Does This Explain Berger's Behavior?

Well, here's a huge story that the MSM won't want to touch. At least not until they can conjure up some insane angle on it that will somehow make it Bush's fault.

I never cease to be amazed that the same media that continues to give Cindy Sheehan wall-to-wall coverage, and help her promulgate the lie that the president hasn't met with her, is so incurious about the fecklessness of the Clinton administration, and Sandy Burglar's reckless acts.

I should add that I've never been able to be as impressed with the "bipartisan" 911 Commission as the press wanted me to be. When Jamie Gorelick wasn't required to recuse herself on those things being investigated in which she was directly involved, it lost all credibility with me. The sad thing is all of the legislation that was rushed through on its flawed (and perhaps, as we see now, duplicitous) advice.

[Update at 9:37 AM EDT]

John Podhoretz isn't impressed with the commission, either:

The 9/11 Commission staff did hear about intelligence-gathering efforts that hit pay dirt on the whereabouts of Mohammed Atta -- in 1999 -- and deliberately chose to omit word of those efforts.

And why? Because to do so might upset the timeline the Commission had established on Atta.

And why is that significant? Because the Mohammed Atta timeline established by the Commission pointedly insisted Atta did not meet with an Iraqi intelligence agent in Prague.

And why is that significant? Because debunking the Atta-Iraq connection was of vital importance to Democrats, who had become focused almost obsessively on the preposterous notion that there was no relation whatever between Al Qaeda and Iraq -- that Al Qaeda and Iraq might even have been enemies.

Huh? All I see is one blogger speculating that Berger knew about this and that is why he covered it up. But that's all it is--speculation, and idle speculation at that.

As for the MSM not covering the Able Danger angle, the AP covered it on Wednesday:

The Washington Post also has a few other articles on it, as does the NY Times (search their websites). Considering that the story just came out this week (and it is August), I suggest waiting a little longer.

"incurious about the fecklessness of the Clinton administration, and Sandy Burglar's reckless acts."-RS

"As for the MSM not covering the Able Danger angle"- Sheik Jeff

I notice you ignore the media conspiracy with Berger. You know that patriot Fawn Hall recieved much more hostile attention than the evil Berger, yet you still conspire to help the coverup, Jeff.

Of course they're going to cover Fawn Hall more than Sandy Berger. She's got better tits.

I liked Fawn Hall. Why don't you like attractive women, Norden?
