Does President Bush believe for one second he would get this treatment?

If he does he's nuts. Let's say that, God forbid, a Democrat takes office in 2009 and a member of the Bush team gets caught stealing and destroying classified documents. There will be a call for a public execution, instead the Bush justice department is perfectly happy to let Sandy Berger off with a slap on the wrist.

“My staff’s investigation reveals that President Clinton’s former National Security Advisor Sandy Berger compromised national security much more than originally disclosed,” Davis said. “It is now also clear that Mr. Berger was willing to go to extraordinary lengths to compromise national security, apparently for his own convenience.

“The 9/11 Commission relied on incomplete and misleading information regarding its access to documents Mr. Berger reviewed. No one ever told the Commission that Mr. Berger had access to original documents that he could have taken without detection.

“We now know that Mr. Berger left stolen highly classified documents at a construction site to avoid detection. We know that Mr. Berger insisted on privacy at times to allow him to conceal documents that he stole. One witness with a very high security clearance believed he saw Berger concealing documents in his socks.

One of the worst parts of this is that we don't have the first clue what was really taken and destroyed and it's hard to find the government's eye witness very credible.

“The Justice Department’s assertion that Mr. Berger’s statements are credible after being caught is misplaced. One wouldn’t rely on the fox to be truthful after being nabbed in the hen house. But the Justice Department apparently did.”
