Accountability, Please!

In the whole 9/11 Commission mishmash of scandals, one thing is clear: As Deborah Orin points out today, Manhattan US Attorney Mary Jo White warned then Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick about the dangers of "insulat[ing] the criminal side of the house from the intelligence side of the house."

The 9/11 Commission had this memo, and several related documents.

Yet nothing in the report -- which devoted only 3 out of 657 pages to "the wall" -- mentions them.

Why was this important issue ignored?

Inquiring minds want to know. And all Americans deserve to know.
