Sensenbrenner Calls on Gorelick to Resign From Sept. 11 Commission
Tampa Bay on line (AP) ^ | 04-14-04 | The Associated Press
Kinda blows a hole the size of the Grand Canyon into this whole "Independent, Non-partisan" 9/11 Commission, eh?
The only person who previously knew about this memo was Gorelick and she was covering up to protect herself.
 
 
-And already, information on the internet is being "scrubbed"--

Can someone tell me who chose the people to be on the commission?

As I understand it, Daschle appointed the Dems and Trent Lott (forgotten, but not -- unfortunately -- gone!) appointed the Republicans.

Interview With Ted Olson; Interview With Richard Ben-Veniste, Slade Gorton - CNN Larry King

Senator Gorton, what do you make about of what Ted Olson said about you and your fellow commissioners doing to much television, going on the media. He's surprised at that.

SLADE GORTON (R) 9/11 COMMISSION: I would divide Ted's comments into two. First, his the description of the wall and the fact that it came into existence in the 1970s and 1980s, through several administration, both Republicans and Democrat was entirely correct. It was created by a statute, it was created by court decisions, not by the desire of the people in the Department of Justice.

And as a consequence, it lasted a year into the current administration, until 9/11 persuaded Congress to pass the PATRIOT Act and the courts to change their minds. So he's right about that.

So, it was wrong to attack individuals, especially a member of the commission, for creating something that was not their creation, but was required by an outside force.

JAMES THOMPSON, 9/11 COMMISSIONER - Aaron Brown CNN

One of the commissioners asking questions today was Jim Thompson, the former Republican Governor of Illinois and we are pleased that he joins us tonight from Chicago. Governor, good evening to you.

JAMES THOMPSON, 9/11 COMMISSIONER: Good evening, Aaron.

BROWN: I saw you sitting next to Commissioner Lehman when he said some very real changes are coming down the track. Can you give us a sense of at least your own view of how extensive those changes have to be and I suppose the money question here is do we need, in your mind at least, do we need a domestic intelligence gathering agency?

THOMPSON: Well, here's the dilemma and it's a real one for all of us on the commission and I think a real one for the president and his administration, for the Congress and for the American people.

In my view and I suspect some of my fellow commissioners share this view, George Tenet at the CIA and Robert Mueller at the FBI are two of the best people that have happened to the federal government in a long, long time, and if we could be assured that they would be in charge of those agencies forever no changes because both men are instituting real reforms at their institutions.

But they won't be there forever and we don't know who the next director of the CIA will be or the next director of the FBI will be and so we have to look at structural changes.

But if we do that and if, for example, we recommended the creation of a new domestic intelligence agency that would probably take five years to get up and running and where would the people come from who would be employed?

From the FBI probably, from the CIA, and so we'd start all over again with the same people in a different bureaucracy with a different committee of Congress overseeing it and with a track record yet to be established, so this is far from an easy question and I don't think we're through considering the issue yet.

BROWN: But it obviously has to be considered.

THOMPSON: It has to be considered because there's no question there were failures at the FBI and failures at the CIA before 9/11. Now that doesn't mean that we could have prevented 9/11 had there been no failures.

We'll never know, I suspect, the answer to the question of whether 9/11 could be prevented and we need to avoid the blame game. We need to at least focus on what lessons we can learn from the death of these 3,000 people or they will have died in vain.

BROWN: And I wanted to ask you about the blame game stuff and whether we're past that in these hearings, not so much today but certainly yesterday. For those of us who really want this commission to do it great, it was an uncomfortable day I thought of finger pointing and it's their fault, no it's theirs, no I didn't say that, yes, he did.

First of all how do you square some of that and, secondly, are we past that point?

THOMPSON: Well, you know, I think as much blame came from the witnesses pointing at each other as came from the commission.

BROWN: Yes, absolutely.

THOMPSON: That's the first answer and, secondly, I think sometimes when you tune into the hearings you're probably mistaking the personality and the witness questioning techniques or the cross- examination techniques, if you like, of various members of the commission, some of whom are lawyers, some of whom are former prosecutors or defense lawyers.

It doesn't necessarily indicate what we're thinking or where we're going to end up with our conclusions. My guess is, my best hope is that when this is all over the commission will have a unanimous report, five Democrats, five Republicans agreeing unanimously on what happened on September 11 and where we go from here, what the future holds for the intelligence services of this nation and how we can lessen the odds of having 9/11 happen again. And, if we have a unanimous report, it won't be a partisan one.

