TAMPA - With details emerging Thursday that the Sept. 11 commission omitted crucial information from its final report last year, a group of 9/11 widows called for creation of a new independent panel.
"I'm very disturbed, and I want to get some answers," said Kristen Breitweiser, whose husband, Ronald, died in the World Trade Center. "I want to know what the truth is."
Her organization, the September 11th Advocates, or the Jersey Girls, was instrumental in pushing for creation of the Sept. 11 commission.
On Thursday, the now-disbanded commission became embroiled in controversy, after acknowledging it omitted crucial information about ringleader Mohammed Atta in its final report last summer.
Former commission members planned to issue a "comprehensive statement" Thursday afternoon addressing the latest developments but they balked, saying they were still reviewing documents.
In a scathing letter Wednesday to the former co-chairmen of the commission, Weldon said, "The commission's refusal to investigate Able Danger after being notified of its existence, and its recent efforts to feign ignorance of the project while blaming others for supposedly withholding information on it, brings shame on the commissioners."
Early in the week, Al Felzenberg, who had been the commission's chief spokesman, said the panel was unaware of intelligence specifically naming Atta.
But he said subsequent information provided Wednesday confirmed that the commission had been aware of the intelligence.
It did not make it into the final report because the information was not consistent with what the commission knew about Atta's whereabouts before the attacks, he said.
Citing the latest revelations, Breitweiser, the Sept. 11 widow, called the findings of the Sept. 11 commission "an utterly hollow report."

Oh, man I am SO laughing right now...
Go get 'em, boys (er, girls).
The Jersey Girls becoming Willy's problem?
It's Christmas in August!
Will the name GORELICK cross the Jersey girls lips?
For the first time, I agree with this woman.
Starting a betting pool: how long before someone talks to Kristen and gets her back on the right talking points?
you can't handle the truth Kristen.
the truth is that Clinton's stewardship of this nations military, intelligence, and law enforcement apparatus over his 8 years led directly to 9-11, 7 months after he left office.
Able Danger: another gift that keeps on giving.
They have already tried to exonerate Jamie "The Wall" Gorelick by pinning the fault on Jonathan Reno.
her cell phone is ringing right now. she will be sitting on Chris Matthews lap this week spinning it against Bush.
Not without a hyphen between the E and the L.
I wonder how long it will take the lovely and gracious Mizz Breitweiser to discover that amongst her hard-left crowd, no dissent is tolerated?
That would not fit with the Jersey Girls' political aims!
Kristen is perhaps a little confused on the dates, 2000 being an election year and all. She probably thinks Pres. Bush was in office in 2000. When she realizes Able Danger occurred during the Clinton years, she'll quite down.
