Berger agrees to guilty plea on removing secret documents

AP via MSNBC:

Former national security adviser Sandy Berger will plead guilty to taking classified documents from the National Archives, the Justice Department said Thursday.

Berger will enter the plea Friday in U.S. District Court in Washington, Justice spokesman Bryan Sierra said.

...

Berger and his lawyer, Lanny Breuer, have said Berger knowingly removed the handwritten notes by placing them in his jacket and pants and inadvertently took copies of actual classified documents in a leather portfolio.

He returned most of the documents, but still missing are some drafts of a sensitive after-action report on the Clinton administration’s handling of al-Qaida terror threats during the December 1999 millennium celebration.
Since Berger has agreed to cooperate witht he government, perhaps we will learn why he took the documents and what he did with those that are still missing. He might also reveal what his concerns were with the taken documents that were not returned.
