The Cisneros case isn't closed
Sunday, January 29, 2006
For eight years, Clinton Attorney General Janet Reno manipulated and frustrated the laws of the United States.
In 1993, 74 law-abiding citizens, including their children, died in Waco, Texas, on her orders. Nine months earlier, at Ruby Ridge, Idaho, Randy Weaver's son and wife were killed by men following her commands.
Perhaps, with a sense of what is appropriate, Janet Reno last week was the distinguished lecturer at the University of Iowa speaking on the urgent need for death-penalty reform in the United States.
During their time in the White House and Department of Justice, the veritable "Gang of Three" -- Bill and Hillary Clinton and Janet Reno -- organized and were a part of a successful cabal that enabled a member of the Clinton Cabinet, Henry Cisneros, to evade justice.
Cisneros, beloved by millions of Hispanics, could have become secretary of the Treasury or even president, anointed by the Gang of Three.
This month a report completed in 2004 by independent counsel David Barrett was made public. It documented the obstruction and impediment of justice that gave the former secretary of Housing and Urban Development a license to lie and cheat.
The term "made public" is a misnomer; 100-plus pages of the original 400-page report were "redacted" by court order.
Those who claim familiarity with the redactions say many concern the work to squelch the special prosecutor's investigation by Margaret "Peggy" Milner Richardson, a former IRS commissioner and a Hillary friend.
The Democrats already have geared up their apologists, ranging from Wesley Clark and Lanny Davis to Eleanor Clift and David Gergen, so that the Gang of Three can feel secure.
But not for long. Someone close to Janet Reno is talking.

Someone close to Janet Reno is talking? It sure isn't Jamie Gorelick.
Wrong timeline. Reno killed the people in Waco on 4/19/93, yes, but 9 months earlier klyntyn wasn't even president yet let alone Reno AG.
Someone didn't do their homework.
Such a mistake means I'm not bothering to follow link to original article.
I'm not saying it's wrong, I just haven't read anything.
kinda discouraging, ain't it ?
The report seems to have fallen off the radar, if indeed it was ever on it.
The bigger mistake may be in accepting the conventional wisdom, going back to the day of the Waco massacre, that it was Reno's decision...she obviously took the blame to spare Bill Clinton (and was thereafter untouchable as long as he was in office), but who really decided to attack? Hillary would be my guess.
Is it...Han Solo?
If I can't see the entire report can I get my money back?
I consider Janet Reno to be the very epitome of evil.
It's a good assumption that Reno made no decisions of her own during her 7+ years as AG and it's nearly certain that she was not the one who chose to issue orders to kill those people in that basement just 38 days after actually becoming AG.
Reno was a functionary. Culpable but not primarily responsible for the mass execution in Waco.
Sloppy stuff like that is what du monkeys and other lesser liberal life forms sieze upon as "evidence" of our stupidity.
Libs will say we're wrong anyway- why give them ammo?
That indeed is sloppy, but I still want to follow the story.
The 1st ever taken New York Times/CBS TV Poll showed that the majority of the American people DISAPPROVED of the CLINTON Administration's handling of the long standoff at Waco and were tired of hearing about it on their radios and TV's.
This TV Poll was known by the CLINTON White House ahead of time to be coming out on TV the very morning that HILLARY & RENO had therefore "Suddenly" decided would be the time for sending the tanks in on the Kids of Waco.
'It's the TV, stupid, no matter WHO pays for it'
...has always been the CLINTON lifetime M.O.
Correct. Ruby Ridge went down on On August 22, 1992. Months before the election of x42.The bigger mistake may be in accepting the conventional wisdom, going back to the day of the Waco massacre, that it was Reno's decision...she obviously took the blame to spare Bill Clinton
. . . and it wouldn't have been right to hit her, 'cause she's a girl and it wouldn't be nice. </sarcasm>
Any congressman can publish the full, unredacted report.
So far, nothing.
That is what Linda Tripp says and she was in the white House. Hillary is the indecisive genius that hems and haws and then sends in the storm troopers. See the same pattern in elian gonzales.
