A year before the 9/11 attacks, Clinton administration lawyers told a group of military intelligence officers that information they had developed on 9/11 ringleader Mohamed Atta could not be shared with the FBI, saying of Atta himself: "You can't even touch him - it doesn't matter what information you have."
Rep. Curt Weldon, who helped develop the military intelligence group code-named "Able Danger," delivered the bombshell revelation in an interview Thursday with WABC Radio host Sean Hannity.
WELDON: In September of 2000 we tried on three occasions to take the information we had developed and pass it along to the FBI so they could follow up and take action against this [al-Qaida] cell and perhaps bring in Atta and question him and do whatever else was necessary. Three times we were turned down by lawyers in the administration.
HANNITY: We're talking about lawyers in the Clinton administration?
WELDON: Yes, it was the Clinton administration. Lawyers said there were two reasons why you can't do that. And they even put stickies over the face of Mohamed Atta on this chart they had. They said: "He's here legally. He's either got a green card or he's got a visa. So you can't even touch him - it doesn't matter what information you have." [END OF EXCERPT]
Moments later, Weldon said he was determined to find out who it was who ultimately gave the order to protect the lead 9/11 hijacker.
WELDON: The American people need to have answers. They need to have answers about who made the decision to stop our military intelligence from sharing information with the FBI, and how high up the ladder that went.
Did it stop at DoD? Or was the Justice Department involved in that decision? Or was the White House involved in that decision? [END OF EXCERPT]
Clinton could never sense a national security threat. That part of his brain is missing.
I guess the only way he has survived is via underhanded political retaliation and using the 'Vast Left Wing Coverup Machine'.
Many have said that Clinton should be tried for treason.
Is he immune from that?
Meanwhile... back at the outhouse things are starting to pile up.
If that's true, why hadn't some group "claimed responsibility" for it? Usually 2 or 3 groups come forward.
Well, I found that July 18th 1996 Video on C-Span and ordered it just moments ago, 6 minute news conference with questions for $60.00. I'm a business owner so it doesn't matter what the cost. I'll post that online somewhere when I receive it in a few weeks, as I missed that one, and I'll bet a whole slew of people missed it too. I can't wait to see it and post it for all to see. He knew everything and all the time too!

I wonder where this will lead.............
Of course it will never be allowed to go anywhere..........
So our intelligence gathering system was working after all.
911 can laid directly at the feet of the Clinton administration.
They have blood on their hands. B*stards.
http://raylahr.entryhost.com/Air_Force.pdf Also, please review the history of the investigation, particularly in "Summary".
Also, please note this quote as to the sheer number of witnesses:
"We have access to 107 witnesses on 4 aircraft, 19 boats, and 31 locations ashore. They were located in a 360° circle around the missile engagement. Their live testimony alone will prove the aircraft was shot down. This is why the Justice Department has kept air crash investigators away from witnesses for 2 1/2 years and also one reason they are conducting a malicious show-trial prosecution of author and outside investigator James Sanders and his wife."
Because Cmdr. Donaldson was brought into the Sanders case as a defense consultant, he was first able to see detailed photographs, taken by Mr. Sanders of the Center Tank left side of body wall fracture pieces, in late March. These pictures were taken by Mr. Sanders at the request of Cmdr Donaldson during the discovery trial phase as allowed by a Federal judge. The pictures strongly suggest the left side of body wall of the center tank was blown into the tank at extremely high energy, not outward as the NTSB theory implies. When Cmdr. Donaldson called the NTSB and left voice-mail requesting to see the NTSB "Fracture Edge Analysis" of CWT left side of body wall parts, an NTSB attorney called back in minutes in a somewhat anxious state. The lawyer suggested such testing need not be done. Incredulous, Cmdr Donaldson informed him that any NTSB Final Report blaming a center wing tank failure without determining which way that wall exploded would be a farce."The photos, which were once on the net from the reassembled liner, which I saw, plus one set of radar images from tapes (I also saw), are now sealed by court order.
Regardless what anyone says, Fight 800 was shot down by a missile and the government covered / is covering it up. Which group or persons are responsible? I don't know. You can simply connect the dots. To this day a shoulder fired S2A is a threat to all aircraft upon approach or takeoff. With physically unsecured borders, it's just a matter of time before another "center fuel tank decides to blow itself up."
Well, I found that July 18th 1996 Video on C-Span
Way to go! Is there some way you can alert me when you post to FR? I'll keep my eyes open for it. Thanks!
I have unlimited bandwidth!
I nominate the moniker for another doublet for 'Old Maid'. Ranks right up there with 'Meano Reno' and 'Gorilla Gorelick.'
The word "treason" isn't really adequate to describe the KKKlintons, Janet Reno, maddog Albright, Wesley Clarke, Jamie Gorelick et. al. We need to have a witchcraft trial, and burn all those lunatics at the stake.
We, AMERICA, will pay for the next 100 years for Klintoon!!!--The pres elected by less than 1/2 of the less than 1/2 that voted....Dang that Perot guy I admit I voted for!
She was on the committee.
"This has Clinton inadequancies written all over it!"
Yep. No thought given to the dangers of not sharing information.
"I can even understand them covering up now, but stonewalling the FBI while Clinton was in office?"
True, it looks as though the FBI didn't know who Atta was or where Atta was. That was the effect of not getting information from the Defense Department.
???? What kind of protection could Atta possibly have "earned?" He apparently had friends in very HIGH places & I don't mean Allah. Was he connected to OK City bombing? Some sort of American operative gone bad?
I don't get it.
Maybe someone can explain it to me. Even if he had a visa, green card or whatever, so what? Why oh why, if intelligence suggested a threat from a non-citizen did that make him untouchable?
