#UK Sandy Berger, ex-Clinton national security adviser, dies

//

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former national security adviser Sandy Berger, who helped craft President Bill Clinton’s second-term foreign policy and got in trouble over mishandling classified documents, died Wednesday, a spokesman for his consulting firm said.

He was 70 and in ill health.

The cause of death was not immediately available.

Berger was White House national security adviser from 1997 to 2001, including a period when the Clinton administration carried out airstrikes in Kosovo and against Saddam Hussein’s forces in Iraq. Berger also was deeply involved in the administration’s push for free trade.

In 2005, Berger pleaded guilty to illegally removing classified documents from the National Archives by stuffing some documents down his pants. He was sentenced to probation and a $50,000 fine. He expressed regret for his actions.

Out of government, he helped found the firm now known as the Albright Stonebridge Group, where he most recently held the title of chair, along with former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.
