Nixon's Watergate. Yet the media has no desire to press this because it would damage their party, and Clinton's legacy. So, it dies from lack of interest.
To compound this, most Republicans lack the spine necessary to push an issue that the MSM and Democrats want to die.
A country can't function properly with such corruption.
And what did Clinton(s) know and when did he/they know it???
The guy will never be held accountable and the secrets he destroyed will never be known except to the Clintons.
***To compound this, most Republicans lack the spine necessary to push an issue that the MSM and Democrats want to die. *******
I would say ALL Republicans lack the spine.
Burglar was rushed to make his guilty plea and get a light sentence toclose down this case with double Jeopardy. Probably the best plea bargain ever given. Surely there must be some aditional charge they could bring Berger up on,if someone had the courage to push it.
I think we all know what it was done for. He was sent there by Clinton to clean up the mess. Clinton belongs in jail not touring the country making millions.
The media does not want to cover this story.
They do not want to speculate about it like they do anything Republican.
For example, the papers which contained handwritten notes in the margins, MIGHT have had Clinton stating that we should not take out Osama Bin Laden because we cut a deal with him...no more terrorism and we will let him live.... we don't know and we never will.
The accumulated outrages of the past several administrations and congresses --- will surely and soon cause the appearance of a "star chamber"...
Hopefully, it will "try and convict" and sentence to "sanctions with extreme prejudice"........those animals among us who are "more equal than others."
In a sane world.......the "system" should work..
In our insane world, it isn't..
Excellent summation. This indeed seems to be the fate of the United States. We may be on our way to becoming inconsequential, or worse yet, conquered and dominated.
That, in a nutshell, is the precise reason we have the current circumstance.
It's time we got some answers.
Never, not now, not ever. It is living in the movie "Devil's Advocate". It stinks to high heaven, acquital after acquital, the ultimate back stage pass, attorneys, guns blazing, etc etc etc.
"Why the huge difference in prosecution of Scooter Libby and Sandy Berger under the Republican watch?"
Because one is a Leftie covered by a "J.Edgar Hoover" insurance policy and the other a Rightie
"the Powerful protect the powerful".
It's all about self preservation you know.
Yes, I think the real evidence that the administration is only playing at war is the Berger incident.
Burglar should be surreptiously whisked off the street, piled into a black van, and taken to an environment which would be, how you say, conducive to his telling all.
If those documents were ever found, the people of this nation would have screamed for Clinton and Gore to get the death penalty.
The apathy of the electorate on this is stunning, imo. Even here. This post won't reach 90 posts.
Heck. I can answer that and it won't cost millions of dollars and thousands of hours of FBI gumshoe time and head-scratching only to shrug my confused shoulders...
What? - Top Secret records
Why? - To destroy them and cover up for his own and Bubba's criminal negligence/purposes in ignoring deadly threats to America so they wouldn't get exposed by the 9/11 Commission
There. That was quick and easy, wasn't it? I won't even bill the government for my valuable time!
The stolen documents are worth a ton of money which is the primary reason for the theft. How many copies did burglar make and how many did he sell. I suspect millions were involved.
I wonder if Buckhead has skills beyond typefaces and proportional spacing...
The cover up is to keep peoples faith in our government. I believe Washington feels it's better we don't know how far Clinton, the President of the United States, was willing to go for that kind of power. Clinton does not represent presidents of the past nor of the present. He was a criminal, dictatorial fluke that managed to deceive a nation.
Remember, the left always accuses the right of doing what it itself is doing. They scream "Bush knew." That is an indication I'm right. They knew.
A left wing attack is a mirror of the left itself. It always is and always has been.
I have no doubt that what you say is closer to the truth.
But I differ entirely on your conclusion.
Exposing the Clinton administration and the anti-American Democrats sycophants would and could prevent them from ever holding power.
The consequences directly affect me, my family, my friends and for that someone will pay.
Marcus Tullius Cicero - Roman Statesman
Speech in the Roman Senate - 42 BC
A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.
To this day, 7 years later, they still despise George Bush for taking away their ultimate power and glory. He destroyed the plan of a life time. They'll never forgive him for it.
