WND Revives Zombie Lie About Jamie Gorelick
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Aaron Klein writes in WorldNetDaily's non-bombshell about a business arrangement between the IRS and the Urban Institute that Jamie Gorelick is on the Urban Institute's board of trustees, adding: "Gorelick is also reportedly the official blamed for the pre-Sept. 11 “wall of separation” that prevented the CIA and FBI from comparing investigation notes."

Jack Cashill tries to pile on Gorelick in his Feb. 12 WND column: "In 1995, she went on to pen the infamous 'wall' memo that prevented intelligence agencies from sharing information in the run-up to September 11."

That's nothing but a zombie lie. As we have amply documented,  the "wall" was actually created in the late 1970s and was reaffirmed by the George W. Bush administration shortly before 9/11. Gorelick's memo merely detailed procedures that she said permitted a freer exchange of information between criminal and counterterror investigators than had been allowed under the Reagan and first Bush administrations.

But then, WND loves its zombie lies.
