A top Jewish official in the Clinton White House removed classified documents last year from the National Archives while preparing to testify before the Sept. 11 commission. Samuel “Sandy” Berger, who served as national security adviser in President Clinton’s second term, apologized and called the incident accidental. Berger returned the anti-terrorism documents in his possession within a week of learning that they were missing, his lawyers said, according to The New York Times.
