REHABBING SANDY BURGLAR ON PBS

Charlie Rose, on PBS, presented the admitted document thief now known as Samuel Berger on his show as a commentator about the war in Iraq. This is the beginning of Berger's media rehabilitation. I was stunned to see him in public for the first time since his media disappearance after the document scandal, with no mention of his disgrace. Mr. Rose gave him quite a bit of time, along with Gen. Brent Scowcroft, debating the strategy in Iraq. All the while, I'm thinking "why doesn't he ask Berger about the documents he stole?" Rose must have promised not to "ambush" him, but he should have, especially after 9/11 was mentioned. This just shows how Democrats who violate national security are given a free pass by the liberal media, at the same time they relentlessly pursue any possibility that a Republican may be involved in exposing a CIA agent who abused her power for political purposes, calling that a violation of national security. If Karl Rove comes on the Charlie Rose show 2 years from now, does anyone doubt that he would be asked about "the leak," regardless of the outcome of the investigation?

Re: Your comment on my blog, crass is crass. Neither comment was appropriate. We are won't agree on many things, but people who use comments, not to further discussion but to further discord, or even more selfishly, simply to drive traffic to their sites, are not beneficial to the blogging community at large. Thanks for taking the time to comment.

Let's see...

Sandy Berger lies to investigators about removing and destroying classified documents and gets a bye from the media and, apparently from the feds as well. (No sentence yet, but the threat is of a slap on the wrist).

Martha Stewart tells the truth (that she had broken no law regarding insider trading) and is charged with obstruction and lying to investigators, convicted on perjured testimony by gummint witness (said witness is now charged by the feds with perjuey for his testomony) and sent to prison.

Hmmm... law selectively enforced is unjust. And when the gummint can solicit perjury, it's perfectly all right... for the gummint agents involved. And for a former administration's official to wittingly break not one but several laws is just hunky dory, too, cos he's just one-a the "in" group, ya know...

Rule of law is dead.

I know. Wasn't Pres. Clinton's reaction typical? HE LAUGHED about how "disorganized" Berger was!

I see you are getting your share of upset people. What did you do? lol.

This is a good post. Why don't you copy/paste it over at our site?

I heard about it, but I don't watch PBS anymore. It was getting too shrill for me.

Good article. We miss you. :)
