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.)
I am getting to the site, but there are "errors on the page", whatever that means. Maybe its really busy right now.
Thanks for your interest.
But I find it incomprehensible, that I have to argue the facts and be upbraided for posting the TRUTH, by someone who calls himself a Conservative and then says that he came here to "learn". Sheeeeeeeeeeeesh!
It sure is; Alamo-girl IS an absolute treasure!
I'll sure second THAT emotion. (along with another comment you made on some darned thread I read within the last few minutes)
Indeed. It is what Rush calls, "the liberal template" and what others have referred to as "the liberal default".
For example, the liberal default is that government is helpful to the poor and therefore any attempt to reduce the size and scope of government amounts to an attack against the poor. That default position cannot be challenged - - it is the template. Mentioning, for example, that the socialist welfare state, (aka, "the New Deal", "the Great Society", etc.) has destroyed the urban black family unit is strictly verbotten.
Go to www.FoxNews.com then click on the upper right side where it says video.
After you click on video it should give you the option to download the Fox News video player.
And whatever else I said, that you also agree with with, thanks, again. But then, we've been in agreement about most things for years. LOL
I hope that you and yours are all doing well.
Glad to help and hope it works
Weldon had better watch his Six.
I will agree that agencies such as the NSA, DIA, CIA & FBI were not as hindered prior to "The Wall". However, the Military Services themselves WERE very much hindered in investigating US Persons - especially domestic, but also foreign!
This was more due to the military infiltration of subversive student organisations in the 60's and early 70's than it was FISA & Co.
FISA and all subsequent legislation & EO's merely reinforced the already existing barrier bewteen the military and the civilian departments.
I grant that NSA & DIA are technically "military", but they are separate from, say US Army Counterintelligence. This is my point. AD was a truely military operation (apparently with some contractor involvment). The DoD lawyers, rightly or wrongly concluded that ATTA & Co. were "US Persons" and this alone was sufficient to shut down AD and cause all records to be destroyed. The Chinese aspect just adds another twist to the whole bloody mess. AD *might* have been able to get away with the investigation *if* prior approval had been obtained from the AG. However, the hurdles involved in getting approval for such were very high, and, most likely, if approved, the operation would have been conducted by NSA / the FBI - according to the powers that be, the military itself investigating "US Persons" is just not kosher.
Bookmarking "Chinagate" at 432, I think.
Thank you both oh so very much for all of your kindness and encouragement!!!
We must constantly re-examine our assumptions and the lessons of our lives.
And the latter is a rotten shame. It is as if the Jews believed the Nazi party to be their friend and protector.
I would say that the first major political event heavily publicized on TV was the destruction of Senator McCarthy. "Have you no shame, Senator?"
Then we have the Orwellian shift where the Enemies of Freedom (the Hollywood Ten) became Noble Victims of Evil.
