34. Yes, I remember her.
Edited on Sun Apr-18-04 08:50 PM by TomNickell
Her information was not blocked because of orders from above--unless the entire FBI hierarchy was part of the Conspiracy. There is a very well-supported story that the FBI was very badly organized and managed--not to mention computer-illiterate. During the '90s the FBI director was more interested in 'getting Clinton' than in doing his job.

Vigorous action from the very top--shaking the trees, as Clarke put it--might have got her story heard. That never happened, and should have. It is fair to speculate on the motives.

Rowley, Clarke, Joe Wilson, et al illustrate the limits of Conspiracies. You can't go -too- far before you run into an honest man. And you can't tell who that is until it is too late.

Again, the 'theory' breaks into lunatic fringe territory when it requires the cooperation of whole bunches of ordinary people.

The assumption that whole bunches of Gov't employees actually did their jobs on time is only -slightly- less improbable.
