Curiouser and curiouser
By Tom Smith
The documents that Berger has acknowledged taking -- some of which remain missing -- are different drafts of a January 2000 "after-action review" of how the government responded to terrorism plots at the turn of the millennium. The document was written by White House anti-terrorism coordinator Richard A. Clarke, at Berger's direction when he was in government.
This from WaPo. This fits the Smith hypothesis. Maybe somebody should ask Clarke under oath whether earlier drafts contained tougher language on the Clinton administration's performance.
Update: NYT protects us from getting the wrong idea.
