DEEPER CIA LINK BY 9/11 PANELIST - GORELICK
New York Post ^ | 4/16/04 | BRIAN BLOMQUIST

April 16, 2004 -- WASHINGTON - New questions surfaced yesterday about 9/11 commissioner Jamie Gorelick's potential conflicts of interest after it was revealed she was more deeply involved in anti-terror efforts than has previously been known. Records obtained by The Post show that Gorelick, while serving in a top job at the Justice Department, met every two weeks with George Tenet, then the No. 2 official at the CIA, and headed then-Attorney General Janet Reno's national-security team.

She is just another member of the DemocRAT FITH COLUMN. A snake like DasHole would have to put a few spies/traitors in this commission to "Guide" the results away from the guilty. These people are not interested in the welfare of the country, only in the power.

RINO Kean defended Gorelick as "one of the hardest working members of the panel..." I bet she has been busy as a beaver doing everything possible to bury the past, coverup or spin every misdeed ever committed on intelligence and national security during the Clinton Administration (imagine the workload!), and pointing the finger at everyone other than herself and her Clintonoid cohorts. I'm sure she has put in overtime, Mr. Kean!

"I imagined Daschle slapping his forehead and saying "Doh!"

LOL! A funny image.

And he's deeply saddened at being the one who has to take the blame.

This is great news for President Bush. At the end of the day this 9-11 commission will be proven to be a witch hunt of President Bush and its credibility will go down the drain. The 9-11 commission is finished.

Agreed. What you are suggesting about disbanding the 9-11 commission may very well happen if the Republican congress put a lot of pressure. However, whether it is disbanded or not, this 9-11 commission lost all its credibility and it is practically finished. The Democrats hopes that this 9-11 commission will help them politically are completely destroyed. This is a great victory for President Bush.

"Mentioned in the Wall Street Journall yesterday that Clinton was involved the Chinagate at the same time.....MAYBE: Illegal campaign contributions from the Chinese government.....CIA knew lots....Didn't want the FBI to know."

I believe that this is closer to the real reason why that WALL was built, and whatever happened as a result of the WALL was to be ignored. I also believe that is why the White House was filled with people who could not get a security clearance, they were the perfect bunch to follow orders and not be at risk of being nailed cause nobody really knew who was there and who was doing what. Except the Clintons.

All those pardons at the end of the Clintons reign was suppose to ZIP up their files on their dirty deeds.

Amazingly, the same people that think Gorelick did no wrong are out demanding a new trial for Martha Stewart, based on the lie of a juror.

This is a great victory for President Bush.

This is why it cannot be disbanded. To do so would make the president look like he's hiding something.

I say that we need to ride the wave and have the democrats waste even more of their valuable campaign time. They are only telling on themselves.

And some guy on FNC was just saying that Gorelick was just a figurehead. Uh huh...

Even if it were true, it means that Clinton squandered the Federal Treasury on salaries for figureheads and political appointees, and so he should reimburse the Treasury. It's all for the Children!

Looks like Gorelick was instrumental in the corruption of TWA Flight 800 terrorism investigation too.

Did Clinton appointee corrupt Flight 800 probe?

Three days later, the two men discovered that Macy had decided to contest the Appeals Court's decision. When a furious Key confronted Macy, all that the "courageous, truth-seeking" DA told him was,

"They won't let me." When Key demanded to know who "they" were, Macy just lowered his eyes to the floor and repeated, "They won't let me."

[1]
Key later learned from a source at ABC News that Macy had received a conference call from Janet Reno's deputy

Jamie Gorelick,

and the government's lead prosecutor, Joseph Hartzler, along with Governor Keating, Oklahoma City Fire Chief Gary Marrs, and Judge Daniel Owens.Interestingly, during a debate on FOX TV with Representative Key, Keating stated, "Nobody could get away with a cover-up; it would not be tolerated by civilized Oklahoma City.... Nobody's afraid of the truth."

Daschle lost the 1978 election, demanded a recount, and with a handful of "newly discovered" Indian votes, from, I believe, the same reservation that produced last minute votes for Johnson to defeat Thune in 2000, went on to take the seat that many Dakotans still think he stole.

Daschle, like Gephardt, Kennedy, Kerry, has never worked at a regular job in the private sector, even part-time, nor has he had to meet a payroll in a private sector business that workers depend on for jobs.

Is it any wonder Gephardt can talk about "winning life's lottery" with a straight face.

"Gorelick also worked at DOD, on something called the Threat Reduction Advisory Committee. Does that sound like someone who was out of the loop, unimportant, just a figurehead...Wonder what she did at DOD?"

