Skip to comments.Rumsfeld says that 9/11 Commission briefed about Able Danger

Rumsfeld is having a press conference. Under the Fox News Alert the big banner read:
Rumsfeld says that Able Danger briefed the 9/11 Commission.
Did anyone hear his remarks on this matter; all I've seen is the banner.
I was wondering when Rummy would weigh in. This is a good sign...
Who had a TV on??
Did you hear the press conference? If yes, please fill us in.
We both agreed on another thread that if Rumsfeld is willing to go on the record with this, he believes Shaffer and is willing to tie his fortune to Shaffer.
Good sign - that's a friggin' bombshell!
Oh Goodie .. I can't wait to hear the 9/11 Commissions excuse for this one
How many excuses are we up to now ??
I lost count
I turned the television on about 1:30 est. The banner under The Fox News Alert was up for a long time so I'm assuming Rumsfeld was asked about Able Danger at the press conference.
Didn't Kean, et al already say they met with or were briefed on Able Danger, after they said they didn't?
I didn't have the TV .. but I had the Tape running
LOL. While, friggin' bombshells are good signs, they're great signs too. I shouldn't always be so coy or understated. ;^)
"that's a friggin' bombshell!"
With a news-bunker-busting nuclear penetrator.
There had to be ONE Rumsfeld groupie watching the presser..
Ok, but has he said WHAT Able Danger briefed the 9/11 commission on? Did they share the information about Atta? The commission has said that their staff spoke with Able Danger, but were never told about the Atta information.
Have to go exercise; will check in later. Wish I'd heard the question during the press conference but I was convinced by another freeper to put up a thread about this matter.
Hopefully someone can fill in the blanks.
And I think we're approaching double digits of excuses by the 9/11 Commission :-)
Who was it today Spongebob?
I heard him say that the commission WAS briefed on AD - you know, the very thing that they first claimed they weren't and now are claiming doesn't matter?
*sigh* More parsing. We know they were briefed on Able Danger. Did they get the name "Atta" with that, or just a briefcase full of documents that did NOT include the name?
Yes, I think Kean finally admitted that staff was briefed about Able Danger. Banner on FNC said Commission was briefed. Perhaps that's just shortcut by FNC by not saying it was staff.
The sticking point seems to be whether the chart had a picture of Atta.
When you watch the tape, could you ping me regarding Rumsfield's comments about this?
Like you, I saw Rummy on TV....and the note under the ALERT banner...but didn't hear the remarks...had TV on MUTE...Sorry!
You mean Deitrich Snell, the Clinton flunky and, along with Jamie Gorelick, the gatekeeper of information that the committee saw?
There goes Cindy Sheehan in the news. This is officially big news.
LOL .. naaaa .. no cartoon .. well kind of
I was trying to get the video from the Joan Baez concert to load and work .. so I hit the record button and turned off the TV
I still can't get it to load ... grrr
I'd be interested to know if Rumsfeld made the distinction between the staff of the Commission or the COmmission itself. And if he mentioned Atta.
I have GOT to go exercise (I just ate a piece of cake with lunch!)
Dunno, yet. Methinks, however, it will become a he, he, he, she, he, he, he said vs. lying 9-11 Commission said situation...
Watch you don't get trapped with: It's all about Atta". There were others here before him that were on those planes on 9-11 and he contacted them before he arrived.
They forgot and they left thier notes in Sandy Berger's pants.
And how does Sec. Rumsfeld know this? And when did he know it?
Man, I am usually the last person to call BS on anything, but this is starting to light up in neon letters.
Hmm... so we seem to have multiple confirmations that Able Danger existed, and that it is substantially what it is alleged to be.
Why are the documents gone? What happened to them?
Bush smacks Cindy around a little today.
I didn't see it! I am babysitting, and cartoons were on!!! Dang, dang, dang!!
Drat! I missed it. The TV was on in the background with the sound off. I've got Rush on.
I'm bound by internet at work..I didn't see it..hopefully FoxNews will cover it at 6 pm.
The guy on MSNBC just said, "President Bush interrupted his vacation for the second time in two days to make his case for Iraq..."
They're just NOT going to give the vacation thing up.
I looked up from my computer to see the banner. Did not hear it but saw it printed under Rummy during the Pentagon Briefing.
I've been telling you for YEARS you need a second TV next to that computer!
Good, that publicity-ho deserve a b-slap from the Prez. She's been cussing and lying about him and this country long enough.
Sounds like the doo doo is about to hit the fan hard!
Gorelick must be on the potty about now..... Or maybe she was just getting off then reassumed the position... LOL.
Calling the Jersey Girls. Pick up the white phone!!!
Seems as tho Rummy dropped a MOAB on Tom Kean and Co.
