A member of the group, the "Jersey Girls," who lost her husband in the 9/11 attacks, is defending 9/11 Commission member Jamie Gorelick against allegations that, as deputy attorney general in the Clinton administration, she blocked critical intelligence that had identified the two 9/11 hijackers who destroyed the World Trade Center.
"Gorelick gets a bad rap with that whole, you know, 'wall thing,'" Lorie Van Auken told WABC Radio's John Gambling - referring to Ms. Gorelick's 1995 directive prohibiting intelligence agencies from sharing evidence on suspected terrorists with law enforcement.
Calling it insread "the Reno wall," Van Auken insisted that its primary impact was limited to the investigation into so-called 20th hijacker Zacarias Moussaoui, where investigators were prevented from searching Moussaoui's computer until after the 9/11 attacks. Van Auken offered no comment on reports that the Gorelick restrictions bottled up critical intelligence on 9/11 conspirators Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi, whose hijacked planes destroyed the World Trade Center.
But Rep. Curt Weldon, who revealed earlier this week that military intelligence had identified Atta and al-Shehhi as terrorist threats operating inside the U.S. two years before the attacks, blamed the Clinton Justice Department's "wall."
"There was no reason not to share this information with the FBI," he complained in a radio interview Wednesday night, "except that the firewalls that existed back then were so severe that they wouldn't let these agencies talk to one another."
Predictable deceit from this deranged woman.....just as night follows day.
Laurie Van Auken, "Gore Lick gets a bad rap for, ya know KILLING OUR LOVED ONES!"
Maybe, if this useful idiot wasn't busy blaming Bush as her preconceived political leanings demand of her, she might be placing blame on the real culprit here, Gore Lick.
This inane comment tells you all you need to know about this lady and her group's politics.
The reason was Clinton cover. Why did he need so many levels of protection?
Yep of course even the non-military death of a loved one will not stop some from reading from the Dim talking points.
Basically, she's using her husband's corpse to "shield" Gorelick.
What a dumb beeatch.
Ping, thought you may be interested.
Yeah, but all you have to do is get them into your Camaro, and have Bon Jovi playing on the stereo, and they melt in your hands.
Don't forget how they chirped in unison... It was on Bush's watch!
What do the Jersey Girls and Cindy Sheehan have in common?

How Chinagate Led to 9/11
By Jean Pearce
FrontPageMagazine.com | May 25, 2004
As the 9/11 Commission tries to uncover what kept intelligence agencies from preventing September 11, it has overlooked two vital factors: Jamie Gorelick and Bill Clinton. Gorelick, who has browbeaten the current administration, helped erect the walls between the FBI, CIA and local investigators that made 9/11 inevitable. However, she was merely expanding the policy Bill Clinton established with Presidential Decision Directive 24. What has been underreported is why the policy came about: to thwart investigations into the Chinese funding of Clintons re-election campaign, and the favors he bestowed on them in return. -snip-
Did DoD lawyers blow the chance to nab Atta?
By Jacob Goodwin
In September 2000, one year before the Al Qaeda attacks of 9/11, a U.S. Army military intelligence program, known as Able Danger, identified a terrorist cell based in Brooklyn, NY, one of whose members was 9/11 ringleader Mohammed Atta, and recommended to their military superiors that the FBI be called in to take out that cell, according to Rep. Curt Weldon, a longtime Republican congressman from Pennsylvania who is currently vice chairman of both the House Homeland Security and House Armed Services Committees. -snip-
It too the DNC all of 15 seconds to pull them out.
It is OBVIOUS the Clintons did not want al queda stopped.
Every DNC talking head on FNC is using the "gold star mothers for peace" faux group.
The goal of the democrats is VERY clear now, they don't care about the 9/11 commission. They want "viet nam" public opinion so they can use pulling out as a campaign issue. Even IF GWBush starts pulling troops back correctly, they will say it is because of Political pressure.
We SHOULD have CRIMINAL investigations as to who kept this from the 9/11 commission. As of right now, the 9/11 commission is 100% discredited. (it was before but not the left can not deny it.)
Gorelick is a traitor.
That inane comment tells you all you need to know about New Jersey, period.
