Skip to comments.BREAKING!!! - Weldon says records were ordered destroyed!! (Able Danger)
Posted on 08/29/2005 6:23:38 PM PDT by Lancey Howard
Congressman Curt Weldon (R - Pennsylvania) gave another exclusive interview to Dom Giordano this evening (Monday) and broke the news that he will be giving a speech on September 8th (next Monday) during which he will present yet another 'Able Danger' witness. This new witness will attest (and will swear under oath when called) that he was "ordered to destroy records" relating to the 'Able Danger' program.
This order to destroy the records occurred prior to 9-11-01. Weldon intimated that it happened during the Clinton Administration.
The witness, who Weldon did not name, says that he was ordered to destroy records and was threatened with jail if he failed to comply. Weldon said that he has the names of the people involved, including the person who gave the order, and HE WILL NAME THEM in his speech.
Congressman Weldon also said that his staff has met with Senator Arlen Specter's (R - Pennsylvania) staff regarding the upcoming Judiciary Committee hearings. Weldon wants to be sure that everybody is on the same page. Weldon also said that he will do whatever he has to do to make sure that ALL the facts come out and that the process "is not manipulated".
Curt Weldon is like a pit bull on a steak. He expressed disgust with the "incompetence" of the 9-11 Commission and said that the victims of the 9-11 terror attacks deserve answers. Weldon is determined to see that they get them.
Weldon did express confidence in Tim Roehmer and John Lehman and speculated that perhaps the poor job done by the Commission was the result of an incompetent staff. Weldon sounded amazed and disappointed that so much important information was either glossed over or swept under the rug by the Commission.
Weldon will give his September 8th speech either to the National Press Club or to a "9-11 families" group which has asked him to speak. He apparently hasn't nailed down the exact venue yet.
(For those unfamiliar with Dom Giordano, he is a very good conservative local talk show host here in the Philadelphia area, an area which includes Curt Weldon's district. Weldon comes on Dom's show often and, like this evening, sometimes breaks news.)
It would probably have been someone in the DOD that had the records destroyed. I sure hope it was before Bush was elected!
Oh, he definitely had the chart in May 2002 (the 'unclassified' version - he said there was a classified version as well). Let's hope that he does have all his ducks in a row and is just torturing the libs with one revelation at a time.... (oops, is that against the Geneva Conventions??). Here's a link to the video from 2002 where he shows the ABLE DANGER chart:
Prior to 9/11, or prior to 1/01? A new administration taking over the reigns?
Remember: Pre-9-11 the big fear was that mil intelligence would be seen doing intelligence work on citizens, hence The Wall. They may have destroyed the data out of fear of being accused of such a thing, apparently never dreaming that they were getting rid of what could have prevented an attack on our country more deadly than Pearl Harbor.
"Weldon reminds me of Joseph McCarthy for some reason. "
Please god...we need another dozen McCarthys to attack the Islamofascist infiltration and Communist infiltration of our country.
Someone keep Janet Reno safe...
I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance.... /sorry, couldn't resist.
It's far, far, FAR better for this to break AFTER the Labor Day weekend. And in case you don't know, it took forever ( years ) for the MSM to get the populace interested in Watergate. So take a deep breathe, relax, and watch as this stuff grows and grows and GROWS, until it is SO explosive, that even the MSM has to talk about it.
"He expressed disgust with the "incompetence" of the 9-11 Commission and said that the victims of the 9-11 terror attacks deserve answers. Weldon is determined to see that they get them."
Oooh but the dear Jersey Girls don't want to hear this kind of stuff. They want the truth, it must have been all GWB's fault.
I don't care who it was I just want answers! Let the cards fall where they will.
"Nothing was breathing down their necks at the time."
Oh! Your question just gave me a chill down my back. Made me remember in the news just after 9/11 that someone somewhere made BIG money betting on a plane crash for 9/11.....
9/8 is a Thursday.
Clinton ordered ALL Able Danger documents to be destroyed because of their Chinagate findings. The Able Danger findings on Al Qaeda were destroyed to eliminate all evidence that Able Danger ever existed.
Hehehe... This is great. The Senate hearings start on the 6th and right in the middle of it, Weldon is going to drop a bombshell on the Clinton Administration.
The MSM is going to have their hands full.
Why isn't the Intelligence Committee hearing this? It seems odd that it's the Judiciary Committee.
Good for Weldon. My $$'s on him.
Thank you so much for the ping as I'd surely have missed this.
Like a pit bull on a steak?
Forget that, like a pit bull on a three year old!
i'm thinking Weldon should stay away too...
