A new security breach at the National Archives is reminiscent of Sandy Berger, former National Security Adviser to President Bill Clinton, who removed documents from the National Archives as the 9/11 Commission conducted investigations. Now there’s a terabyte of data missing in what amounts to another Clinton administration whodunit.
Rep. Darrel Issa (R-Calif.) issued a statement Tuesday calling for National Archives and Administration acting archivist Adrienne Thomas to appear before an Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee on Thursday to answer questions regarding the loss of a hard drive containing national security information and other Clinton Administration records.
No one will ever really know what Berger took in 2003 when he did the cloak and dagger routine, allegedly removing documents related to millennium terror threats. But there is some information about what’s currently missing and the news is not good.
