Oh, My Spinning Head

Joshua Marshal has posted his take on the situation regarding Sandy Berger. He does not directly address the allegation that Berger removed notes and documents from a secure archive. He instead questions the timing, insisting that it was contrived to divert attention away from the report of the 9/11 commission.

So it would seem that if one should discover alleged wrong doing in the form of manipulating evidence to be seen by a commission, then one should wait until the report tainted by the manipulated evidence is released? Now that the whiplash effect has subsided, I can kind of see the reasoning. The 9/11 commission has been such a political farce that the credibility of whatever report it comes up with will be close to nill anyway. What's a few missing documents between slavering packs of jackals friends anyway?
