    As a last question to former FBI head Louis Freeh, 9-11 Commissioner John Lehman asked whether Freeh was familiar with the information Jayna Davis has gathered for her new book, "The Third Terrorist." Davis, a former Oklahoma City newswoman, makes a powerful case that Terry Nichols had conspired with convicted World Trade Center bomber Ramzi Yousef in the Philippines and that Timothy McVeigh had received direct aid in the construction and delivery of the bomb from, among others, likely Iraqi agent, Hussain Al-Hussaini, the alleged John Doe #2. This was an excellent question. Lehman, however, addressed it to the wrong...

    The next shoe to drop in the Gorelick-gate scandal may be a still-classified report on the Millennium bomb plot that faults Gorelick's "wall" of separation between prosecutors and intelligence gatherers for nearly blowing the Millennium Bomb Plot probe. Writing in National Review Online, Landmark Legal Foundation President Mark Levin notes that the Commission is sitting on a damaging post-Millennium-Plot report that chronicles the impact of Gorelick's terrorist-friendly directive, which Attorney General John Ashcroft alluded to on during his Wednesday testimony. Dubbed the Millennium After Action Review by the Clinton National Security Council, Ashcroft said the report chronicles how al...

    <p>April 16, 2004 -- WASHINGTON - New questions surfaced yesterday about 9/11 commissioner Jamie Gorelick's potential conflicts of interest after it was revealed she was more deeply involved in anti-terror efforts than has previously been known. Records obtained by The Post show that Gorelick, while serving in a top job at the Justice Department, met every two weeks with George Tenet, then the No. 2 official at the CIA, and headed then-Attorney General Janet Reno's national-security team.</p>

    CIA Warned of Attacks As Early As '95 WASHINGTON (AP) - The CIA warned as early as 1995 that Islamic extremists were likely to attack U.S. aviation, Washington landmarks or Wall Street and by 1997 had identified Osama bin Laden as an emerging threat on U.S. soil, a senior intelligence official said Thursday. The official took the rare step of disclosing information in the closely held National Intelligence Estimate for those two years to counter criticisms in a staff report released Wednesday by the independent commission examining pre-Sept. 11 intelligence failures. That staff report accused the CIA of failing to...

    Gorelick, a commissioner on the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (search), is causing a stir because she served as the No. 2 official in the Justice Department from 1994 to 1997, during the Clinton administration. Both the Clinton and Bush administrations are key targets of the investigation, and although the panel is comprised entirely of Washington insiders and elected officials, Gorelick, a Democrat, is the only one who was actively serving an administration "She is in my mind one of the finest members of the commission, one of the hardest working members of the commission and,...

After all, she's an old Clinton Administration hand. Give her credit, though, she apparently isn't ashamed to hide them.

    <p>September 11 commission member Jamie Gorelick, as deputy attorney general for three years beginning in 1994, "was an architect of the government's self-imposed procedural wall, intentionally erected to prevent intelligence agents from pooling information with their law-enforcement counterparts," writes Andrew C. McCarthy, a former chief assistant U.S. attorney who led the 1995 terrorism prosecution against Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman and 11 others. "That is not partisan carping. That is a matter of objective fact. That wall was not only a deliberate and unnecessary impediment to information sharing; it bred a culture of intelligence dysfunction. It told national security agents in the field that there were other values, higher interests, that transcended connecting the dots and getting it right. It set them up to fail," Mr. McCarthy said in an opinion piece at National Review Online (www.nationalreview.com). "To hear Gorelick lecture witnesses about intelligence lapses is breathtaking," he added.</p>

The wall was a creature of statute. It's existed since the mid 1980s. And while it's too lengthy to go into, basically the policy that was put out in the mid-nineties, which...

Hmmm ... Is 19 more than two? Why, yes, I believe it is. So if two Jordanian cab drivers are searched before boarding a flight out of Newark, Osama bin Laden could then board that plane without being questioned. I'm no security expert, but I'm pretty sure this gives terrorists an opening for an attack. In a sane world, Lehman's statement...

    Reuters' reporting of Condoleeza Rice's testimony to the 9-11 Commission was another example of the kind of political bigotry which is well established in the media (Rice clashes with 9/11 commission, Alan Elsner, April 10). With leftist reporters one must look for their omissions as well as what they focus on. Now Elsner completely ignored Senator Ben-Veniste's loutish attitude toward Rice and his attempts to shut her up. On the other hand, he respectfully deferred to Beverly Eckert who disingenuously said: "It's most important that she [Rice] tell the unvarnished truth without any spin". He also quoted the statement sge...
