9/11 Conspiracy Theorists Studiously Ignore Sandy Berger

The brilliant researchers known as "9/11 Truthers" are only the most recent of a long line of conspiracy-theorists. The Truthers contend that the government -- who, by the way, can't even conspire to fix the Alternative Minimum Tax -- somehow pulled off the most complicated logistical scam in history. And then kept it utterly secret.

Never mind that Popular Mechanics and its team of 70 military, engineering, and academic experts utterly debunked their whacked-out theories. And never mind that the New York Times can't keep from publishing every classified leak it comes across.

The oddest part? There was a real conspiracy related to 9/11.

Former National Security Advisor Sandy Berger absconded with all sorts of classified documents, the full inventory of which will likely never be known. Why did Berger steal multiple copies of the same document? And did he also make off with original, uninventoried materials?

CNN reports that the Chairman of the House Government Reform Committee stated, "There is absolutely no way to determine if Berger swiped... original documents. Consequently, there is no way to ever know if the 9/11 Commission received all required materials..."

What the heck was he covering up? Now there's a conspiracy!

Helloooooo, 9/11 Truthers! Helloooo? Anyone? Bueller?
