Do not connect dots, do not collect $200

Am I the only one who finds it odd how, when people of a leftish sort find themselves being scrutinized for doing something questionable, they seem to immediately receive death threats? Of course those mordacious conservatives are capable of any outrage, but still...it's very convenient, confers instant victimhood, and seems to happen with suspicious regularity...

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Jamie Gorelick, a member of the commission investigating the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, said Saturday that she received death threats this week after a number of conservatives alleged that her former work in the Justice Department may have contributed to failures leading to the attacks...(via Judd)
I think the problem with Gorelick is not conflict-of-interest, but that she withheld important information.

If the commission were really a nonpartisan effort to understand why things went wrong, and it was trying to dig out the reasons why we didn't connect the dots...and the person who wrote the policy, the actual you-may-not-connect-dots policy, is just sitting there, fat 'n happy, saying nothing...

A lunatic situation. At the very least she has deliberately sabotaged the investigation.

(And of course there's the usual press bias. Her opponents are "conservatives," but they don't label Gorelick a "liberal.")
