Berger Pleads Guilty to Taking Materials

I thought it would be enlightening to remember some other Sandy Berger Quotes from the past:

“I inadvertently took a few documents”

"I deeply regret the sloppiness involved, but I had no intention of withholding documents from the commission, and to the contrary, to my knowledge, every document requested by the commission from the Clinton administration was produced," 2004

"To me the great danger is the complacency we have fallen into three and half years after 9-11." 2005

“Mr. Clinton gave the CIA "every inch of authorization that it asked for" to carry out plans to kill Osama bin Laden.” 2004

“I believe the next administration will need to build on what we've done - to take a systematic, sustained, long-term effort to render this international network a far lesser threat to the United States… More people have been killed by bin Laden and his network - more Americans - than all of the wars since Vietnam.” 2001

"The only answer to aggression and outlaw behaviour is firmness. . . He (Saddam) will rebuild his arsenal of weapons of mass destruction and some day, some way, I am certain he will use that arsenal again, as he has 10 times since 1983." 1998

“Its difficult to know exactly, because they are not being inspected… But the scattered evidence arriving sadly shows that they’re back in business, that they’re seeking to extend the range of their missiles, that they’ve recalled the nuclear weapons design team, (and) that they rebuilt the buildings in which chemical and biological warfare substances have been made.” 1998

And he’s not going to see one day of time. Many people are currently serving very long prison sentences for the same offense. And of course I have to take my usual slap at the Associated Press. Here was a July 2004 headline…
