I think this has been going on for nine months... not weeks. I question whether there really is a "timing" thing. Unfortunately, this story will be a non issue once the Democratic convention comes around. But Berger isn't an idiot. He did this for a reason. This guy was the National Security advisor. It's not that he "should have known better." He does know better. So either he's a complete fool who shouldn't have been appointed in the first place or he's up to no good. Kinda makes you wonder how "nationally secure" we were with this guy leading the charge.
