Skip to comments.'Able Danger' Intel Could Rewrite 9/11 History
Posted on 08/11/2005 2:17:07 PM PDT by TexasCajun
WASHINGTON The federal commission that probed the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks was told twice about "Able Danger," a military intelligence unit that had identified Mohamed Atta and other hijackers a year before the attacks, a congressman close to the investigation said Wednesday.

Would love to ask Sandy "Burglar" that question...
Clinton's legacy...not a damn thing good about it.
I just shake my head and think WTF?
after work read ping
Salmon Pak didn't make it into the final report, although it was in a staff report in December 2003.
I don't think there was mention of Gore's Commission that declared cockpit doors should be secured to prevent hijacking and taking over the plane, but then the Clinton administration backed down when the airlines balked and Tom Daschle's wife (lobbyist) worked on him.
I don't believe there was any mention of this:

Less than two months before 9/11/01, the state-controlled Iraqi newspaper Al-Nasiriya carried a column headlined, American, an Obsession called Osama Bin Ladin. (July 21, 2001)
In the piece, Baath Party writer Naeem Abd Muhalhal predicted that bin Laden would attack the US with the seriousness of the Bedouin of the desert about the way he will try to bomb the Pentagon after he destroys the White House.
The same state-approved column also insisted that bin Laden will strike America on the arm that is already hurting, and that the US will curse the memory of Frank Sinatra every time he hears his songs an apparent reference to the Sinatra classic, New York, New York.

There are hundreds more of these that were not in the 9/11 Commission Report.
Kinda like the Warren Report with no mention of Lee Harvey Oswald.

It's enough to make you scream.
I will wait for the facts to come it. But it appears right now that the 911 commission engaged in deliberate whitewashing of the Gorelick/Clinton Wall.
This could be a blockbuster story if the blogs keep on it until the Old Media has to notice. Especially with the spin that covering up the Clinton/China connection was the impetus for the Wall in the first place.
Hillary might not come out of this one unscathed.
"What else didn't make it into the 911 report?"
What kind of attacks the "Second wave" attacks were to be. IN the report it said KSM said he was too busy to pursue those, but omitted what they were to be.
do you think we are at least getting some concessions for letting them slide?
She was from a family group and sounded as tho she was quite familiar with the Commission and the process.
She stated that the information came into the committee thru Gorelick and one other and it was they who decided what information was forwarded to other members.
And aside from freepers and a few congresscritters, most people don't care.
This, for one thing:
The Democrats wouldn't agree to include it.
Thanks for the recap links...ping for later reading. Need to brush up details again.
National Geographic is advertising thier 9.11 in-depth series or two-day event or something. I want to brush up on facts before I watch the spinsters versions.
Gorelick was in charge of disseminating information to the full committee and made sure, naturally, that Able Danger never saw the light of day.
BTW, did you see the FrontPage article from a year or so ago about why the Wall was created? To protect Clinton from investigations between different agencies regarding his fund raising from the Chinese and selling them technology.
It didn't hurt that agencies couldn't talk together either about TWA 800, OKC, the first WTC bombing, etc.
We all condemn our intelligence agencies, but the FBI was onto Atta. Able Danger was onto Atta.
They just couldn't DO anything. Because of Clinton.
.....this has NOTHING to do with the....'INS'....move on
I cannot forget how despicable the 9/11 hearings were: the show trial of Condi Rice conducted by Ben Veniste and the useful idiots who would applaud every time he grilled her. Richard Clarke grandstanding to the MSM and the audience, which seemed like it was the same audience for the Bill Maher show. Chris Matthews and CNN's portrayal of the 'Jersey Girls' (the liberal template for Cindy Sheehan was mastered here) as representative of all 9/11 families. What a joke that the big bad Clinton admin was tough on terror.
It's easier to read this link. Everything I posted is on it and more, in chronological order.
No, I did not see that. Do you have a link?
Don't scream..write our politicans. Rush is right (as usual) the busy bodies in the Beltway oare motivated by three things above all else...well four in the case of The Swimmer:
and above all else
Oh the swimmer? Booze.
Anyway...it's fear of losing elections that really motivates them, fear of losing power, prestige, etc...
We need to write very calm but pointed letter to each of our elected representatives in D.C. (Sadly my two Senators are Durbin and Obama)...both with emails, snail mail letters, and phone calls. It's clear that the 09/11 Commission didn't do their job, it's clear that the Clinton Administration utterly failed in it's job to protect America, and it's clear that Bush need to shove the "new tone" business out the door...now.
I forgot the link:
Further proof Clinton's administration was asleep at the wheel...
Billy Jeff only wanted to be POTUS. He did not want to do the job, that would have been too stressfull. Same with the Hildabeast...she just wants to be POTUS so she can make everyone miserable.
For the eight years of the "Clintoons" I, like you, shaked my head muttering "WTF?"
Fortunately, with FR and the New Media, the Truth has a way of bubbling to the surface.
The old media is never going to report this straight. ever. Just as Rather never came clean even when cornered like a rat. They may be surprised if it becomes a blockbuster story without their participation.
Right here; why Gorelick created that wall for Clinton:
Can you imagine how politically correct the Janet Reno justice department must have been?
How about the info about Building 7 and how Silverstein said to implode it? Yeah, imagine, NOTHING about Building 7's collapse made it into the report. Makes you wonder, doesn't it?!
I guess Sandy B. didn't get all the documents. Depending on which "staff" members these might be, no one else may ever "get" them either.
I think we're almost at the point where that just doesn't matter anymore.
The Democrats wouldn't agree to include it.
Of course they wouldn't agree to include it. It was ammo to use against Bush. And now they're trying to screw Rove. It becomes progressively more difficult to trust the Democrats.
Letsee FOX earn their chops by running with this story. If they don't what good are they?
And funded with the sweat of your brow.
Why Gorelick created that wall for Clinton:
There is no reason, other than cya, as to why pre-9/11 information concerning the hijackers did not make it into the report of the commission.
The dems were actually very skilled in carrying out the true purpose of the Commission --which apparently was to obscure the fact that the clintonistas were in possession of ample information in advance of the plot, but the innate nature of the America-hating, criminal-loving left-wing dimocrats prevented any semblance of effective law enforcement in the matter.
It will take a sustained and significant effort to educate people on this blatant cover-up, because the MSM is already working feverishly to bury this story.
ping for later
Don't worry, last time posting image... Just posting for those who haven't seen it. It fits so well into the conversation.
Boys and girls, can you say, "The Dems and GOP are in cahoots"??
Question: Exactly WHO "permitted" Sandy Berger to pilfer the classified information nobody's allowed to see?
FNC has the resources, and the story is at least as interesting as Natalie Holloway, AND BTW its critical to national security since Hillary wants to be president.
As I said - if Fox is interested in 'reporting while we decide' they should ram this story down the publics throats with at least as much energy & determination as the rest of the MSM devoted to, say, Iran Contra.
I suspected that very thing yesterday. Weldon probably knows it already and is just setting the table...
That's the game they play. They can champion forgeries and when they're proven so... plead 'sloppiness'... a 'simple mistake'... 'no-harm-done'.
Harm HAS been done... and the MSM needs to made accountable.
