    During his testimony before the 9/11 Commission, Herr Ashcroft slyly insinuated that a "Member of the Commission" wrote a memo establishing a "Wall" between law enforcement and intelligence agencies. Of course, conservative media whores, Rush Limbaugh springs to mind, jumped on this issue, calling for Jamie Gorelick to resign her position.

    What Herr Ashcroft and the media whores conveniently ommitted is that the "Wall" was established during the administrations of Reagan and Bush the Elder. And, Dubbyuh's administration signed off on Ms. Gorelick's memo leaving the "Wall" in place.

    This fits a pattern of obfuscation and ommission by this administration. It is said that a people get the government they deserve...But did we really deserve the bunch of yahoos currently running this country?

    Talk about a pattern of obfuscation. :rolleyes:

    She wrote the memo.
    She shouldn't be on the commission, she should be testifying.

    And sorry, you're wrong about the origin of the 'wall' as well. It started with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act in 1978. And who was president in 1978? That's right, Jimmy Carter.

    Jimnyc-

    Thanks for stealing my points!LOL

    Yeah, just about everything bad started in the Jimmy "I've never met a dictator I didn't like" Carter era.

    And yes, Jamie "hypocrite from the hellmouth" Gorelick MIGHT not have been THE only person to add a few new bricks to The Wall- not to be confused with Roger Waters' masterpiece- but she did pull some overtime on its construction and should NOT be on the commission. Still, I am glad she is there because it will just further damage the final report's credibility.

    You can tell the poor lil' pinko commie libs & the LMM are deep in panic mode, knowing that rigged polls & blatant propaganda will not be able to defeat President Bush & ruin this country.

    Need I remind you who appointed Ms. Gorelick to the commission? It was GEORGE W. BUSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He appointed every member of the commission.

    And btw, it's not Herr Ashcroft, it's Ayatollah Ashcroft.

    I have never accused Bush of being perfect, but Gorelick is on the other end of the spectrum.

    This commission is officially a joke now. Gorelick's conflict of interest is so great it's nauseating. Hey libs, using anything resulting from this commision will not result in getting you more votes, you may steel the nerve of your existing cool aid drinkers, but anyone with a smidgeon of a clue sees this commision for what it is. A heaping, smelly pile.

    Ummm how about a "Congressional" Commission is appointed by "Congress". Bush may have brought up the idea, but congress picked the people.

    Bush cant just hand pick members of an "Independant" Commission. He'd be seen as trying to stack the commission to show that he had nothing to do with it. The Dems would have cried FOUL at the top of their lungs on CNN and the other MEdia Elite networks.

    (majority or minority leader, as the case may be) of the
    Democratic Party, in consultation with the leader of the House
    of Representatives (majority or minority leader, as the

    [[Page 116 STAT. 2409]]

    case may be) of the Democratic Party, who shall serve as vice
    chairman of the Commission;
    (3) 2 members shall be appointed by the senior member of the
    Senate leadership of the Democratic Party;
    (4) 2 members shall be appointed by the senior member of the
