The Gorelick Rosetta Stone

The Gorelick Rosetta Stone

Has 9/11 Commissioner Jamie Gorelick's famous memo provided the missing link between Chinagate and 9/11?

Recall, too, that during the time of Ms. Gorelick's 1995 memo, the issue causing the most tension between the Reno-Gorelick Justice Department and Director Freeh's FBI was not counterterrorism but widely reported allegations of contributions to the Clinton-Gore campaign from foreign sources, involving the likes of John Huang and Charlie Trie. -- The Wall Street Journal, Thursday, April 15, 2004

Hats off to the Wall Street Journal for a spectacular observation, perhaps the Rosetta Stone of postmillennial national security.

Let its boiled-down essence not escape your attention: the ongoing dividends of Chinagate may well have included 9/11.

And history may be repeating itself. Let me explain.

To set the stage, recall that Bill Clinton ensured his loyal minions populated the US Attorneys' offices nationwide when he fired every last US Attorney at the dawn of his Administration, then appointed his own. Next, as we have seen through Jamie Gorelick's startling memo[1], he saw to it that domestic law enforcement was blinded to foreign intelligence information. He then methodically offered up White House access and key strategic technologies to the highest bidder: China, and Indonesian/Chinese billionaire donors with close ties to China's dictatorial regime. Intriguingly, Clinton's Department of Justice's signature assault on Microsoft also appears to have been to the benefit of Indonesian/Chinese billionaires, who just happened to be the originating funders of the private venture fund which was the largest shareholder in lead plaintiff Netscape at the time[2]

With the declassification of former Deputy Attorney General Gorelick's memo, the picture comes into sharp focus: the Clinton Administration was not just:

...but also:

Yes, the economy, Clinton's vaunted economy, with its skyrocketing stock-market and spectacular 5.6% 1996 unemployment rate (which of course puts George W. Bush’s dismal 2004 5.6% unemployment rate to shame). This unstoppable economy screeched to an ignominious halt in the second half of 2000 as the tech sector imploded[4] - a multi-trillion-dollar evaporation of shareholder wealth driven in significant part by the DOJ's pursuit of tech bellwether Microsoft, which put a measurable damper on enthusiasm for big-cap technology stocks and funding for new tech ventures alike.

Follow the money. The legacy of that Administration is not just one of incompetence and inattention culminating in an innocence-crushing September morning once it was safely out of office. It is one of malevolent, calculated wholesaling of loyalty for political gain, with Gorelick's Wall providing cover by blinding law enforcement efforts that might have made a difference.

Still, Chinagate was exposed, and in a sane world it would have hit the political world like one of the Chinese ICBMs it facilitated. But Clinton was untouchable - immunized! - after the Lewinsky obstruction-of-justice mess fizzled like the captivating but comparatively feeble bottle-rocket it was. Today the damage extends far beyond the smoldering pits of lower Manhattan and the Pentagon. The world now stands on the cusp of decades of global turmoil in the face of emboldened and metastasized radical Islamism, most recently including al Qaeda’s successful gambit towards reestablishing Moorish dispensation in Andalusia[5].

Is Chinagate old news? Water under the bridge? Something for the 9/11 Commission's Democrat partisans to pooh-pooh and ignore as they recklessly paint their anti-Bush pastiche?

Not if you continue to mourn the thousands dead on that grim September morning. And not if you consider what other reflexively anti-Defense politician currently angling for the Presidency has financial ties to some of the same scandalous campaign donors as Bill Clinton: John Kerry is today's victorious campaign-donation choice of Chinagate's Huang-linked George Chao-Chi Chu, described as having "unusual access to high-ranking Communist officials in China" [6]. And that is old news, in a way: for in 1996 John Kerry received cash from Johnny Chung and Liu Chaoying, daughter of a powerful Chinese military official, for providing high-level access to Federal securities regulators. Kerry's cash came from transfers sent to Chung on orders from the chief of Chinese military intelligence[7].

Notes: 

1 A web-accessible transcription of the Gorelick "Wall" memo is at http://www.insightmag.com/main.cfm?include=detail&storyid=659679

2 At the time of the DOJ's action against Microsoft was initiated, lead plaintiff Netscape's largest shareholder was the private venture fund of Amerindo Investment Advisors. "The name Amerindo came from the fund's first investors, a group of Indonesian Chinese who wanted [the founder, Cuban expatriate Alberto] Vilar to call the firm American Indonesian Singaporean Investment Co. but settled for an abbreviation." -- Fortune, October 25, 1999

3 Caspar Weinberger, Washington Times, Sept. 2, 2003, reviewing Miniter: "The president never supported Mr. Woolsey's urgent request for Arabic-language translators for the CIA in 1994. A separate feud between Mr. Woolsey and Sen. Dennis DeConcini, Arizona Democrat, was allowed to run its course without direction by the Clinton White House, which further set back the CIA director's appeal for Arabic translators." So, as the author concludes, "a bureaucratic feud and President Clinton's indifference kept America blind and deaf as bin Laden plotted."

