Today Attorney General John Ashcroft spoke at the 9/11 Commission debacle – and declassified a document. And he stated that “for nearly a decade our government had blinded itself to our enemies.”
What else did Aschcroft say?
He said that 9/11 Commission member Jamie Gorelick wrote a 1995 memo that established a “wall” between the criminal and intelligence divisions, hindering the ability of the U.S. government to detect the Sept. 11, 2001, plot, according to testimony today by Attorney General John Ashcroft.
Ashcroft said in his prepared statement that the document by Gorelick, who serves on the 9/11 Commission, and who is a partner at Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering, the same law firm which is simultaneously defending the Saudi government and/or members of the Saudi royal family in lawsuits brought by the families of 9/11 victims, helped establish the “single greatest structural cause” for Sept. 11, which was “the wall that segregated criminal investigators and intelligence agents”.
Gorelick was a Democratic appointee to the commission probing how the government handled the threat to terrorism leading to the 9-11 attacks.
“Government erected this wall,” Ashcroft said. “Government buttressed this wall. And before September 11, government was blinded by this wall.”
Folks, Ashcroft mopped the floor with his evidence and pronouncement of Gorelick’s 1995 memo.
The Landmark Legal Foundation, a national public interest law firm, has formally requested that Gorelick step down from the commission because she is “hopelessly conflicted” in her role as a member.
The group, headed by Mark Levin, contends there are “numerous issues about which she has knowledge” resulting from her service as deputy attorney general from 1994 to 1997.
Folks, Mark Levin is one of my heroes. I referenced one of his articles back on March 03, 2004. Read more about him and his writings here.
