7. Take this for what it's worth

It reads as follows:
THE WALL STREET JOURNAL is reporting today that Sandy Berger has been cleared of any suspicion of withholding documents from the 9/11 Commission. (subscription required)
Archives spokeswoman Susan Cooper said officials there "are confident that there aren't any original documents missing in relation to this case." She said in most cases, Mr. Berger was given photocopies to review, and that in any event officials have accounted for all originals to which he had access.

This would appear to lay to rest any theories that Berger was attempting to hide potentially embarrassing information from the commission, which released its final report last week.

An investigation into Bergers improper handling of highly classified material, including copies of the Millennium plot after-action report, remains open.
Mr. Berger's lawyer has said his client returned all of the photocopies after he was questioned about missing items by archives staff. But officials have said they are still looking into whether some of the photocopies may have been destroyed. It is illegal to remove classified material in any form from the archives.
No charges have yet been filed.

Now, in my opinion, if some other media source would follow up on this, it would be very very helpful. I have to wonder though, why Berger himself has not been doing the Sunday show circuit to jubilantly herald his innocence.
