We were going to take this Dec. 4 NewsBusters post by John Armor (aka Free Republic's Congressman Billybob) to task for falsely claiming that Jamie Gorelick, as a Clinton-era deputy attorney general, created the "wall" that kept intelligence and law enforcement authorities from sharing information. As we've detailed, the wall was created long before Gorelick wrote the memo purportedly "creating" it, and John Ashcroft's Justice Department renewed it in 2001. But between our original reading and our returning to it to formulate a response, the post has disappeared, though the comments to it have not. Strange.
