Where Is The "Berger-Gate" Outrage?

If there are those still out there (like the Reverend Wright and most of Hollywood) that truly believe that 9/11 was an "inside job"...shouldn't they have made a MUCH bigger deal over the documents Sandy Berger stuffed in his underpants so the 9/11 Commission wouldn't see them? If you honestly believed the government had a hand in masterminding the murder of it's own citizens...doesn't a former National Security Advisor stealing classified documents seem like a red flag you'd be bringing serious attention to? Unless of course you were jut engaging in political posturing against the current administration...

Now the conspiracy theory pot thickens...

"...The William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Library will not make available to the public the documents that former National Security Advisor Sandy Berger illegally took from the National Archives in 2003.

A letter from the library said the total 502 pages from the Millennium Alert After Action Review (MAAR) are "restricted in their entirety," under federal law and that the documents are "classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy."

Further, the library stated the documents contain "confidential communications requesting or submitting advice between the president and his advisors, or between such advisors."

The library's letter was in response to a Freedom of Information Act request from Cybercast News Service . The library has responded to several other requests, but in those cases it was to inform that library staff was processing the request..." (source)

Now I'm not an the-American-Government-did-it conspiracy theorist --I'm more of an Islamists-want-to-conquer-the-world-and-make-me-wear-a-burqa conspiracy person. But I imagine if I were the former, I'd be intellectually honest enough to be making a really big deal over finding out the contents of these pilfered documents...
