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.)
Thank you so much for the encouragements, nopardons!
Let me kick out a bizarre concept.
Was Clinton trying to weaken the U.S., so we would not
be powerful enough to face our enemies? Since, we would not
be strong enough to stand alone, we would eventually join
a world conglomeration of some sort. Clinton, of course,
would be one of the leaders.
If you think about his actions, what did they accomplish
other than to divide us, and strengthen our enemies?
Did he really go after Al-Qaeda? Did he give technology to
the Chinese to make them a threat to Taiwan, Japan, Korea,
Russia, India, and us?
Did he go to Africa to start trade, or help alleviate their
wars, or strengthen whatever democracies they have there?
Part of his strategy may have been to keep us self-absorbed,
and not see what was going on internationally.
Do you recall how his office went after the Branch Davidians,
and Elian Gonzales, but shot off a few tomahawks at some
tents in Afghanistan? Was that an even response? Why didn't
he use his troopers to raid Al-Qaeda offices(or caves), instead of
Elian Gonzales' family relations?
Kinda makes you wonder.
The linkage of Iraq and al-Queda is the most dangerous fact that the Left must face. That linkage destroys the Democrat party. Because of its vociferous attempts to deny it. That linkage also destroys the anti-War Left's credibility or pretensions and BY ITSELF justifies the War.
This must be pounded into the public mind.
It's just the simple truth. I have always held you in great esteem, for all of your work here. You're one of FR's treasures! :-)
Why has the Bush administration continued to employ Frances Townsend?
Are we talking about European, US or Canadian football?
Charities do not have the tens of billions necessary to rebuild these areas.
Congressional efforts there will be rather quick whereas this investigation needs to be drawn out for months.
The Leftist propaganda machine is so successful that most conservatives have internalized some of its falsehoods never knowing they are just that. It even controls the institutions most antithetical to Leftism, the churches.
Isn't that the truth?
Take your pick. I also wonder why you hang out with us "slaves"?
This is one of the best threads I have ever seen on FR definitely a keeper.
Calling Americans "slaves" would do it for many. Stupidity on a thread like this is completely inappropriate. As to my name look up "irony".
I did a search on this site on Weldon after his speech back in June on all this, and many considered him a kook. What a turnaround... I listened to Dom on Monday evening, as well, and it is important to point out that he mentioned shredding after 9/11 too. Why is he waiting until 9/8? Hes giving a speech to the 9/11 families, I believe. Appropriate, in my book, since no one seems to be taking him seriously. Well... maybe now...
I don't. I think she knowingly destroyed our internal capability to protect against espionage and worse. White's memo was rather apt.
Unfortunately for America, we had a profoundly corrupt President at the helm when this turf war broke out. He used it to his advantage - to deeply politicize the control of intelligence and law enforcement both.
You're right. Much came together - it was the perfect storm...
