WASHINGTON -- President Clinton's national security adviser, Sandy Berger, is the focus of a Justice Department investigation after
removing highly classified terrorism documents and handwritten notes from a secure reading room during preparations for the Sept. 11
commission hearings, The Associated Press has learned.
Berger's home and office were searched earlier this year by FBI agents armed with warrants after he voluntarily returned documents to
the National Archives. However, still missing are some drafts of a sensitive after-action report on the Clinton administration's handling
of al-Qaida terror threats during the December 1999 millennium celebration.

massacre, shows the house of settler Sam Mims, thetents of soldiers
and the fort's east gate that was open the day Creek Indians
massacred hundreds of militia and settlers.
Another map drawn soon after the battle shows the fortified wall built
by Creek Indians at Horseshoe Bend and how U.S. troops surrounded
them in March 1814, when Andrew Jackson's army slaughtered
hundreds of Creeks.

History That's Right Off the Shelf
An eccentric's 2,000-plus photos will make a library stand out
By William Lobdell, Times Staff Writer
Willie McPherson is an unlikely player in the Orange Public Library's ambitious
expansion of its main branch.
First of all, he's been dead for 40 years.
And second, the Orange pioneer was a recluse and packrat who spent his final
years in a two-story house filled with trash, yellowed newspapers, half-eaten
food, memorabilia of all sorts and 10,000 history books — the leather binding of
some eaten by rats.
But McPherson, who died at 79, also left behind more than 2,000 photos he took
throughout the state and the Southwest during the first half of the 20th century.

Fed Disk Debacle's an ILM Cue
Los Alamos National Laboratory, home to one of the nation's more sensitive nuclear weapons facilities, is a
storage networking trendsetter. But that hasn't stopped data from disappearing from the lab's inventory.
The lab this week acknowledged in a public statement that "10 separate pieces of
electronic storage, consisting of nine floppy disks and a single large-capacity storage
disk" were found missing from the lab's Nonproliferation and International Security
Center during routine inventory checks. While at least one of the disks was very old,
and it doesn't look as if any classified data's been compromised, the lab's gone into
