I rarely discuss politics--this article needs little discussion. Attorney General John Ashcroft has squarely laid the blame for the pre-9/11 wall between intelligence agencies and law enforcement on--hold onto your hats--a member of the 9/11 commission, Jamie Gorelick.
Ms. Gorelick, #2 in President Clinton's Justice Department, wrote the 1995 memo which created the wall, and now serves on the 9/11 Commission tring to figure out how the terrorist events of that fateful day could have been allowed to happen. Ashcroft had to de-classify Gorelick's memo to bring it to the attention of the Commission -- she hadn't brought up her own role in the debacle.
This Commissioner should step down--behind that bright smile there is no conscience.
