Before snatching documents...

it seems that Sandy Berger was holding the United States back from capturing or attacking al Qaeda - all prior to 9/11, according to an article in the NY Sun.

In other words, according to the commission report, Mr. Berger was presented with plans to take action against the threat of Al Qaeda four separate times Spring 1998, June 1999, December 1999, and August 2000. Each time, Mr. Berger was an obstacle to action. Had he been a little less reluctant to act, a little more open to taking pre-emptive action, maybe the 2,973 killed in the September 11, 2001, attacks would be alive today.

This is interesting because it shows a pattern of failures before Bush came to office that may have directly contributed to Al Qaeda's ability to attack the US. Now, I haven't read the 9/11 Commision's report, but stuff like this is making me consider it seriously...
