Samuel R. "Sandy" Berger, national security advisor under President Clinton, was fined $50,000 for taking classified documents from the National Archives. U.S. Magistrate Judge Deborah Robinson handed down the punishment in federal court, stiffening the $10,000 fine recommended by government lawyers. Under the deal, Berger avoids prison time, but he must surrender access to classified government materials for three years.

The March 1 paper refers to the Clinton administration's team supporting its Iraq policy as the "ABC" team, referring to [Madeleine] Albright, [Samuel R.] Berger and [William S.] Cohen. It seems to me that in dealing with the American public as well as their other comments on the policy, ABC should stand for Arrogant, Brazen and Contemptuous. With Indonesia, the world's fourth most populous nation, now reneging on commitments made to receive massive loans in the recent bailout, and with President Suharto staging the vote for his seventh term rather than stepping down (at age 76)

On the April 2 front page was a non-story about former national security advisor Samuel R. "Sandy" Berger, "Top Clinton Aide Admits He Pilfered Documents" -- a criminal case that was politically driven by the GOP to embarrass a Clinton appointee. The Times says that Berger "pilfered" documents. But the main point was buried: The documents were available to the 9/11 commission. Marilyn Levin Los Angeles It is amazing to me that Berger admitted that he stole classified documents, destroyed some, lied about it and the recommendation for sentencing is only a fine and being stripped of his security clearance for three years.
