clinton aides: kean destroying “bipartisan aura” of 9/11 commission

this post was also written a while ago and never published. but it relates to a topic still fresh on many people’s minds — the 9/11 commission and clinton administration misconduct. — travis

excuse me while i vomit.

on the fifth anniversary of the september 11 attacks, ABC will be airing a movie, “the path to 9/11.” it was created by cyrus nowrasteh, who previously produced a film, “the day reagan was shot”, a film denounced by conservatives. apparently, nowrasteh’s 9-11 movie has dramatized scenes about bill clinton’s refusals to prosecute osama bin laden. also apparently, there were so many of these instances that the filmmaker couldn’t run all of them by members of the former clinton administration.

well, as it turns out, sandy berger is mad. he has just found out that he stuffed all those documents in his socks for nothing, because now the truth is coming out anyway.

and so you see why clinton aides sent a letter to former 9/11 commission co-chairman and republican, thomas kean, who served as a consultant on the ABC movie.

In a letter to Mr. Kean, the two [clinton] aides, Bruce R. Lindsey and Douglas Band, wrote that his defense of the mini-series “is destroying the bipartisan aura of the 9/11 Commission,” on whose findings the project is partly based.

now that the 9/11 commission report is on the books, they’ve got a problem with its perceived bipartisanship. yet these people had no problem with jamie gorelick’s presence on the 9/11 commission while it was still in the crucial fact finding phase. remember that gorelick sat by while the 9/11 commission grilled then-attorney general john ashcroft about why he didn’t get around the US intelligence sharing wall to catch the terrorists before they struck on september 11th. remember that it was also discovered that the wall was strengthened subsequent to memos by gorelick and janet reno, on behalf of president BJ clinton (allegedly to protect BJ from the chinagate scandal). gorelick’s memo reads, in pertinent part:

We believe that it is prudent to establish a set of instructions that will more clearly separate the counterintelligence investigation from the more limited, but continued, criminal investigations. These procedures, which go beyond what is legally required, will prevent any risk of creating an unwarranted appearance that FISA is being used to avoid procedural safeguards which would apply in a criminal investigation” (emphases added).

so, to sum up: clinton aides are upset because a former 9/11 member consulted on an ABC docudrama that shows them in a bad light, alleging this connection damages the penumbras and emanations of bipartisanship. however, clinton aides do not mind when the aura of bipartisanship is damaged by conflicts of interest in the creation of the report itself.
