Taking Heat for North Korea Errors, GOP Says: Probe Clinton Official!
Taking Heat for North Korea Errors, GOP Says: Probe Clinton Official!
By Paul Kiel - October 12, 2006

Why are Republicans now calling for the investigation of a three year-old incident involving a Clinton-era official that's already been settled? As a senior Democrat points out, their call came just one day after that official, Sandy Berger, criticized the Bush administration's North Korea policy on Fox News.

In 2003, Sandy Berger, the former National Security Advisor to President Clinton, took classified documents from the National Security Archives. That's illegal. The Justice Department investigated the matter, and prosecuted Berger on a misdemeanor charge. In April 2005, Berger pleaded guilty to one charge of unauthorized removal and retention of classified material.

Yesterday -- eighteen months after that case ended -- 10 House Republicans suddenly called for a House investigation of the same incident.
