Well, she’s not one of Obama’s radical friends, but an old face may be returning to Washington: Jamie Gorelick.
Just what we need… an AG with a talent for disasters:
Not many people can claim to have been at the center of arguably the greatest financial disaster and greatest national security disaster in American history. But Gorelick, said to be on the short list for attorney general by the New York Times, can. Surely that qualifies her for further government service.
Gorelick earned an estimated $26 million serving as vice chair of Fannie Mae from 1998 to 2003. In 1998, according to the Washington Post , Gorelick received a bonus of $779,625, despite a scandal in which employees falsified signatures on accounting transactions to manipulate books to meet 1998 earning targets.
And that’s not all, folks:
Gorelick was the author of a 1995 memo that helped establish what former Attorney General John Ashcroft testified was the “single greatest structural cause” for Sept. 11, which was “the wall that segregated criminal investigators and intelligence agents.”
“Government erected this wall,” Ashcroft said. “Government buttressed this wall. And before Sept. 11, government was blinded by this wall.”
Sounds like change to me… change from an administration that, for all its faults, kept us safe from additional terrorist attacks after 9/11; and to one that would again blindfold law enforcement and make it easier for the Islamoterrorists to hit us again.
Is this the change 53% of America voted for?