I hope you're wrong about this. fh
(1) Berger was on-duty when top-secret US technology was sold to China.
(2) Berger was on-duty when the US bombed the aspirin factory; lamebrain Berger advised Clinton it was manufacturing deadly chemicals.
(3) Berger was on-duty during Somolia, and Kosovo, and Hatti, and all the other wonderful military success stories of the Clinton administration.
(4) And then there's the infamous Clinton pardons Berger aided and abetted, and did nothing to stop. Mark Rich was and is the biggest tax cheat in US history, who absconded, then renounced his US citizenship to evade prosecution.
(5) Clinton also pardoned 16 terrorists---members of the FALN---- so Hillary could get Latino votes for her Senate run in NY's large Puerto Rican population. The Armed Forces of National Liberation (FALN) was involved in more than 100 bombings in the United States during the 1970s and 1980s." Berger did nothing to stop it.
(6) And let's not forget the bombing of the Chinese embassy.
(7) Remember when then-Pres Clinton went to Norfolk making a "solemn promise" to the families, friends and shipmates of the USS Cole to avenge their deaths. But when the opportunity presented itself, he squandered it. Clinton flunky, Berger, conveniently blamed the misstep on the Pentagon.
As if anyone in the Pentagon would pass up the chance to avenge the sailors of the USS Cole.
Berger stole classified security documents because he knows revelations about his activities as Clinton's National Security Adviser would expose him as a complete incompetent..........or worse.
Berger is apparently covering-up and shredding crucial info that reflects upon US national security failures, and possibly unauthorized transfers of classified info to foreign countries.
It's chilling for patriots to read that Berger was a "workaholic" as Clinton's National Security Adviser----Berger was always seen surrounded with top-secret documents---and he often worked late, when no one was around to see what he was doing.
A study of his Clinton-era phone records and computer emails to see who Berger was talking to should prove interesting. God knows how much info Berger stole then, where he hid it, and where it ended up.
Except their star is tarnished.
"The apathy of the electorate on this is stunning, imo. Even here. This post won't reach 90 posts."
Well the WSJ editorial I posted Saturday on Berger hit 133 Posts & over 1,980 hits.
But the fact that the Left controls & has the backing of the MSM, not to forget my belief that the Clintons have copies of F.B.I. files, does make me believe that Berger won't see one day behind bars.
At this point, all we can do is make sure that another Clinton NEVER darkens the doorway of the Oval Office.
He obviously took something that was very damning to the Clinton presidency. Probably proof of Bill's failure to act when offered Bin Laden by Saudi Arabia.
Thanks for posting the refreshers!
As for why the DoJ let him skate who knows? He even gets his clearance back in 2008. Ahem!
And right you are. The kinder, gentler way of losing most standards that made us great.
Or why Republicans like Delay and others drop out of the House while people like William Jefferson are still in? Its because they are the stupid party. The GOP fights by the Queensbury Rules while the other side is street fighting.
Our democracy depends on choice. If the right were to have ultimate, absolute power, how far would it go?
The politicians have great power, and with great power comes responsibility. Power has a tendency to corrupt. People aren't infallible.
As much as I'd like to see the left gone from the scene forever, there has to be a balance. For example: If it weren't for the Religious right (a restrainer) keeping our moral fabric in check, what kind of nation would we be living in now? How defiled and diseased would the human race become? How far would the right to kill go?
If it weren't for a few necessary programs, how many elderly or disabled people would die from lack of care?
The problem with our system today is 40 years of democrat power. It'll take 40 years of Republican power to bring the nation back to it's original balance and the founders intent. The Republicans wasted their chance by going too far left. They went the wrong direction.
Keep them coming.
Because our elected representatives are not interested in us or this cover-up at all and are scared to provoke The Democrats & Big Media.
...disgusting, isn't it!
Those who see the assassination as a conspiracy were thwarted for a long time because of lack of access to relevant evidence.
They were eventually successful in gainly access to the information ( or most of it) they wanted through the Freedom of Information Act.
Could this work in this case?
Don't Americans have a right to know what happened?
I too am puzzled by the lack of public outrage over this..........it was an infuriating act and a high crime.
