This is an outrage!


How dare they smear a fine public servant, a loyal Democrat, like Sandy Berger!?! President Clinton *clearly* established the limits of accountability for Party Loyalists. Brief public flogging with wet noodle in public, and fuggeddaboudit.

This is a travesty of Justice:

WASHINGTON, March 31 - Samuel R. Berger, a national security adviser to President Bill Clinton, has agreed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge and give up his security clearance for three years for removing classified material from a government archive, the Justice Department and associates of Mr. Berger's said Thursday.

It only gets worse!

Mr. Berger has also agreed to pay a $10,000 fine as part of an agreement reached recently with the Justice Department after months of quiet negotiations, the associates said.

Thrice-damned Rethuglicans. Well, *there's* cash that won't be going to a charity anymore!

But are they satisfied with this? Nooooo! They make him admit that he actually destroyed documents! Hmmm. He was low on the radar screen some months ago... could it be he was holding these discussions with the Minions of Satan in Gitmo? Abu Ghraib? Amnesty International and the ACLU should visit Mr. Berger and look for scars. Look at this - obviously obtained under duress:

When the issue surfaced last year, Mr. Berger insisted that he had removed the classified material inadvertently. But in the plea agreement reached with prosecutors, he is expected to admit that he intentionally removed copies of five classified documents, destroyed three and misled staff members at the National Archives when confronted about it, according to an associate of Mr. Berger's who is involved in his defense but who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the plea has not been formalized in court.

Go here and read the whole sad story in the sold-it's-soul-to-the-Rethuglicans litter box liner - The New York Times.

As a recovering conservative and former tool of the Illuminati, it would only be appropriate that I lose my clearance for life, pay the fine, and do time. Which I would. But that would be right, because I was wrong to be Right.

See how others of the VRWC are smearing the name of this patriot! That weasel hack academic Shackleford. The small-minded at BlogsofWar. The journo-wannbe at INDC. This fine left-winger is ignoring the issue. Good. Then there's this hag. (note to the Divine Miss M - read closely...) Outside the Beltway bloviates. The Goons at Powerline. That skank SondraK. The follicly challenged. The Whizzer in the Sink. The lost-in-the-woods conservative. Oh, it's just too depressing to continue.
