Although you understand the debilitating impact of the [Gorelick] wall, I cannot imagine that the commission knew about this  memorandum, so I have declassified it for you and the public to review.The tragic murder of 14 people (I include the preborn baby) at Fort Hood last week by Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan was the first terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11. This terrible act has brought to the fore all the usual suspects, recriminations and rationalizations. Each day brings new revelations or "red flags" concerning this Muslim fanatic that military officials, the FBI, CIA, NSA, Homeland Security and even Hasan's medical colleagues knew about for years, but did nothing.
~ John Ashcroft, attorney general, before the 9/11 commission, April 13, 2004
Two things shielded America's enemies from swift justice: 1) Political correctness, which I call "perversity correctness," or what conservative intellectual Michael Savage calls "political cowardice"; and 2) the Gorelick Wall.
Let's take the first shield Maj. Hasan (and technically untold millions of Muslims) have protecting him – PC, political cowardice. Our military brass and Congress are so cowed by even the appearance of singling out Muslims to prevent terrorists attacks in America that they literally looked at every other thing in the room but the 800-pound gorilla sitting in the corner shouting Allahu akbar! – until it was too late.
This insane PC policy of American cowardice toward Muslims is evidenced by the Obama administration refusing to use the phrases "war on terror," "Islamic terrorism," "terrorists" or "Muslim," preferring the less judgmental term, "manmade disaster."
The second policy America has launched against itself is the infamous "Gorelick Wall." What is the Gorelick Wall? It is a policy developed by Clinton appointee and former Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick, who after the first terrorist bombings of the World Trade Center of Feb. 26, 1993, was placed as the head of a blue ribbon commission to find the causes in our internal security that allowed these bombings to occur.
In March 1995, Gorelick co-wrote a radical and treasonous memo that, in the words of Attorney General John Ashcroft, "go beyond what is legally required ... [to] prevent any risk of creating an unwarranted appearance that FISA [the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] is being used to avoid procedural safeguards which would apply in a criminal investigation."
What does this mean? It means that the FBI cannot share intelligence with the CIA, the NSA, the DEA, ATF, the military or any other security agency in America. It is a unilateral, self-binding policy reminiscent of the proverbial saying, the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. [CLICK HERE TO READ MORE]
