Clinton Admin. Knew of 9/11 Hijackers

NewsMax reports: More than a year before the 9/11 attacks, Clinton administration intelligence officials had identified four of the 19 9/11 hijackers as a terrorist threat - including al-Qaida team leader Mohamed Atta and his partner Marwan al-Shehhi, whose planes destroyed the World Trade Center and killed over 2,700 people.

But the critical information was not acted on, at least in part, because of prohibitions against intelligence sharing implemented by former Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick, who was reportedly installed in her post at the insistence of then-first lady Hillary Clinton....

(snip) In fact, such intelligence sharing was strictly prohibited under Ms. Gorelick's policy, known at the Justice Department as "The Wall," which, in the spring of 2000, had also prevented the CIA from tipping off the FBI that two additional 9/11 hijackers, Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi, had entered the country.

Al-Midhar and al-Hamzi were identified by the Able Danger team as well, the Times said.

In its final report, however, the 9/11 Commission made no mention of the fact that the Clinton administration had identified key members of the hijack team, even though, the Times noted, that information had been shared with 9/11 Commission members.

(snip) Ms. Gorelick is expected to be a leading candidate for attorney general should Mrs. Clinton win the 2008 presidential election.

All of this is important because the 9/11 Commission knew about this and failed to include it in their report...any report...no report...

If you remember, Gorelick worked alongside Richard Ben-Veniste, who made his reputation in his early thirties as a prosecutor working for Archibald Cox and Leon Jaworski on Watergate.

Tod Lindberg, editorial-page editor of the Washington Times, wrote a great article - The Hideous Career of Richard Ben-Veniste - and concluded with:

So it is. And it will, indeed, be interesting to see whether the liberal, overwhelmingly Democratic D.C. bar comes down on liberal Democrat Richard Ben- Veniste with the same fury as it came down on conservative Republican Abraham Sofaer. Or if that old pattern going back to the Watergate days will continue to assert itself--with Richard Ben-Veniste as a force unto himself, the righteous doer of partisan Democratic deeds, and never mind such petty concerns as fair play or appropriate conduct.

Apparently Ben-Veniste, Gorelick, et al, took it upon themselves to cover up this critical information...by not releasing this information - when serving on a commission to 'uncover the truth'!

Clearly Bill Clinton KNEW more than he has ever admitted...

Clinton FAILED to pass that information along to the incoming President...

SANDY BERGER - the stuff-the-documents-down-your-pants standup former Clinton National Security Advisor was part of the cover-up...
