9/11: The Sandy Berger Caper — Theft Of Top Secret Documents From National Archives

The Sandy Berger Caper Report

(37 minutes)  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjUpOYuXP4Q

Samuel Richard "Sandy" Berger (who died in December 2015) was National Security Advisor in the Clinton administration after having served as Arkansas governor Clinton's senior foreign policy advisor during the 1992 presidential campaign. Sandy Berger first met Bill Clinton in 1972; he was a member of the Quill and Dagger society (Cornell University's version of Yale's Skull and Bones) with Paul Wolfowitz and Stephen Hadley (currently a potential candidate for Secretary of Defense in the Trump administration).

In 2002 and 2003, Berger visited the National Archives in Washington D.C. on several occasions and was 'allowed' to steal and destroy highly classified documents relating to the Clinton administration's national security and terrorism policies during the late 1990s. The 9/11 Commission, in progress during the time of Berger's document thefts, neglected to ask look in to the matter of his illegal activities and destruction of information directly relating to 9/11 and the Commission's own investigation. The Bush administration Justice Department also minimized the significance of Berger's illegal activities with classified information and refused to fully investigate him.

Berger was stripped of his U.S. national security clearance for 3 years, given a $50,000 fine and two years' probation as 'wrist slap' punishment for his guilty misdemeanor plea. On May 17, 2007, Berger voluntarily relinquished his license to practice law as a result of the investigation; by giving up his license, Berger avoided cross-examination by the Bar Counsel regarding details of his thefts.

A few National Archives and Records Administration employees were reportedly given written reprimands concerning errors that failed to prevent Berger's smuggling of top secret documents out of the Archives, but these reprimands were later erased from these NARA employees' personnel files.

'Socks, Scissors, Paper: The Sandy Berger Caper'
Questions Probe of Theft at the National Archives
reporter: David Asman

Samuel Richard "Sandy" Berger (who died in December 2015) was a former State Department employee with the Carter administration in the 1970s. He first met Bill Clinton in 1972 on the McGovern presidential campaign.

Berger was a member of the Quill and Dagger society (Cornell University's version of Yale's Skull and Bones) with Paul Wolfowitz and Stephen Hadley (currently a potential candidate for Secretary of Defense in the Trump administration).

Berger later became National Security Advisor in the Clinton administration after having served as Arkansas governor Clinton's senior foreign policy advisor during the 1992 presidential campaign.

In 2002 and 2003, Berger visited the National Archives in Washington D.C. on several occasions and was 'allowed' to steal and destroy highly classified documents, most of which appear to relate to the Clinton administration's national security and terrorism policies during the late 1990s. The 9/11 Commission, which was in progress during the time of Berger's document thefts, neglected to ask about or look in to the matter of his illegal activities and destruction of information directly relating to 9/11 and the Commission's own investigation. The Bush administration Justice Department also minimized the significance of Berger's illegal activities with classified information and refused to fully investigate him.

Berger was stripped of his U.S. national security clearance for 3 years, given a $50,000 fine and two years' probation as 'wrist slap' punishment for his guilty misdemeanor plea. On May 17, 2007, Berger voluntarily relinquished his license to practice law as a result of the investigation; by giving up his license, Berger avoided cross-examination by the Bar Counsel regarding details of his thefts.

A few National Archives and Records Administration employees were reportedly given written reprimands concerning errors that failed to prevent Berger's smuggling of top secret documents out of the Archives, but these reprimands were later erased from these NARA employees' personnel files.
