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.
hmm....thinks she has any regrets being a kerry shill and being used by the lib media???
I hope she has AFLAC.
I wouldn't want to be her pet(s) about now.
Will Kristen Breitweiser now admit that she has been used by the
vast left-wing cosnpiracy to blame 9/11 on President Bush?
I'm really sick of 9/11 widows who think that the world stops and starts at their convenience, but I agree with them on this. Finally, they're making some noise about something important instead of making vague accusations that "Bush knew 9/11 was going to happen" and bitching about every memorial whose design wasn't submitted to them for approval.
Yo, Kristen, it's time to realize you were a tool of your leftist friends. Come over to the people who will love you as a human being, not a symbol.
They'll have to spell it out to her in words with very few syllables.
Kristin Breitweiser is really just furious Cindy Sheehan is the partisan anti-war moonbat Du Juor.
Yep, I should've figured that this was too good to be true.
Never thought I'd find common ground with the Jersey Girls, but, I agree. The American people have a right to know what happened, what led to the intelligence failures.
How can we prevent another 9/11, if we are not willing to take an unflinching look at why we weren't able to stop this one? No political party gets a pass.
And I definitely want to know what Sandy Berger took out of the National Archives and destroyed. Why did he get off with a slap on the wrist? Those were Classified Documents he stole.
The jersey girls hatred of Bush is dwarfed only by their desire for attention, and it's been awhile since they got any air play. It will be hard for the favorite darlings of the media to be ignored. Bring out the cameras, it's time for another stage panel, complete with interviews and outrage.
Monday?--In for $10 to Free Republic!
That Duck must be getting tired by now!
LOL! Maybe we can also pay for another commission to investigate the 9/11 commission
I saw ole Kristin on the cable shows on Friday...and her lips have taken on the pursed look of Eleanor Clift, Katrina Vanden Heuvel, and Ceci Connolly...
What she hasn't realized, I guess, is that if she keeps it up, her face will "stick that way", like the above named women's have.
... Women that is fake hopping mad partisan political tool should not complain about the Kangaroo court she help create
Hmmm...I wonder if Perky Couric and the rest of the MSM gang will give her the same amount of publicity as they did during the first 9/11 Commission hearing.
Liberal women spend so much time yelling and screaming, that their faces are beyond "lifting"...Inner beauty leads to an outward calm (ie: Laura Bush)
Soooo....Ms. Breitweiser now agrees with FReepers?? LOL!!!
It's sadly pathetic when the vehiclle that propeled you into the national and political spotlight CRUMBLES TO DUST BEFORE YOUR VERY EYES!!!!
its not just the Dems, other then Weldon, do you see any high ranking people on our side saying anything?
Well, does Mark Steyn count?
Uh-oh. What's the poor MSM and DEM establishment to do now? LOL
Why, apparently FOX was dismissing this as well. Though I'm not surprised.
I'll be curious to find out if she knows this occured under the Clinton administration, and whether she pursues it if informed of the fact.
congressman, senators, cabinet members - people in a position to do something about getting an investigation going. that's what I want to see.
Maybe she can camp out in Crawford in President Bush's driveway, too, and demand that he set up a new commission.
Or, she could camp out in Jamie Gorelick's drive. That would be more fun, but no one would care.
I've seen this in numerous comments by the professional "left" in this country ~ here at FR we know better ~ so let them rage for awhile. Then we strike.
