Posted on 08/11/2005 6:57:35 AM PDT by Carl/NewsMax
Rep. Curt Weldon, R-Penn., is vowing to find out who in the Clinton administration ordered a group of military intelligence officers not to tell the FBI about critical information on two 9/11 hijackers that was obtained two years before they destroyed the World Trade Center.
"What bothers me is two things," Weldon told WABC Radio's Mark Levin late Wednesday. "I'm told that that they couldn't share this information with the FBI? How far up the chain [of command] did it go? Did it go to the White House? And if so, who ordered it?"
Asked about reports that restrictions on intelligence sharing implemented by Clinton Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick played a role in the disastrous intelligence breakdown, Weldon said: "I think that needs to be investigated."
"There was no reason not to share this information with the FBI," he complained, "except that the firewalls that existed back then were so severe that they wouldn't let these agencies talk to one another."

I hope they get Gorelick on this and give her some time in the lockup. She sits on my companies' board-of-directors and I'd love to see her removed from that post as well.
I think Welden's ignorant pea-brain need some "investigation."
What planet has he been living on??
It was obvious from the beginning that the people most responsible for allowing 911 to happen were the people on the 911 commision.
Nothing will happen, the fix has been in for a long time.
It wasn't a blunder. It was deliberate.
The Justice Department is investigating the accounting shenanigans at Fannie Mae in the late 1990s. Its shady accounting enabled the company to exactly hit its earnings per share target to trigger the maximum bonuses for its top executives. Fannie Mae just announced yesterday that it may take another year to complete its restatement of earnings, that's how bad the accounting irregularites were. Jamie Gorelick was Executive Vice President and General Counsel of Fannie Mae at the time and received almost a million dollars in bonus. If any indictments are handed down out of the DOJ investigation, Gorelick is certain to get one of them.
Did Weldon have any role in the heroic attempt to wipe Willie from the White House?
"The Pennsylvania Republican told Levin that three current members of the Able Danger team have already come forward to talk to him, and eleven more are willing to testify."
Hope these guys aren't planning to visit Marcy Park this fall!
Hey Curt is the one leading the charge in this. He might be a RINO but he is hardcore when it comes to national defense.
...and where was Sandy Burglar?
You know if there was a legitimate investigative media in this country this information would already be known.
Where are the so called "Mainstream journalists" and why haven't they asked the question. How did the totally conflicted Jamie Gorelick end up setting on the 9-11 commission and what does that say about the democrats and their lack of concern for America and Americans security?
If any media people read this you should be ashamed that your petty partisan agenda has destroyed your credibility. I haven't always considered myself a conservative but I have always been an American and I will never stab my country in the back for a political agenda.
Hehehe...thanks for that bit of good news. I hadn't been following that, but will now. She really made me angry during the 9/11 panel hearings, badgering any/all conservatives who testified.
You mean, for once, it won't be Bush's fault? LOL!
I hope they get Gorelick on this and give her some time in the lockup.
This b@tch is criminal, and deserves to be thrown in the slammer. I hope America is getting a real snout-ful of the scum that is supposedly running this country. Wake up America!!!
Where then was he during the 9/11 Hearings when Gorelick was making a mockery out of the proceedings?
But to be fair to Weldon, everyone has known Clinton and Gorelick have been responsible for the unshared Intelligence policy, NO ONE HAS SAID A PEEP...till now. WHY??
The Bush Administration doesn't want to touch Bubba no matter WHAT he and his henchmen/women did or didn't do to screw the country.
Do we yet know if Sandy Berger has received his slap on the wrist?
Not sure if the New York Slimes are covering this but I bet if they are, its a 1 paragraph story on page 15. If Gorelick were a Republican, it would be front page, bold print!!
"How far up the chain [of command] did it go? "
All the way, all the way
And it sure wasn't a blunder. Or a boo-boo. Or an ooops. Or an accident.