BROWN: Just one more quick one here.

THOMPSON: Sure.

BROWN: And, actually it was the witnesses and not the commissioners that made me uncomfortable yesterday. Up the road in Wisconsin, Congressman Sensenbrenner today strongly suggested that one of the commission members resign over a conflict of interest. Do you have a feeling on the appropriateness of that? THOMPSON: Yes, you know, I like Congressman Sensenbrenner but I think he's wrong on this one. Jamie Gorelick recused herself from having anything to do with this issue of the wall that's created between prosecutors and intelligence services.

In point of fact, that wall grew up 20 years ago in the Reagan administration. It continued under the first Bush administration. It continued under the Clinton administration and it continued into this Bush administration where it was finally torn down by the Patriot Act, which President Bush and John Ashcroft pushed.

So, she's not taking part in these things that are at issue, just like a number of us are not taking part in matters where we have a conflict. My law firm represents American Airlines, so I recused myself a year ago on the issue of airline security. I won't take part in that part of the report.

And so, I think Commission Gorelick who is a person of great integrity and has been a valuable member of this commission should stay on the commission and participate in our final report.

BROWN: Governor, we know you've had a long day. It included some travel. We appreciate you time as always. Thank you, sir.

I'm reposting this over here from this thread because it is starting to look like Ms. Gorelick had direct knowledge of an impending attack immediately prior to the OKC bombing, and her memo interfered with that investigation.

From this thread:

Mr. Ashcroft pointed out that the wall was raised even higher in the mid-1990s, in the midst of what was then one of the most important antiterror investigations in American history--into the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. On Tuesday the Attorney General declassified and read from a March 4, 1995, memo in which Jamie Gorelick--then Deputy Attorney General and now 9/11 Commissioner--instructed then-FBI Director Louis Freeh and United States Attorney Mary Jo White that for the sake of "appearances" they would be required to adhere to an interpretation of the wall far stricter than the law required.

The Middle Eastern (Iraq) Connection to Oklahoma City (1995 Official Congressional Prior Warning) from (February 17, 2002 | Jim Crogan)

On Feb. 27, 1995, the task force had issued its first confidential warning to federal agencies that Islamic terrorists "may soon strike Washington D.C., specifically the Capitol and the White House." This confidential alert, which he said was quietly distributed to federal intelligence agencies and law enforcement, claimed the attacks were to begin after March 21, 1995.

"Striking inside the U.S. is presently a high priority for Iran," stated the warning. The alert also stated that upcoming terrorist strikes might be directed against "airports, airlines and telephone systems." In light of Sept. 11, it was a telling note.

On March 3, 1995, the task force issued an update. This "super-sensitive" alert stated there was a "greater likelihood the terrorists would strike at the heart of the U.S." Bodansky also told Davis that after the truck bombing, he reviewed intelligence data that confirmed, "Oklahoma City was on the list of potential targets."

Bodansky gave Davis copies of the task force's original alert and some of his confidential notes detailing the update and Oklahoma City's target status. His material notes an independent warning from Israeli intelligence a month before the bombing. The warning indicated a terrorist attack was impending and that "lilly whites" would be activated. Lilly whites, Bodansky writes, were people without any background or police records who would not be suspected members of a terrorist group.

Someone on FR brought up the other day Clinton's firing of all the U.S. Attorneys. IIRC, there were a lot of messy questions at the time of an on-going investigation by the Arkansas U.S. Attorney's office into derelictions there. Who was the woman (Arkansas U.S. Atty, I think) whose computer was seized and personal correspondence made public?

Excellent points... it was Jean Lewis you recall-- what little I have is spotty, but here you are:

Thanks for posting this. I like Tom Kean, but he is a RINO par excellance, I must certainly will send him a strongly worded message on this subject.

If he and Kerrey care a whit about this commission they will give that woman the gate. Of course it is absurd, and the fact that she didn't reveal it to her fellow commissioners, and then tried to deny it, it's reprehensible.

Everthing Clinton did was to protect Clinton. I suggest that Clinton wanted to restrict info sharing between FBI and CIA in order to protect investigations into potential criminal cases regarding his actions and the actions of his close friends. The "gag order" was Clinton's way to limit investigation into his affairs...why else would agents be threatened with their careers?