Gorelick is a sociopathic multiple personality who now finds herself in a hot paroxysmal psychodynamic vortex.
The guilty id of Gorelick-the-Democratic schemer wearing the
badges from her roles in the Oklahoma Bombing, TWA800 and other
Islamic attacks, and endless Clinton scandals and Arkancides, and
the sleaxy id of her Gorelick-the-lawyer/administrative/corporate-obstructionist-skank
bouyed by her resume titled with her chronic and systemic intelligence failures,
her obstructive "Wall", and her authorship of "Destruction of Evidence"
must at last --in the real world and on TV-- finally encounter
Gorelick-the-911-Atrocity-Commissioner/investigator.

As a result, infantile regression has appeared
and is heralded by her op-ed rant, further lies
and now-assumed pseduo-"victim"-status.
Not apparent, this probably includes (off-screen)
her spilling a LOT of water (humint and literal).


Disgraced Commissioner Kean: "Ms Gorelick is one of the finest members
of the commission and one of the most bipartisan members.
People ought to stay out of our business."


"America has the watches. We have the time
[thinking and LOL] ... and praise Allah for Gorelick
and her clowns on their 911 Committee.
"

If America survives the long-term effects of the clintons, it will only be further proof that God still performs miracles.

You are correct in your assessment. 9/11 was only a predictable result of clinton policies which were really meant to cover their many crimes by blinding the FBI and CIA to their international criminality.

What is as horrifying is a huge number of Americans still slavishly support these thugs and would accept their yoke in a minute.

Protecting the "Former Occupant of the Oval Office, 1993-2001" was of PARAMOUNT importance, the highest cause in the Universe. Though the heights (or depths) to which the members of that regime went to to gain that end seem to be far too much effort to safeguard such a modest objective.

Accept the verdict of history, and recognize that Warren G. Harding's reputation was raised and given some polish by comparison, and the regime of the "Former Occupant of the Oval Office, 1993-2001" assumes its rightful place, which is to be the most dreadful malfeasance of the 20th Century. Richard Nixon's administration has become all the more honorable, for the acceptance of responsibility, and for retiring gracefully from the scene.

And if they get their way, they'll be back.

At this stage, with the left having a false sense of optimism about their chances of beating W, I fully expect Hitlery to be the VP, giving the "former occupants" the keys to the mansion once again.

Kean > > "People ought to stay out of our bidness . ."

Last time I checked, Mr. Elitist and high-minded untouchable - YOU WORKED FOR THE PEOPLE!

Gore-Lick has got something, somewhere, on SOMEONE - (who knows) that is FORCING Kean to keep her on the commission.

Since she not only was a WALL architect, builder, supporter, and defender - she has an unrefutable CONFLICT of INTEREST in whatever findings may now come out of this commission.

And since the commission panel members (starting with Kean) are unable or unwilling to remove Gore-Lick from the panel, THE PANEL ITSELF HAS LOST ALL CREDIBILITY.

(Except, of course for the Democrats, the Liberal Media, and those eager mujahadeen seeping into Iraq from Iran and Syria.)

"Recall that Bill Clinton ensured his loyal minions populated the US Attorneys' offices nationwide when he fired every last US Attorney at the dawn of his Administration, then appointed his own."

At least 93 US Attorneys let go. I think that's all, except maybe one. Happened in March 1993. Clinton embeds the corrupt and incompent Reno as Attorney General, and she immediately lets them all go. Web Hubbel, the felon, was then WH-DOJ liason.

Ahhhh… the good old days of the Clinton scandals. Good to see them making a comeback. I think this calls for a Citizen Clinton flashback:

DISSOLVE: INT. CONGRESSIONAL HEARING ROOM - 2000

A long shot of the Congressional Hearing Room. Janet Reno is sitting at a table in a gray wool dress. To her left is Attorney David Kendall, to her right is Attorney Johnny Cochran. Rep. Lindsey Graham is questioning her.

GRAHAM: Miss Reno, when you were given this report, in November of 1998, why did you not act to stop this hemorrhaging of our nuclear weapons data?

RENO: Congressman, in all due respect, at the time, all the prosecutors in my office were looking into serious allegations that some churches were maintaining tax-exempt status while actively “not liking” President Clinton.

GRAHAM: Let me read from the report: “the Energy Department recorded 324 attacks on its unclassified computer systems from outside the United States between October 1997 and June 1998, including instances when outsiders successfully gained complete access and total control to create, view, modify or execute any and all information stored on the system.”

COCHRAN: Mr. Graham, have you ever used the word, “Chink” when referring to an individual of an Asian persuasion?

GRAHAM: You were warned Mr. Cochran. Would the Federal Marshals please remove Mr. Cochran from the hearing room at this time?

Two armed men in suits pick up Johnny Cochran by the arm pits, and drag him towards the doorway.

COCHRAN: The system of justice demands that your racist past be explored! We have evidence that while in college, you ordered a “Kamikaze” in a bar called Whitloe’s. That bartender is willing to testify about that horrific, denigrating slur. Nuclear weaponry pales in its ability to destroy when compared to the racist utterances that emanate...

