WASHINGTON – Former national security adviser Sandy Berger, who helped craft President Bill Clinton’s second-term foreign policy and later
got in trouble convicted of a felony over mishandling removing and destroying classified documents [that implicated the Clinton administration in 9/11], has died.
Berger died Wednesday. He was 70 years old and in ill health.
The cause of death was not immediately available [cancer].
Berger was White House national security adviser from 1997 to 2001 [in the run up to 9/11].
