Hung Up On Socks

Patterico runs with the Sandy Berger Story:

The New York Post reports:

The criminal probe into why former Bill Clinton aide Sandy Berger illegally sneaked top-secret documents out of the National Archives - possibly in his socks - has heated up and is now before a federal grand jury, The Post has learned.
Well, I guess it's technically true. It's also "possible" the documents were shoved up his rectum. But there's no real evidence of either.

Unless I'm missing something, there has never been any but the most tangential hint of evidence that Berger took documents out of the room in his socks. Wild-eyed Bob Somerby explained back in July 2004.

The Post doesn't do itself any favors with such reporting.

As I noted in his comments section, how Berger smuggled out the documents doesn't matter as much as the fact that he did, and that he destroyed some of them.

If Berger goes to jail for his crimes as he should, then there will be ample opportunity to discuss what is entering and leaving selected Berger orifices.

If you really want too.
