InstaPundit summarizes where we are in the Sandy Berger scandal, which hasn't gotten nearly the attention it deserves. In Glenn's words:
So Berger stole, and destroyed, classified documents as part of a
politically motivated coverup. Let's just be clear about that. Criminal
penalties, aside, the man's career in public life should be over, and he
certainly should never have access to classified documents again. Unfortunately,
the penalty he'll actually receive looks rather light -- certainly lighter than
most folks who stole and destroyed classified documents would undergo. That
makes it all the more important that the details of his misbehavior get plenty
of attention, and that they're remembered long-term.
Just how much information has been lost to history because of this brazen act?