He is gone from the room. Janet Reno is really looking nervous now, and begins to shake as Mr. Graham continues.

GRAHAM: Miss Reno, a look at the records of your Justice Department, reveals that federal officials requested 2,686 wiretaps between 1993 and 1997. Your Justice Department approved 2,685. In those four years, just one request was turned down - the request to wiretap the most destructive spy in the history of the United States, Mr. Wen Ho Lee.

RENO: A simple bureaucratic snafu?

GRAHAM: I have here a picture taken in 1994 - September, I believe...are you familiar with this picture?

RENO: (now openly sobbing) Yes, I am. I am.

GRAHAM: And where was this photograph taken?

RENO: In my office... (sob)... my office at the Justice Department.

GRAHAM: In this picture, you are wearing a wastepaper basket on your head, and you are holding a three-quarters-empty bottle of scotch. You appear to be inebriated. Were you intoxicated at the time this picture was taken?

RENO: Yes, congressman, I was shitfaced. Drunk as a sailor.

GRAHAM: On your left is James Riady, on your right is Mr. Wen Ho Lee, and to his right is General Ding Henggao, former commander of the Chinese Commission on Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense. Mr. Riady is handing you a few hundred dollar bills, and a new bottle of scotch. Mr. Lee is handing the General, who is a leading Chinese Communist expert on nuclear technology, a folder. The folder is coded FXT00D129. Are you aware of what our investigation showed this folder to contain?

RENO: The access codes and passwords for our defense department computers.

GRAHAM: And...

RENO: (bawling) Our nuclear launching codes!

Gasps and exclamations break out all over the hearing room. Flash bulbs are exploding rapid fire. The committee chairman begins banging furiously with his gavel, as Kendall jumps off his chair. He picks up one of the three phone books he has been sitting on, and begins beating Janet Reno with it.

KENDALL: Shut up, you stupid bitch!! Don’t tell them anymore!! We could all get the death penalty!!

The armed federal agents move forward to grab him, but before they get a chance, Janet Reno rifles a backhand across Kendall’s face, and he falls to the ground, bloodied and sobbing. A wet stain grows around his groin area, as the scene fades out.

More technologies transfers have just come to light:

The United States already has allowed the People's Republic of China (PRC) to invoke provisions of the unratified Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) to acquire extremely sensitive naval technology. A Pentagon official whose job was to track Chinese attempts to obtain U.S. military technology says that the Clinton administration gave the PRC technology that has compromised American submarine movements and could enable Beijing, undetected, to run submarines immediately off the U.S. coast. - By J.

OK if So... Then why did Bush KEEP all the Justice department lawyers ? And why did he keep most of the Clinton appointees ? upon assuming office to this day..

IS HE STUPID ?.. Most of his problems stem from allegations from those same people. I ask again. Is he stupid ?. Or is he captive of the " I'm a Unite'er not a Divide'er" hair brained scheme.. He does appear to be a well meaning but dumb as a post official, like his father. I will vote for him because I have no other choice.

Evidently the republican party is living on the Newt Gingrich legacy. But they "Borked" poor ol' Newt and made way for Uniters and not Dividers like George W. Gump. What was that interview with Bob Woodward all about ?. Must've been on advice from his daddy.

Yes. I just posted the other day that understanding the Clinton/Lippo/Riady/Huang/etc link tells the tale. And oh, what a tale it is.

It's as plain as can be. Note Ben Veniste's role in shutting down inquiry into this business. And I truly think the Republicans averted their eyes as they did not want to believe what their evidence was uncovering.

I remain confident that the truth will be laid out for posterity.

"Gorelick's Wall" was not just a monument to political correctness and lawyer-think run amok, it was a strategic keystone of the Clinton Administration's wholesale auction of America's security, sovereignty and economy.

It all makes prerfect sense, especially when X42's administration bald-facedly admits that they "weren't about" protecting America's sovereignty.

And in spite of this, the democRATs whine and bellyache about anyone that questions their patriotism.

What's sadly missing is some pubbies with the stones to make the democRATs face up to all this.

Ron Brown, inspite of the walls and 'three-card-montyesque' switching of authority for clinton's criminal enterprises regarding our nation secrets, was about to blow the whistle on his criminal boss ... and there was a certain weak link female who 'committed suicide' in her office to insure that the Brown investigations died with Ron. But America doesn't want to know the truth regarding the degenerate-in-chief, they just want to continue their blind worship and believe all is well and will get better, if the criminal enterprise clinton party gets back into power.

"Sorry--I meant a couple HUNDRED grand.

He was paid in the neighborhood of $200,000, and if you've heard the clips---ack--let's just say I am hard pressed to believe he was summoned due to talent."

Well I sure getting "nuclear" from the US was worth every penny and more the N. Koreans paid. I consider that "nuclear" adoption by the Clintons similar to the UN "OIL for FOOD" scam. We not only provided "nuclear" but food as well to N. Korea, may well have been the deal that gave the Russians, France and Saddam the idea to scam with that "oil for food" UN program.

As I observed some days ago.

The issue is not that Gorelick wrote the memo, the larger question is, who directed her to write the memo.
