More "Able Danger" revelations

Captain's Quarters has devastating further observations on the 9/11 Commission's exclusion of the "Able Danger" information. We had forgotten about the Jamie Gorelick connection to the clinton administration and the cheap shots she took at the Bush administration before the 2004 election. Those of you unfamiliar with Gorelick, she was the lawyer (along with Janet Reno) most responsible for building the wall between the intelligence apparatus of the United States and the FBI. She complained the government didn't do enough in the preceding months to thwart 9/11, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS HER HANDIWORK that hamstrung the possibility of an investigation even taking place! Then, by some insane bit of chance (hahahaha), Gorelick ends up as one of the members of the commission investigating HER OWN role in drafting the law. When this conflict of interest was pointed out, she refused to resign and was one of the persons who continued to ignore the "Able Danger" data to cover her (and the Clintons) woeful inaction in the face of rising terrorist action against the US. Only in America.

To "Left-out:" Post a link, not the entire article. That was too long and cumbersome to wade through and added nothing to the conversation. My Blog, My Rules.

Talk about LEFT OUT!
Or too much left in... I know- writing is a PRO-CESS... edit-edit-edit-.... where was I before I was snipped...

Oh yeah- briefly- here's my gist:

It's R-E-A-L easy to blame Slick Willie Clinton for every failure under the Sun BEFORE King George the Second TOOK the throne... all the right wing blogs always straining to carry the water of BushCo.- striving to make sure the Emperor and his subjects never notice his toned naked ass sticking out in the breeze naked as a jaybird...

But our "August" "Mr. AUGUST-OFF" G.W.B. had the better part of 2001 to actually DO SOMETHING about terrorism, ATTA and his fiends.

Unfortunately we know too well what was accomplished. Zip!

But at least he cleared the stumps with that chainsaw, watched Barney root out the armadilla's... and cleared lots of brush, like he's doing now I bet...

But we all got the one thing that W's big players behind the scenes really wanted- "some catastrophic and catalysing event - like a new Pearl Harbor"... http://pilger.carlton.com/print/124759

And now look what we're stuck with in Iraq...

It seems to me to be so uncharacteristically UNCONSERVATIVE and UNREPUBLICAN to continually POINT fingers at OTHERS for situations that are at least partially, if not wholly their own foul-up, bleeps and blunders! Hypocrisy Reigns supreme in our Capitol!

I also find it strange how most of us coppers look so critically/suspiciously at the Daley fifedom locally, (and rightly so!)... but we seem to be so pathetically blind to the national & world corruption eating the House of Bush II from the inside out- indeed then reflexively defend all the malfeasance coming out of D.C.- yet of your partner or buddy in blew bent over every-which-way to defend the dirty Daley administration- you'd laugh out loud and call him (or her) a S-O-F-T-B-A-L-L !

WHY this inconsistency? ;-(

Anyway- Here's that excised link- not directly "Able Danger/ATTA-Boy" related- but instead commenting on the OTHER similar recently reported "Homeland" security snafu- the Escape of Bin Laden from the Tora Bora Mountains a few years back... remember him... "U.B.L." ..."Sweep it ALL up... "Things related... and NOT" (Iraq!) (from Rummy's post 9/11/2001 notepad!)

Political pundits agree, a president needs 12-18 months to establish his credentials, implement his policies and get his people approved by congress before he begins to make an impact on the process. Bush had under 8 months from innauguration to 9/11. He was also in the middle of clinton's bursting of the stock market bubble along with undoing all of the onerous "presidential directives" slick willy signed in his last 24 hours of office. The Able-Danger program had spotlighted a couple of serious candidates for investigation, but were forbidden by law (Clinton's law along with Reno and Gorelick) from sharing it with actual investigators of the FBI.

As to the "Mr August Off" comment, maybe you didn't realize, but Ted Kennedy and Harry Reid and everyone else has the same month off.

"some catastrophic and catalysing event - like a new Pearl Harbor"? You must be smoking dope to think they were hoping for the deaths of almost 3,000 citizens.

Point out the hypocrisy instead of making blanket accusations you neither try to nor can back up. It's demeaning to our intelligence

Fair enough- good retort. I'll try to keep it leaner and meaner... so as not to be a demean-er! It's just frustrating- if Reagan was Teflon- then "W" must have some sort or Romulan cloaking device up his derriere what with the way he he dodges scrutiny/culpability in four-freaking dimensions... oyy! Maybe Karl Rove is "Q" from Star Trek / Next Gen or sumthin'?!?

BUT HEY- can us tree-huggers PLEASE get a "token" lefty link (or two) somewhere on the right gutter of the splash page... just to advance the cause of "Fair and Balanced" bloggerism ? ? ;-) Equal Time? Charity for the Intellectually Challenged? ;-)

That's IF you could actually STOMACH the thought of "lefty links" on page one... As another has previously mentioned somewhere on your "Blog"- there are more "libs" running around in blue up north than probably ever before on da' job... just want "my peoples" to feel we can use the same "facilities" here... ...hate to feel like it's a "RIGHTS ONLY" fountain of info... ;-) (we ARE all BLUE after all... right?!)

Sincerely,

- Shady (Left-Out/L.O.F.A.N./homeskool/Ydahs/ etc...)

Not to put to fine a point on it Shady, this is our blog and we happen to be Republican (with a capital "R"). Our tastes run to the Right. We are what we are and we make no claims to being fair and balanced - that's FoxNews. You are welcome to post links to sites that support any arguements you may make.

token lefty link? Oh, oh, I got a suggestion? How abouts Democratic Underground (DU) for shorts. Just please post a warning that the views expressed therein are (hopefully) not representative of any group in this country whatsoever, except perhaps the insane! Thus, they should be taken as satire or comedy or sarcasm. Or something. But definitely not sober thoughts of sane people!
