Skip to comments.Woman Tied to 9/11, Fannie Mae on Obama's FBI Shortlist!
Posted on 03/23/2011 2:50:41 PM PDT by fightinJAG
The Obama administration reportedly is considering former Clinton administration official Jamie Gorelick, among others, to become the next director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
The Wall Street Journals Evan Perez first reported the news last week, citing U.S. officials familiar with the situation.
Gorelick served as vice chairman of the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) when the government-sponsored enterprise began bundling subprime loans into securitized financial instruments. Prior to that, she served as deputy attorney general in the Clinton Justice Department under then-Attorney General Janet Reno from 1994 to 1997.
But Gorelick is perhaps best known for her 1995 memo, written when she was deputy attorney general, that later became known as Gorelicks Wall, a policy prescription limiting the flow of information between intelligence gatherers and criminal investigators that some believe helped allow the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center to go unchallenged.

For example, consider the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) scandal which, it should be noted, was handled by Sen. John Kerry and his Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. Ms. Gorelick had represented Clark Clifford and Robert Altman when they tried to get their former employer, First American Bank (a BCCI property), to pay their legal fees, though the Justice Department was involved in the prosecution of BCCI.
Further, she had close ties to the embattled lawyers in the White House when the Clintons brought her in to replace Philip Heymann, former deputy attorney general, during the Whitewater and Vince Foster scandals. Heymann had been abruptly fired by the Clinton White House when he objected to the manner in which the White House was handling the Foster investigation and he was almost immediately replaced by close Clinton ally Gorelick.
I was just ready to post that myself.
O DEAR GAWD NO
Truly, one cannot make this stuff up.
Put to music!
The woman who set up Gorelicks wall argued against strong encryption on our computers.

Let's talk about Oklahoma, too.
Is Obama channeling Richard J Daley, or Al Capone? Or Both?
Not even George Soros could mastermind a criminal enterprise like this Obama administration without help.
Should make for some very interesting confirmation hearings!

DAG Eric Holder was repeatedly told the Wall was blocking intel sharing
911FamiliesForAermica.org ^ | January 27, 2009 | Tim Sumner
Three times during his tenure as Deputy Attorney General, Eric Holder was made fully aware that intelligence sharing with the Criminal Division was not taking place. As the officer in charge of day-to-day operations at the Department of Justice, his lack of due diligence ensured that the Wall between the intelligence and criminal divisions of the FBI that Jamie Gorelick had built would remain in place for the foreseeable future. The Wall stood as the Clinton administration and intelligence community saw the rising threat of al Qaeda, Ramzi Yousef was prosecuted for making the bomb used in the 1993 attack upon the World Trade Center and Bojinka plot to bomb American jetliners, and our embassies in Africa were attacked in 1998.

Guess whos been involved intimately with Fannie Mae (Anyone remember Jamie Gorelick?)

From the Maha -
Guess whos been involved intimately with Fannie Mae? Does the name Jamie Gorelick ring a bell? This woman is everywhere, and Jamie Gorelick got a 26 million payout when she left the place. Jamie Gorelick got 26 million to leave, one of Clintons guys, Franklin Raines, Franklin Raines, he was kicked out after corrupting the place. He left shortly before he was taking it in the shorts, but he got out of there with no penalty whatsoever. What is it with these Clinton people? This is why we dont get any tell-all books on the Clinton administration because they were all set up in these sweetheart deals money, money, money, money I still cant get over this. Congress is not helping poor old Doug Gylfe, so now we have millions of Americans who are priced out of home ownership, which is how this all started. Any rescue policy to stem forecloses could artificially prop up home prices and perpetuate the affordability crisis, yet Ill guaran-damn-tee you if government did nothing and home prices continue to fall then tomorrow the AP would write a story whining and moaning about the lack of asset value for people who still do own their houses. We just cant win with these people.

My first thought was this is like putting a gun in Jamie Gorelick’s hand and the US up against a wall with her shooting it in the back of the head.
Obama can be reassured from pre 9-11 history that she’s up to the job of taking America down once and for all.
You’re so right and this will be rewarding bad behavior.
