Weldon: Atta Papers Destroyed on Orders [Names to be given]
The Associated Press ^ | September 15, 2005 | By DONNA DE LA CRUZ

Posted on 09/15/2005 3:45:45 PM PDT by johnny7

WASHINGTON -- A Pentagon employee was ordered to destroy documents that identified Mohamed Atta as a terrorist two years before the 2001 attacks, a congressman said Thursday.

The employee is prepared to testify next week before the Senate Judiciary Committee and was expected to name the person who ordered him to destroy the large volume of documents, said Rep. Curt Weldon, R-Pa.

There had been talk that the person who gave the order is now part of Bush's administration.
I hope not.

This may turn out to be less costly and more revealing than the 9/11 Circus before it is all over.

On C-Span, Weldon gave a press conference around 4:45 or 5:00 today. Coverage of his comments were interrupted whenever the House returned to vote.

But he said that an Able Danger will testify under oath that he was ordered to destroy 2 terabites of material. The Library of Congress has informed Weldon that 2 terabites of material equals approximately 1/4 of all the material in the Library of Congress.

Weldon also said that the Joint Chief of Staffs under Clinton was briefed by AD folks for 3 hours and nothing happened.

He also said that in the first quarter of '01, an aide to Rumsfeld was briefed. I think the person's name is Steve Carbone.

Weldon also said that Commission member Romer told Weldon the picture couldn't have been of Atta because Atta wasn't in the country legally at that time. Weldon says the picture of Atta wasn't a driver's license or visa picture. It was a picture of Atta, purchased by a woman who was investigated what was going on in a mosque.

Weldon says he tried for days to get Tom Kean on the phone and when he finally got him, Kean only gave him five minutes and said he's follow-up, which he never did.

Weldon, Shaffer and someone else briefed the 9/11 Commission and the Commission said the information was historically insignificant. I don't know when the briefing occurred.

Weldon said that he used to support the Commission and toured the country supporting their recommendations, but they have now lost his confidence.

Valerie Plame Wilson, Greg Thielman, Baer, and Treasury Sec O'Niell were part of the Bush administration.

They also preferred Kerry- so the description means little.

We all must wonder why the Republican representatives were from liberal states and the Democratic representatives were hard, hard core people. Did The Republicans goof or was it fixed from the beginning?

It's going to be someone who was formerly in the employ of Clinton's Secretary of Air Force.

That gal planted her staff people all over Washington before she left office ~ one of them turned up as Inspector General at the USPS, Carla Corcoran. She got fired, but not after she did some irreperable harm. There are still some of these people left ~ they must be ferreted out and prosecuted as appropriate.

The USPS Board of Governors let Carla off easy ~ although the Clintonistas did not have a majority at the time, their thoughts prevailed and Carla was allowed to resign. I think Casey is to blame for that one. Maybe he's involved ~ never did trust him anyway.

"Weldon also said that Commission member Romer told Weldon the picture couldn't have been of Atta because Atta wasn't in the country legally at that time."

And if someone is not in the country legally at a particular time, then they are not in the country at all at that time.

Over ten million illegals in America country are not here at all. So those rapes and murders by illegals never happened.

Has NASA reported yet how far into space the documents would reach if the 2 TB was printed out and the pages laid end to end ?

How about Richard Clarke? He would seem more likely than Sandy Burger. He worked for Clinton and Bush, was "in the know", and has been coverying his tracks ever since.

Oh, yes. Only among traitorous Washington swine is it "historically insignificant" if we knew the identities of terrorists who murderered 3,000 Americans *before* the deed was done.

I doubt it's burglar...that clown got his documents confused with his McDonald's face wipe and wouldn't know the name Atta from Shinola.

...the MSM don't wanna know about it, most think nothing about AD, there was no uproar with a National Security Adviser stealing documents.....there will be no news on it.

So far, this just looks like The Pentagon took the initiative to destroy them.

9/11 video is on the history channel tonight. Check your channel times.

Of course, it will go by the book and be WRONG.

So when will we get 9/11 Commission Report, Part II???
