don't have time to elaborate - see for yourself. This guy was the one Able Danger team briefed who decided it was not worthy of inclusion into the 9/11 report or even to the ears of comittee members since it did not fit their conclusions about Atta. THIS NEEDS TO P*O*P!
piasa, thanks posting more great data and the ping.
I am pinging a few other freepers so they can index this and ping their lists.
B U M P everyone oughtta see this today...
bump for later
Justs think how much truth would be exposed if FreeRepublic and the power of informed internet users had been in charge of the commission.
An earlier report I read this evening (they're all running together) about Snell points out that the German cell members covered for one another when some were out of the country so that their absence wouldn't be tracked.
Snell should have known this when he heard the briefing. Good grief!
This same Scarpa, who was the mobster informant in the Yousef case, was the same Scarpa who was the informant telling officials about all of the explosives under Terry Nichols' house.
One degree of separation on two huge terror acts. Wonder if he bought a ticket for Flight 800?
How weird is that??? Coincidence???
Bump, for later reference!
This is HOT!!!
Fox News is getting close to the point where its total time spent on the "Aruba Cataclysm" will surpass total reportage on the Twin Towers.
Is that the Aruba garbage dump that smells so bad, or is it Greta Van Sustrand?
So they not only control the information flow to the full Commission, they got to read the entire PDB's.
So, the vicious and dishonest dustup with Condi over the August 2001 PDB was launched by either Zelikow or Gorelick, who, at the outset, took parts of the PDB out of context to facilitate a smear of Condi Rice. Gorelick and Zelikow were the only ones who saw the whole thing, so they were the only ones who could have done the selective editing.
Must have been Gorelicker, unless Zelikow harbored a secret grudge against Condi - 'cause Zelikow was far from a partisan 'Rat like Gorelicker. The criticism of Zelikow being appointed Exec. Director was that he had co-authored a book with Condi and had advised the Bush transition team. I think he's come off as a very bi-partisan character, but certainly he was not an obvious Democratic mole, and nothing I've seen about him suggests that he would be co-ordinating that assault on Rice and Bush.
Gorelicker, on the other hand, was/is a whore for the Clintons, so she easily could do it..... and if she and Zelikow were the only ones to have complete access to the PDBs, then it seems apparent that she and Ben Veniste worked together to prepare that loathsome ambush of Condi Rice. All the more reason that Gorelicker needs to be tarrred and feathered, publicly revealed as a prime architect of both failed intelligence policies/procedures in the '90s "the WALL" and then also of the cover-up called the 9/11 Commission.
If it gets much worst the Cause of Death on my Death Certificat will read "Disgust".
If you followed the developing story on FR then you will have noticed that we knew it was Osama Bin Laden immediately and also immediately pointed to the Clinton complicity/neglect as the cause. That was one amazing day.
At whose instigation was Snell put on the Commission?
Great work my friend.
Can't say we didn't see this coming at the time it became known that Gorelick was a Commissioner.
Son of a Bitch. Joe Wilson worked for Clinton how has this not been widely propagated? OH I forget it means nothing to the RATmedia.
but still missing from the "top o' the hour news..." </crickets>
'Fixers' on the 9/11 Commission and its staff: Jamie Gorelick, Richard Ben Veniste, Dietrich Snell, Daniel Marcus, Peter Rundlet (now a paid Soros/Podesta drone). Each of these people has powerful personal links to Bill Clinton and/or failures of his administration to properly address terrorism issues. As for Rundlet, he may turn out to be up to his eyeballs in the cover-up, for he dwells in the heart of beast-land:
I am late to this thread. Your post of the FP interview first had my jaw hitting the floor, then nausea overtook all sensation, followed by disgust and near despair.
I like moosetard on my sangwiches.
Re the 1999 vs 2000 presence of Atta in the US, the discrepancy could be explained by something as mundane as the testifier mixing up "before the millenium" and "before the WTC disaster." Just as we all may be susceptible to writing the wrong year on a check in any January, this particular testifier could have said 1999, when he meant "one year before 9/11."
You might know this, but I want to add it to this thread, and am going to "park" it here. ;*) It is from an article recounting her resignation from the DOJ in 1997.
Who could possible have imagined that the DOD had 10000 LAWYERS! Why!!!!
Before joining the Department of Justice, Gorelick served
from May 1993 to April 1994 as General Counsel of the Department
of Defense. As General Counsel, she supervised the government's
second-largest "law firm," consisting of 10,000 lawyers.
Gorelick, 46, is a former partner in the Washington law firm
of Miller, Cassidy, Larocca and Lewin, and a former President of
the District of Columbia Bar. She graduated from Harvard College
in 1972, and from Harvard Law School in 1975. She is married to
Richard Waldhorn, M.D., and has two children.