TRAC homepage: http://www.dtra.mil/about/organization/ab_asco_trac.html

The TRAC advises and assists the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition, Technology and Logistics) on reduction of the threat to the United States and its allies from nuclear, biological, chemical (NBC), conventional and special weapons, sustainment of the the nuclear weapons deterrent, chemical and biological defense, counterproliferation, technology security, weapons effects and other matters related to the DTRA mission. The TRAC identifies and considers emerging Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) Threats, reviews countermeasures to such threats and assesses the adequacy of DTRA and other programs' responses to national policy and emerging threats.

On September 4, 1998, Secretary of Defense William Cohen designated the newly formed Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) to assume executive agent duties from OSIA effective October 1, 1998. Among other duties, DTRA manages DOD's response to UNSCOM requests for inspection team personnel, technical experts, monitoring equipment, supplies and other support. DTRA has the authority, consistent with the UN Participation Act, Executive Order 10206 and applicable DOD directives, to direct DOD components to procure or provide personnel, services, facilities, supplies, equipment and other assistance from existing DOD stores.

Unbelievable!

Folks, my "alarm bells" are all going at full blast right now. There are WAY to many coincidences popping up here.

I was reading another thread this morning and found out that Gorelick had made a phone call to Oklahoma City during the "investigation". We've also found out that she was involved in the TWA800 "investigation".

The Murrah Building was blown up on April 19, 1995. Does anyone know the EXACT date that the "Wall" memo was written?

I'm beginning to get a feeling that Gorelick was the Clinton's person "inside" the Justice Department, who would insure that no "investigation" would embarrass them.

IMO, Gorelick needs to be the subject of a FULL-BORE FreeRepublic investigation.

Since the word has now leaked out that the CIA in fact warned of a terrorist attack on landmarks in New York and Washington in 1995, the blame can be put squarely on Ms. Gore Lick, Bill Clinton, Janet Reno, et al.

The entire Clinton staff should be behind bars.

Here's what i posted on another thread:

Well guess what I just did?

Sent an email, just now, to Congressman Sensenbrenner who is raising the question of Gorelick's conflict of interest:

Congressman Sensenbrenner:

I applaud your efforts to call attention to Ms.Gorelick's conflict of interest in serving on the 9/11 Commission. It also might be important that she not just recuse herself, but be compelled to testify.

Should she come under direct questioning, please explore her participation as what appears to be an "overseer" in both the TWA 800 crash AND the OKC bombing.

From a World Net Daily editorial:

http://worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=38068

"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. "

With rumors rampant in both incidents regarding Iraqi or foreign involvement - this appears too coincidental and protective of the Clinton administration as they prepared for reelection.

Thank you.

Speaking of her Law Firm ... Did you know this?? .. I found this in my travels

"The New York Post has raised an interesting question: who is paying the legal fees of Craig Livingstone, the White House's former personnel security chief? Livingstone is using lawyers from a firm that normally charges between $350-600 an hour. The firm -- Miller Cassidy Larroca & Lewin -- is where Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick used to work."

Bingo. She belongs on the stand while under indictment for witholding evidence and obstructing justice. Her actions at justice, while destructive, were not criminal. Her actions on the commission rise to that criminal level.

And this axle was found by none other than

Good find! I vaguely remember somebody picking up the tab for Craig Livingstone, but couldn't have given any specifics. This is very interesting. Livingstone got away with his intrigues, and as far as I know, those FBI files were never dealt with according to law. We don't what copies of them are still out in Democrat computers, or even that they were returned to the FBI. But every file in unauthorized hands is a felony. Thank you, Jamie Gorelick.

I just voted in the FR Jamie Gorelick poll ("should she resign from the commission?").

I answered "No." I say keep her on the Commission so that we can continue to torment her, her party, and leftist liars in general. Make certain that this story continues to get legs. It hasn't so far (except in our own circles) and if she resigns it most likely won't ever get the public attention it deserves.

Furthermore, wouldn't it be grand to see the video of her standing up and moving from the high chair to the low chair so that she can testify? Wouldn't it be great to subpoena her to testify - even while she serves on the panel?

Thanks for listening.

The memo was part of a greater plan since Carter to minimize what they called "domestic spying". All those pesky warrants and supoenas that could come about by the sharing of info between agents and agencies. IMHO they were trying to keep too many from seeing what the Left was up to after Vietnam. Along with groups like cANSWER, others who benefited were the domestic islamofascists.


What amazed me was one of the panel maroons the other day defending Gorelick, saying she was such an expert and so qualified, input, blah blah blah. I told my husband- how on earth could they consider someone who didn't have the basic common sense to see how detrimental the "wall" would be to national security as having anything to contribute to the commission. Her "expert" opinion isn't worth spit- it's pretty obvious national security is and was the last thing on her list of priorities.
