Berger, end of story

As they say in a military barber shop, Next? (updated link)

"President Clinton's national security adviser, Sandy Berger -- who'd been accused of stealing classified material from the National Archives -- has been cleared of all wrongdoing.

The National Archives and the Justice Department have concluded nothing is missing and nothing in the Clinton administration's record was withheld from the 9-11 Commission.

The Wall Street Journal reports archives staff have accounted for all classified documents Berger looked at.

Late last year they asked investigators to see if the former national security adviser removed materials during his visits.

Berger's lawyers said his client had inadvertently removed several photocopies of reports, but later returned them."

Now, on with the show!

Update: First link has rotted. Repaired link is to the WSJ via The American Prospect. Maybe that one will hold.

Funny your link is broken now, and no other news agency is reporting on it. Seems to hold as much truth to him stuffing documents in his socks. Try again please.

He is not cleared. It was a false report.

I don't subscribe to the Wall Street Journal so maybe one of you folks that do can check it out. The American Prospect has the Journal article quoted. TAPPED hasn't issued a retraction so I suspect that the Journal hasn't either.