Is there a true legal reason or was it simply not to upset the Muslim community?
If someone finds the video, ping me please!
Scroll to the bottom. Is that the link?
This information was apparently known a year prior to 9/11. Was this vital information not passed on to President Bush after his election in 2000? If not, why not? If it was, did Bush pursue it in the 10 months he was in office before 9/11?
Okay tin foil or not.... You have to ask the question..." why were they so specific that they couldnt touch this guy specifically." It does not make rational sense unless they knew of him personally. I mean why cover his face if he was a every day schmoe? I hear a very definite...uh oh.....in my head.
heavy duty foil....
Was this attack planned ( or known by clinton) before the election a year before in order to extend clintons time in office due to a marshall law order?
I disagree. It was corruption, on a criminal level, plain and simple. The incompetence was a side dish, not the main course.
Enormous implications. Hill must be tearing her hair out.
Mohamed Atta or his associates must have been blackmailing Clinton. Same with the Chinese. As long as they didn't do anything while he was president, he was going to leave them alone. Same with OBL; or he would have grabbed him when Sudan offered to turn OBL over to the USA.
Who said character doesn't count?
WAS GORELICK IN THE ROOM AT THIS MEETING?!!!
Seems to be embargoed again on O'really. He ain't touchin' it.
Well, I can't believe that the Bushies DIDN'T know about Able Danger all along. If they didn't, they were as blindsided as the media.
I think this scandal will go all the way up to the presidency -- the Clinton presidency.
Bush held back on it just like he was forgiving about everything else Clinton did -- like the whole trashing of the White House thing.
I think the Bushies, with all the dirt they had hanging over the Clintons, were really hoping that Clinton, as the titular head of the Democrat party, would keep his people reigned in a bit, and that the "new tone" would be given a chance.
I mean, Able Danger is all water under the bridge, isn't it? Bill Clinton and Papa Bush are playing golf together, right?
But finally, W's forebeanance was worn out with the latest Clinton attack on Judge Roberts, especially combined with all of the other continued liberal attacks on every other Bush move.
I think (hope) that these Able Danger revelations are (finally) a shot across the bow to the Clinton democrat party that they have reached the limit, and if they don't start playing by the rules, a lot more is to follow.
is this guy pushing a book? if it went down exactly like that, it seems Atta was being protected.
It's not so indirect. We were getting blasted and blasted and blasted. I don't think that the fact we haven't get hit maybe is because we're doing so great, but maybe our security is just a little more back to normal.
The Clinton record
WTC. Oklahoma City. US Embassies in Africa. The USS Cole. 911
Go Slick Willy!
In other words, is there another 'wall' memorandum (or related documents) buried in DOD files of the General Counsel's office, etc.????? Was any Gorelick policy barring such information-sharing in effect at the Pentagon throughout the Clinton years? It's a provocative question.
Such a document, if it exists and can be unearthed from the Pentagon's bureaucracy, would be truly damning.... especially if Rumsfeld could do an Ashcroft-type presentation of it at a press conference!!
There is one thing that has always bothered me about 9/11 and Hill and Bill. The fact that her nemesis and our beloved former freeper Barbara Olsen was on board one of the highjacked jets. It's probably a terrible coincidence but it has always raised my eyebrow. On that morning Bill was in Australia and Hill never showed up to some meeting on Capitol Hill IIRC.
No matter hows hard the MSM is trying to continue to hide this, it is not just simply going to go away.
Incredible how much the Clinton administration has damaged America. And to think his witch wants to run for president! Damn, they both should be in jail.
I agree as many do, and it did not take this recent BIG FINALE of discovery of the Clinton travesties against this country....they both should have been in the slammer a long time ago.
It is going to be VERY TELLING as to how the media, and our government handles this DISCOVERY OF SUCH INCOMPETENCE AND POLITICAL CHICANERY AND GROSS NEGLIGENCE !!!! IT WILL TELL YOU ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT / MEDIA COMPLEX.
And don't forget that the Clintons had already removed every state attorney upon their election, so in cases where a US atty. had to be used, they were already "cleared" partisans who would accede to her new dictates. Boy, they plotted and schemed all this from the get go, those traitors!
Rep. Curt Weldon said today on Fox News that there are 15 unexamined boxes of documents(!), and now 11 witnesses(!!), (NOT just 1), who are willing to testify under oath.
He also is calling for 9/11 Staffers to be questioned under oath re: their evident negligence, &/or close-mindedness, &/or cover-up behavior, and/or stonewalling.
Under little-known, but established, US Supreme Court-sanctioned precedent, Jamie Gorelick, as a former Federal bureaucrat, can & should be sued civilly for gross dereliction of duty, for contributory negligence and culpability in 3,000 deaths (& counting), and for gross negligence as the DOJ "Wall of Separation" memo author, which greatly & unconscionably expanded the "letter of the law" to, in effect, protect spies and terrorists.
This in turn may lead to other higher up Clinton Administration officials being revealed as complicit or culpable under discovery, deposition and courtroom testimony.
Certainly the infamous Gorelick DOJ memo was consistent with the highly cautious and overly legalistic approach of the Clinton Administration (& The Clinton White House) toward National Security, espionage, and terrorism issues.
Hope he takes his time with this, drags it out for a while..

Do you know if anyone has ever compiled a list of the 'new' state attorneys who took affice immediately following Jan. 20, 1993?
Simple...Gorelick was making the decisions on who to interview and what to report.
SOP for bureacratic whitewash jobs.
Sure...as long as a REPUBLICAN is the current resident.
If it's one of the MSM's own, it becomes a non-story that the masses never even hear about, let alone are whipped into a frenzy over a la Richard Nixon.