Jamie S. Gorelick announced today that she will be resigning from her position as Deputy Attorney General to return to private life. Gorelick said she will remain in office long enough to help Attorney General Janet Reno assemble a team to lead the Department in the Clinton Administration's second term.
As the Justice Department's number two official since March 1994, Ms. Gorelick has served as the Department's chief operating officer, provided overall supervision of the Department, and functioned as the direct manager of its law enforcement components. She is one of the longest serving Deputies in the Department's history, and second woman ever to hold the position.
"Jamie brought tremendous managerial skill, brilliant legal ability, and great sensitivity to an extremely difficult job," said Reno. "Her contributions to the Department are incalculable, and I will miss her greatly, both as a colleague and as a friend."
As Deputy Attorney General, Gorelick introduced new managerial structures to guide the Department in the midst of a 30 percent increase in the Department's personnel and a 70 percent budget increase during her tenure.
One of Ms. Gorelick's principal priorities was to help prepare the Justice Department to be able to respond effectively to the new challenges of transnational crime and terrorism. To do this, she forged new relationships and administrative protocols with the Departments of State, Treasury and Defense, and with the intelligence community.
The Deputy Attorney General also worked with the Department's law enforcement components to better respond to crisis situations in the aftermath of the incidents at Ruby Ridge and Waco. After the bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City in April 1995, she coordinated the government's overall response to the bombing and supervised the investigative and prosecutorial response to the crisis.
"In all of her work with law enforcement," Reno added, "Jamie displayed a sensitivity to the civil liberties of our citizens that gave comfort to all of us who care deeply about the Constitution."
Holy crap! That is a huge find and certainly puts to bed some of the mantra from the left that the Wall didn't apply to Able Danger. VERY GOOD, MAICA!
I didn't know that DOD had 1,000 attorneys. And I didn't know that Gorelick's Wall applied to ALL branches of government.
Interesting that Freepers can find this information, seems that others can. Actually, it is disgusting that even now there seems to be a whitewash, Sheesch what is it about the Clintons that they are so protected? How obscene.
What really ticks me off is that the MSM does absolutely NO research these days. None. Zip. Nadda. They are stenographers...for the DNC.
Well, that settle's that dispute.
Gorelick set up the wall the DOD lawyers could not overcome.
C'mon Peach it is much more important for all Americans to know what Cindy Sheehan is wearing each day, and what is happening with the Natalie Hollaway case.
You never watched JAG?
It's like Jerry Springer news out there, everywhere. It's sickening.
No, I never watched JAG.
We have a good friend who is a JAG and teach at the war college; he watched it a lot.
Research by maica in #232 and your #233 is humungous, imo. I wish there was a way to send this to Weldon.
Doug - is there a way you can send this to Rep. Weldon?
From Enchante and Maica:
We already knew about the 'WALL' memorandum but this PR from Reno boasts that Gorelick was "on point" not only with the FBI but with "the Departments of State, Treasury and Defense, and with the intelligence community." This supports my speculation on another thread that she may well bear some direct or indirect responsibility for the policies and procedures being followed by the still unnamed "Pentagon lawyers" who foolishly blocked the folks at "Able Danger" from sharing info with the FBI!!!!!!! We need to be demanding that investigations into the Able Danger material include a look at WHO set the policies that the "Pentagon lawyers" were following, especially since that points right back to the whole issue of a COVER-UP by the 9/11 Commission that failed to examine the role of one of its own members in creating the conditions in which vital terror info could not be shared among government agencies!
Dispell the Ignorance bttt.
I would like to add for the record that Richard Clarke was the one holdover from the Clinton administration that could have made sure that the Able Danger info got to the right hands.
Clearly, he did not. And when the 9/11 commission fiasco started, he tried to pin it on Bush.
He's part of the cover up. Now the only question is whether or not this was all done on purpose to hurt Bush and Republicans.
Philip Zelikow has co-authored many books. He wrote a book with Ernest May on The Kennedy Tapes, and another with Joseph Nye and David King on Why People Dont Trust Government. He wrote Germany Unified and Europe Transformed with Condoleezza Rice.
Prof. Zelikow's area of academic expertise is the creation and maintenance of, in his words, public myths or public presumptions, which he defines as beliefs (1) thought to be true (although not necessarily known to be true with certainty), and (2) shared in common within the relevant political community." In his academic work and elsewhere he has taken a special interest in what he has called searing or molding events [that] take on transcendent importance and, therefore, retain their power even as the experiencing generation passes from the scene.
That Press Release should become it's own Thread.
That is really a riot that Zelikow wrote a book Why People Don't Trust Government. We just couldn't make this stuff up.
