"Berger and his lawyer said last night he knowingly removed handwritten notes he had made while reading classified antiterror documents he reviewed at the archives by sticking them in his jacket and pants. He also inadvertently took copies of actual classified documents in a leather portfolio, they said." - Boston Globe
