Posted on 08/11/2005 5:16:14 AM PDT by YaYa123
As the 9/11 Commission tries to uncover what kept intelligence agencies from preventing September 11, it has overlooked two vital factors: Jamie Gorelick and Bill Clinton. Gorelick, who has browbeaten the current administration, helped erect the walls between the FBI, CIA and local investigators that made 9/11 inevitable. However, she was merely expanding the policy Bill Clinton established with Presidential Decision Directive 24. What has been underreported is why the policy came about: to thwart investigations into the Chinese funding of Clintons re-election campaign, and the favors he bestowed on them in return.
In April, CNSNews.com staff writer Scott Wheeler reported that a senior U.S. government official and three other sources claimed that the 1995 memo written by Jamie Gorelick, who served as the Clinton Justice Departments deputy attorney general from 1994 to 1997, created "a roadblock" to the investigation of illegal Chinese donations to the Democratic National Committee. But the picture is much bigger than that. The Gorelick memo, which blocked intelligence agents from sharing information that could have halted the September 11 hijacking plot, was only the mortar in a much larger maze of bureaucratic walls whose creation Gorelick personally oversaw.

Thank you for digging up this one.

truth is still truth a year later
The 9-11 Commision was a pre-planned farce.
Thomas Kean, ex RHINO governor from N.J., was enough to give anyone with common sense a clue.
As for Jamie Gorelick ... Should the allegations of what she has done be proven true, she belongs behind bars for treason, along with hundreds of Clinton appointed people.
Thanks for the May 25, 2004 post. A blast from the past.
Once this is substantiated, then what? Is there any court in this land that will summon WJClinton and hold him accountable for his treasonous conduct. Is he royalty? Is there not a judge or an attorney in this land on this?
Thank you for posting this YaYa! I was amazed this morning when Brian Kilmeade on Fox & Friends recapped the recent Able Danger/Mohammed Atta revelations without mentioned Gorelick's wall or her position on the 9-11 Commission. One has to wonder why Gorelick raised the wall in the first place. You've certainly provided the answer. Now we just need to get the message to the rest of the world.
As we already mentioned, the Gorelick "wall."
Do you suppose anyone could connect Hillary in all of this?
The memo grew out of the Justice Department's prosecution of the 1993 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center -- the act that apparently gave Osama bin Laden the idea to try again in 2001.
"During the course of those investigations," wrote Gorelick in 1995, "significant counterintelligence information has been developed related to the activities and plans of agents of foreign powers operating in this country and overseas, including previously unknown connections between separate terrorist groups." But Gorelick wanted to make sure that the left hand didn't know what the right was doing. "We believe that it is prudent to establish a set of instructions that will clearly separate the counterintelligence investigation from the more limited, but continued, criminal investigations. These procedures, which go beyond what is legally required, will prevent any risk of creating an unwarranted appearance that FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) is being used to avoid procedural safeguards which would apply in a criminal investigation."
The problem, of course, is that the inability to share information is precisely what hampered federal agents in tracking down the 9-11 hijackers. As Attorney General Ashcroft testified, this artificial wall impeded the investigation into Zacarias Moussaoui, the so-called 20th hijacker, who was arrested prior to the 9-11 attack, as well as Khalid al-Midhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi, both of whom were identified by the CIA as suspected terrorists possibly in the United States prior to their participation in those terrible attacks. "Because of the wall, FBI Headquarters refused to allow criminal investigators who knew the most about the most recent al Qaeda attack to join in the hunt for the suspected terrorists," Ashcroft told the commission.
On Aug. 22, 1996, just a few days before the start of the Democratic National Convention, Ms. Gorelick oversaw a critical Justice Department meeting with the FBI. Immediately after this meeting, as it happened, all serious inquiry into the fate of TWA 800 came to an end.
On the next day, for instance, the FAA began to inquire whether any dog-training exercises had ever taken place on the plane that would become TWA 800. On the same day, as CNN reported, the FBI now claimed publicly for the first time that the explosive residue found along the right wing "could have been brought on the plane by a passenger and was not part of a bomb." Likewise, after the meeting, the FBI would do no more eyewitness interviews, at least not for the next two months. The Bureau only did a handful after that and all of those for the wrong reasons.
"Evidence strongly suggests it was Gorelick not the ineffectual Freeh who not only misdirected the FBI's investigation into Oklahoma City, but also the FBI investigation into TWA Flight 800. The parallels between the two cases are shocking. And in each case, the Clinton administration constrained the FBI for the same reason: to advance the re-election chances of its standard bearer. "
Although [Jayna]Davis does not document Gorelick's role in Oklahoma City, media accounts routinely describe her as the director of the Oklahoma City task force, the so-called "field commander." As Davis has told me, someone in Washington called the FBI in Oklahoma City and issued a two-word directive on its investigation into Islamic terrorism: "Kill it."
Disgusting absolutely disgusting the lack of investigative journalism by leftist MSM on serious issues. Instead all they want to do is fabricate memo's and undermine anything or anyone who doesn't side with their "Revolution". I remember hearing the screaming of FR voices over Gorelick but not a serious question by the Rather, Koppel, Jennings Cabal. You can add that POS Helen Thomas in there also and the rest of her Communist mafia friendly White House press comrades. Where the hell were they during the "Clinton" years. Our great first post modern President. Journalists? Reporters? BS!
It all fits together:
Talk about the Crime of the Century.
