So Sandy Berger has admitted that he "inadvertently" took some classified documents from the National Archive. He also said that it was an honest mistake to remove handwritten notes by shoving them down his trousers.

Perhaps inadvertently should read "deliberately" and honest mistake should be "definitely stole". Can anyone really seriously believe for an instant that a former national security advisor didn't know that he was not permitted to remove these documents? Is that why he "accidentally on purpose" put them in a briefcase and down his trousers?

I find it hard to believe that a year is the maximum sentence for committing this crime- I'd have thought that in an effort to improve security there would be the deterrent of a much stiffer sentence.

I like the way too that the news article ends with a little jab at Bush- of course it's his fault that Berger is going to be charged with breaking the law.
