Rep Weldon to give major House Floor speech on Able Danger momentarily; ON CSPAN NOW
CSPAN ^ | October 19, 2005

Posted on 10/19/2005 4:59:18 PM PDT by TomGuy

Rep. Kirt Weldon is on Michael Savage's radio program, and he is implying Rumsfeld is the one blocking further investigation into Able Danger.

Weldon is fuming; says he personally (in a committee hearing) asked Rumsfeld about the investigation being blocked. Rumsfeld replied that he would 'get back to Weldon with a response.' Weldon says he still has gotten nothing from Rumsfeld.

Weldon to give a speech in a few moments this evening on the floor of the House. It should be aired on CSPAN this evening.

Chamber appears to be relatively empty, but at least Rep. Weldon will get his speech/remarks into the public record.

This is just a thought, but if Weldon prompts the press to jump Rummy about this in a press conference, perhaps this is one way to get the word out... and the LSM will be the ones bringing it up.

Weldon stated that FBI Director Freeh said if he had the info uncovered by Able Danger re the Brooklyn Cell and Mohamed Atta, Sept. 11th could have been stopped.
