More conflict of interest by Gorelick.... She met with Tenet regularly, and interviewed Tenet. She wrote the Chinese Wall document which prevented intelligence agencies from communicating... and sits on the commision as an interviewer rather than interviewee.
Now, it turns out she worked with Richard Clarke... and never disclosed it or recused herself!

Ive suggested that Gorelick be replaced with George Tennets 2nd in command but liberals think there would be too much of a conflict of intrest in doing so.

Of course she worked with Clarke...they both worked for Clinton, and both worked on terrorism issue.
They didn't just meet a few weeks ago.

The Clinton Justice Department also instituted a policy that airlines would be fined if more than 2 individuals of any ethnic group were required to go through secondary screening prior to boarding a flight. What was Jaime Gorelick's role in implementing this policy? We'll never know, because she's asking the questions instead of answering them.

ben Veniste defended his questioning of Ashcroft about the rumor that he (Ashcroft) refused to fly just before 9/11 by saying something to the effect that he (bV) wanted to avoid the rumor mongering that occurred after the Warren Commission released their report. Well, it looks like bV's got plenty of grist for the rumor mill in Gore-lick. Anyone think he'll ask Gore-lick to resign in order to keep the rumor mill from working overtime and destroying the credibility of the commission? Didn't think so.

Are you saying this is OUR business? /s
How can these commissioners keep defending this person being on the commission? The entire thing is a quagmire. (sorry couldn't help myself)

Another new thread. This is becoming just like the clintoon / monica BJ in the WH. That depends on what the meaning of the word is is.
This may take some of Kerry's flip flopping off the news. That may be bad news.

Looks like there is a mountain of evidence well beyond one memo from Gorelick that makes her leaving the commission a requirement.
This story isn't going to go away, its only going to get bigger. Damn shame its Friday.

It looks like she probably worked with Richard Clarke in getting the CIA to create that bizarre cartoon to close out the TWA800 explosion investigation.
DEEPER CIA LINK BY 9/11 PANELIST
How Richard Clarke concocted the TWA 800 'exit strategy'
TWA Flight 800, and the Gorelick connection
"...although Ramzi Yousef was on trial that very day in New York for his role in Operation Bojinka, there was no connection made between those plans and the destruction of the plane. Just the opposite. Richard Clarke, in fact, takes credit for suppressing the real evidence and discovering the preposterous "mechanical failure" thesis that the administration eventually made stick.
Although it is easy to blame the FBI for the shameful investigative breakdowns both in Oklahoma City and on Long Island, its agents did not subvert the investigations of their own accord. Their orders came from Washington. The responsibility for enforcing these orders fell to Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick, who served as the Soviet equivalent of the "political officer" within the Justice Department.
On Aug. 22, 1996 five weeks after the crash of TWA 800 Gorelick summoned the FBI's Jim Kallstrom to Washington to be served up a dose of survival reality. Kallstrom had been a good soldier. He had kept all talk of eyewitnesses and satellites and radar and missiles out the news. But the evidence had led him far away from mechanical failure, and there was no easy way to turn back.
To be sure, no account of the meeting provides any more than routine detail, but behaviors began to change immediately afterward, especially after the New York Times broke a headline story the next day, top right: "Prime Evidence Found That Device Exploded in Cabin of Flight 800." This article stole the thunder from Clinton's election-driven approval of welfare reform in that same day's paper and threatened to undermine the peace and prosperity message of next week's Democratic convention.
On that same Aug. 23, the Federal Aviation Administration began to inquire whether any explosives-training exercises had ever taken place on the plane that would become TWA 800. From that day forward, the FBI would do no more serious eyewitness interviews. On that same day, Kallstrom was now saying for the first time, "It was possible that the PETN could have been brought on the plane by a passenger and was not part of a bomb."
Jim Kallstrom was not the only one who had learned the hard way that there could be no terrorism in the summer of 1996. At the "feel good" Atlanta Olympics, the beleaguered security guard Richard Jewell, the poor soul who first spotted the Centennial Park bomb, was learning a harder lesson still.
Although 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."
If that person is not Jamie Gorelick, perhaps she could tell the 9-11 Commission who it is. By suppressing the truth in Oklahoma City, Long Island and Atlanta and then burying it the Clinton administration left America wide open on Sept. 11. Apologies are in order, but they will not be enough."
Wonder if this will see the light of day.
I hope we all remember it, the conclusion of this panel has been from the beginning to blame-Bush, but this Gorelick's contributions will qualify any conclusion they make. Sometime the best laid plans fall flat.

Have you looked at the commission members glorious resumes? There's executive director, Philip Zelikow who served in the state dept., National Security Council & Presidents Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board. He's the guy all over muslim websites saying: Front Page Asia Times 3/31
"Iraq was invaded 'to protect Israel' - US official
By Emad Mekay
WASHINGTON - Iraq under Saddam Hussein did not pose a threat to the United States, but it did to Israel, which is one reason why Washington invaded the Arab country, according to a speech made by a member of a top-level White House intelligence group.
Inter Press Service uncovered the remarks by Philip Zelikow, who is now the executive director of the body set up to investigate the terrorist attacks on the US in September 2001 - the 9/11 commission - in which he suggests a prime motive for the invasion just over one year ago was to eliminate a threat to Israel, a staunch US ally in the Middle East."
Then there's Roemer who served on house Permanent Committee for Intelligence from 1991-2003; then there is Christopher Kojm Deputy Executive Director of the commission who served from 1998 to 2/03 as Deputy Assistant Secretary for Intelligence Policy in the State Dept's Intelligence bureau.
What were all these guys recommending to the powers that be during their service. How come we don't get to hear testimony from the chairs of the house and senate intelligency agency about what they knew or why they didn't change policy or protect us better?