Perhaps Freepers can connect the dots and recall what investigations into Clinton would have been advanced had the FBI and CIA shared info.

It was always about Clinton.


My you are insightful! Check this out to connect the dots.

Now it's our turn, this was a direct message to US. They gave us the ball, we run with it. Follow any of the numerous links, and call for her resignation! The administration has given us the nod, DO IT NOW!!!!

I cannot find in any of the articles, the "MEMO" itself, exact date that this "MEMO" was written and put into effect.


This "MEMO" seems to be case specific. So what "INTEL" was this WALL created to hide, "case specific".


Was it written shortly after the OK bombing, because bjclinton tried to blame "Rush radio" right wing extremists for OK. That was no accident!

On Tuesday the Attorney General declassified and read from a March 4, 1995, memo in which Jamie Gorelick--then Deputy Attorney General and now 9/11 Commissioner--

On March 3, 1995, the [Congressional] task force issued an update [to federal agencies]. This "super-sensitive" alert stated there was a "greater likelihood the terrorists would strike at the heart of the U.S."

The warning indicated a terrorist attack was impending...

Ashcroft testified that the Gorelick memo was sent on March 4, 1995, which is one day after the Congressional task force on terrorism updated its alert to the DOJ that a terrorist attack was impending.

The text of the memo indicates that surveillance of [redacted] was already underway.

A letter from each of us to Ashcroft to prosecute might be in order.

1996: Clinton Considered Jamie Gorelick for CIA Director
The Washington Post Archives | December 3, 1996 | John F. Harris
Oh good grief. All though the Clinton years, I (and a lot of people I know, including many here on FR) said that Clinton was a danger to the country. I actually recall this particular item now that it's been brought up again, but I'd forgotten it--and I'm not sure I understood (at the time) just how bad an idea this was. If memory serves, I believe I thought it a looney idea--now I know it could have been lethal.

Here's the text of my email, don't worry, I put Tom Kean in the subject line. If I misspelled anything, please don't tell me!

Dear Commission Chairman Kean:

I write to you as a fellow New Jerseyan, one who saw the attack on the World Trade Center from my office windows, and one who knows many people who lost friends and relatives in the attack.

I also have had the dubious experience, during my 18 years of living in Hudson County to have lived across the street from the bomber of the first attack on the WTC, across the street from the Mosque where the fellow who killed Meyer Kahne lived, and worked around the corner from the Mosque where the "Blind Sheik" preached. For all these reasons an honest appraisal of intelligence and other pre-9/11 failures is important to me.

Several days after the 9/11 attacks, I asked my husband "How could they have let this happen to us?" By "they" I meant the Federal Government, not President Bush, not the Military, not former President Clinton, certainly not Richard Clark or Janet Reno, no one person or institution, but all of them, collectively. To emphasize what I am sure you already know, the primary function of the Federal Government is to keep the Citizens of this country safe from attack. On Sept. 11th, 2001 the Federal Government failed at its primary task. My understanding is that the commision you chair was empanelled to determine both how this happened and to devise ways to ensure it does not happen again.

It has long been stated that one of the chief reasons for the failure to detect the 9/11 plot was the inability of various Federal Agencies to share information. It has now been demonstrated beyond doubt or dispute that a person who now sits as a Commissioner has much to explain and to answer for in that regard. Whatever anyone might have thought of Ms. Gorelick before, the revelation of her authorship of the memo restricting information sharing reveals a damnable conflict of interest, one that should have been apparant even before the revelation of this memo.

Her failure to alert her fellow commissioners is duplicitous and her failure to resign is disengenous. But I must say that the most distrubing thing of this entire affair has been your statement that this is "your business", and not the business of the American people. That is a disgraceful remark coming from a man of your standing. The work of the commission is solely and only the work of the American people, it is not the property of you, Ms. Gorelick, or any other commissioner.

If Ms. Gorelick is not asked to resign the findings of the commission will be forever suspected to be incomplete and inadequate. And further, if you do not retract your statement I will hold you personally forever in disdain, as a man who sees himself above his station, which is, as of this time as in your past tenure as the governor of my state, a servant of the American Public, and not their master, as you seem to imagine.

Sincerely,
my actual name, address, daytime phone
