Pickering is a joke. He didn't even interview Hillary. Which shocked even liberal interviewers since she was a key player in getting the answers which he was commissioned to do.
Pickering is going to be called to testify soon. It should get interesting.
You're attacking a career U S foreign service officer with 40 years experience. "Ambassador Thomas Pickering served more than four decades as a U.S. diplomat. He last served as under secretary of state for political affairs, the third highest post in the U.S. State Department. Pickering also served as ambassador to the United Nations, the Russian Federation, India, Israel, and Jordan, and holds the personal rank of Career Ambassador."

They were copies Carol, even the prosecutors in the case said they were copies. When you get documents from the National Archives you get copies, never the originals which are retained on file.
Why destroy them? Because even a copy of a classified document is classified you clueless twit!
Nancy Kegan Smith, who directs the Archives' presidential documents staff and let Berger view the documents, said "she would NEVER KNOW know what IF ANY ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS were missing."

It was simply asserted and widely accepted they were "just copies". It was never determined if any originals were taken.

But, once again, your hypocrisy is on display. If a Bush advisor had "mistakingly" taken "copies" of classified documents from the Archives during a 9/11 investigation, you'd be singing a whole different song and the shrill would hurt our ears.

Any top official in any administration would know classified documents - copies or otherwise - cannot be taken from the National Archives. No one makes that kind of "mistake".

City’s Emergency Office 'Failed'
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, a New Orleans Police captain, Timothy P. Bayard, prepared an internal report assessing the role played by his city's Office of Emergency Preparedness. He introduced the report to investigators by saying: "The New Orleans Office of Emergency Preparedness failed. They did not prepare themselves, nor did they manage the city agencies responsible for conducting emergency response to the disaster. Their function was to coordinate with state, federal and other local agencies, to enlist logistical assistance. We did not coordinate with any state, local or federal agencies. We were not prepared logistically. Most importantly, we relocated evacuees to two locations where there was no food, water or portable restrooms. We did not implement the pre-existing plan. We did not utilize buses that would have allowed us to transport mass quantities of evacuees expeditiously. We did not have food, water or fuel for the emergency workers. We did not have a back up communication system. We had no portable radio towers or repeaters that would have enabled us to communicate. The other mistakes have been mentioned previously."

So, it proves that Bush43 WASN"T prepared for the extreme magnitude of Category 5 Hurricane Katrina (even though he was getting frequent updated reports from Brownie's FEMA that the hurricane was getting stronger as it moved directly towards New Orleans. Bush43 chose to ignore the reports like he ignored the pre-9/11 terrorism warnings from the Clinton Administration.

The 9/11 Commission final report.

“The US government was utterly unprepared on Sept. 11, 2001, to protect the American people from al-Qaeda terrorists.” The report itself states,“We believe the 9/11 attacks revealed four kinds of failures: in imagination, policy, capabilities, and management.”

The report was much gentler on the Bush administration and rather than focus criticism on the Bush administration, the commission spread the blame broadly and evenly across two administrations, the FBI and Congress.”

Of course, liberals carefully select the facts they choose to believe.

You got it backwards. Republicans are backing austerity measures in U S that has caused so much damage and unrest in the European economies. Luckily, we have strong leadership in the White House that's been holding at bay most of the republicans extremist austerity ideas.

Perhaps you just don't know the facts. I'll assume through no fault of your own.

97th Congress (1981-1983)
Senate: 53(R); 46(D); 1(other)
House: 242(D); 189(R)

98th Congress (1983-1985)
Senate: 54(R); 46(D)
House: 268(D); 167(R)

99th Congress (1985-1987)
Senate: 53(R); 47 (D)
House: 253 (D); 182(R)

100th Congress (1987-1989)
Senate: 55(D); 45(R)
House: 258 (D); 177 (R)

In fact, Democrats controlled the house from 1981 to 1989 throughout the entire Reagan administration.

So no more excuses.

Then there was a report of our vulnerability that was put together by a Clinton appointed commission that went to give their report to Bush in early 2001. Bush refused to meet with them & threw their report on the Trash.

Instead Bush set up his own commission co-chaired by his campaign manager that would have met the first time in late September of 1001.

Who knows if Bush would have taken that report seriously?

Carol don't give a rap about that.

"A Shock, Not a Surprise
The 9/11 attacks were a shock, but they should not have come as a surprise. Islamist extremists had given plenty of warning that they meant to kill Americans indiscriminately and in large numbers. Although Usama Bin Ladin himself would not emerge as a signal threat until the late 1990s, the threat of Islamist terrorism grew over the decade." ... "The 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were far more elaborate, precise, and destructive than any of these earlier assaults. But by September 2001, the executive branch of the U.S. government, the Congress, the news media, and the American public had received clear warning that Islamist terrorists meant to kill Americans in high numbers."..."As late as September 4, 2001, Richard Clarke, the White House staffer long responsible for counterterrorism policy coordination, asserted that the government had not yet made up its mind how to answer the question: "Is al Qaida a big deal?"

A week later came the answer. " Check this out: http://govinfo.library.unt.edu/911/report/911...
