The National Archives

I’m not sure what to make of the Sandy Berger kerfuffle, other than that it’s strange. But Bob Somerby has a pretty good idea:

Meanwhile, add the National Archives to the list of deeply dysfunctional agencies. Apparently, they only keep close watch on their documents after they think that some are missing. Would it kill them to number and monitor documents before they think that some have been swiped? Let’s see—could they actually keep track of the documents a person takes, then make him return them before he leaves? That’s how it works at our public library. Any chance that Archives staff could check out this complex arrangement?
