If the dots were ever connected during the Clinton administration he'd have to go to war - a real war with boots on the ground. In order to avoid this Clinton treated all terrorism as a law enforcement effort as not to have to invade hostile states that aided Al Queda.
Is it so much to ask to see Bubba dragged through the streets like our guys in Mogadishu? This isn't about politics....it's about treason.
One of the witnesses said ABLE DANGER was shut down in Feb. 2001. Technically, that was early in the Bush administration, so the MSM (when they are forced to report this story) will try to portray it as a Bush administration action, as will the Demagogues Howie Dean, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, etc. HOWEVER, it becomes clear when you review what's known of the history of the program that the controvery over the results of AD grew up in 2000, not 2001, due to unnamed "Pentagon lawyers" worried about legal issues. Lurking in the background is CHINAGATE, since the lawyers were worried about info collected on possible Chinese espionage -- names of US citizens were coming up on the searches.... but that is just a smokescreen for the fact that the Clintonlites discovered that a lot of embarrassing and ILLEGAL actitivies could be brought to light by investigations following up on the results of AD searches for info on China (AD didn't only work on Al Qaeda and terrorism issues).
I'm sorry but as Harry Truman said: "the buck stops here". Bush allowed a commission to be formed that included Jamie Gorlick et al. The fix was in before the they opened the starting gates. You cannot blame the staff and you really can't blame the Dems. They were protecting their fearless leader's legacy and trying to win an election using their normal toolbox of lies and distortions. The Republicans are the ones to blame. They let it happen and I'm betting they will be the ones to shut Weldon down. Do you really think that Arlen Specter is going to help? On a cold day in Hell Specter might just do something that would hurt his Dem Comrades. Don't hold your breath.
Slade Gorton says not to look at the Man behind the curtain.
And considering it wasn't long ago we had an 8-year streak of constant scandal, that's saying something!
I've been laying pretty low on this issue, but no more.
This could well be the most scandalous affair in the history of the United States.
It is going to be very interesting to see if Gorelick is further implicated in the coverup. She should NEVER have been able to be given credentials for that commission, nor should BenVeniste...
That's right- I forgot about the nuclear secrets for campaign money. The wall would have effectively insulated them from CIA info.
I remember reading here about an early meeting that took place shortly after Bush took office of some of the (then) new State Department employees. Jamie Gorelick walked in and sat down, and one of the stunned new people whispered to the person sitting next to her, "What is SHE doing here?"
I will search the archives and see if I can dig that old story up.
This should not surprise anyone.
Him saying that he was threatened wilh jail surprised me.
I would have thought that they would have told him that his friends and next of kin would be reading in the papers that he committed suicide.[Kinda like Admiral Border].
Might have been some serious shredding right before he got sworn in. Good point, cause Rummy would have had a cow.
Agree, where is Hillery???
If Weldon's information ends up being proven true, this could end up being the biggest government scandal/coverup in the history of this country.
Along with OKC bombing...
Not a good time to go canoeing...no sir.
I hope he's feeding all of this information to a trusted party, just in case Arkancide happens.....
Well .. Weldon isn't backing down
He's already stated on DomG's show that he doesn't care about his job .. he said he cares more about our national security and safety
The 9/11 Commission also ignored connections between Iraq and 9/11. See:
I think it's all part of the same ball of wax.
There are three minor player possibilities, as I see it:
Clarke, Gorelick, and Burgler.
Of course, the three big cheeses directing them all have name Gore, Clintoon, and 'Toon.
I'm expecting us to eventually get to the real story, something more sinister than 9/11. What was the purpose of the Gorelick wall, anyway? It was to keep something mighty big from hitting the fan.
I have read and heard these theories, but as darkward speculation and not as news. Having an eternal detest for the Clinton gang I'd never dismiss anything out of hand. But evidence and credibility are key. Hope it's there. If it isn't this will sound a little waybegone.
Empirical facts, pics, video, GOOD. Speculation with connected dots on a chart, BAD.
So I guess you're a member of the "Smear Weldon" club?
I made my last post just before I read yours. I agree precisely with your take.
Do you think CNN will run an expose of this the way they ran the biased Dead Wrong documentary several times already?
Maybe we should be asking the Clintons what they knew about 9-11 and WHEN did they know it?
Hi! Yes read it and I believe it! But have the feeling that for all the reasons she and others have given for Clinton wanting it to be strickly a Tim McVey job right up to his execution (remember the FBI files found in Detroit just before his first execution date?)the Oklahoma City Bombing is going to remain a mystery along with who shot JFK.
Maybe he is concerned for his safety?
From what I understand, Able Danger was a computer program that gathered data from many different sources and tried to tie the information all together. One thing that it apparently did was connect Clinton with China. It was able to put together dates,names, times, money, etc.
Except the original WTC bombing, OKC, TWA800, the embasssy bombings, the Cole, and an overwhelming need to run screaming from anything that remotely resembled a terrorist attack. The denial, coverups and misapplied responses surrounding these events led directly to 911.
Must be repeated.
D'oh! Thanks for the correction. I looked at my August calendar.
There is one account of a big (internal) fuss about ABLE DANGER in May 2000 (during Clinton administration) when the private contractor doing at least a key segment of the work was abruptly fired (see below). But I have the strong impression that AD was not terminated as a program until Feb. 2001 -- I'll try to find the link for that, it's somewhere on the 'ATTA' list of threads.
I was in the hearing room when they grilled Condi Rice. The bunch of 9/11 gals were clapping for every smarmy attack. I was standing against the wall behind the press table. After one outburst by them I couidn't contain myself: "Cheerleaders" I yelled. The reporters nearly jumped out of their skins. Didn't know they spooked that easy.
Ask Danny Defenbaugh- Dallas FBI.
There's soooo much to keep up with anymore..Was any of this related to PROMIS?
I am worried about Weldon's safety. The clintoons didn't come this far to be defeated now.
They sold their soul to the devil.....long time ago.
The "Smear Weldon" crowd have apparently gotten their new talking points. Comparing him to Joe McCarthy. Calling him kooky. They're really afraid of people finding out the truth about what happened.
Weldon did speak about "the chart" tonight and says he has a psuedo-copy of it but that he gave the original one to somebody else (Steve Shandler?). I was left with the impression it's in good hands.
Proud to say my cousin WASN'T there!
Burgler did NOT go to take those documents just to review them.
He had a major NEED to erase something from historical reference. This could very well be it - not "erase A-D documents" but mention of A-D itself and the fact that Atta was mentioned by them.
Oliver Stoned will make a movie about this..factual, except the President during the story will be an evil conservative republican.
Watergate had NOTHING to do with the security of the nation. This does. Massive cover-up. Sandy Berger. All of it.
Hey come see this...
LOL. Did you do that? There is nobody more talented than a FReeper. :)
