The Obvious Answer

I scratched my head all morning wondering why anyone would talk about this Sandy Berger story.  Liberal Webblogger Josh Marshall has the lowdown.  The whole thing is a non-communist plot.
 
According to Marshall,
 
However, it seems equally clear that the surfacing of this matter is the product of a malicious leak intended to distract attention from the release of the 9/11 commission report.
 
The Horror!  Why would any Waskely-Wepublican do a bad, bad thing like that?
 
The most obvious, and probably the only, explanation of this leak is that it is intended to distract attention from the release of the 9/11 report due later this week. That would be yet another example of this administration's common practice of using the levers of executive power (law enforcement, declassification, etc.) for partisan purposes.
 
That whole explanation of Sandy Berger looking suspicious because he had an entire ream of Top Secret documents jammed down his BVDs just doesn't cut any ice when the perceptive Josh Marshall takes the case....

"Reciprocals"

As you may or may not already be aware, members of the Watcher's Council hold a vote every week on what they consider to be the most link-worthy pieces of writing around... per the Watcher's instructions, I am submitting one of my own posts for consideration in the upcoming nominations process.
Here is the most recent winning council post, here is the most recent winning non-council post, here is the list of results for the latest vote, and here is the initial posting of all the nominees that were voted on.
