Sandy Burglar gets off easy

Sandy Berger's slap in the wrist misdemeanor guilty plea for destroying Clinton administration documents regarding the terrorism threat in the US is pretty outrageous. And on top of that, he now admits he lied about misplacing the documents; he actually shredded them. Whether he was destroying incriminating margin notes or he thought he was destroying the only copies of the documents, we will never know. As I said here before, as pointed out so well by Dick Morris, it is due to the terrible lapses in counter-terrorism during the Clinton years, that these problems have arisen for Bush to deal with.

Maybe we should call him Sandy Burglar. And he was widely assumed to be Kerry's choice for Secretary of State. Such is the caliber of top officials we avoided on November 2 of last year.
