Curt Weldon reveals that Dietrich Snell(Gorelicks staffer)did NOT let Able Danger info to 9/11 comm
The Big Talker 1210- The Dom Giordano Show | 10/20/05 | Curt Weldon

Posted on 10/20/2005 5:55:10 PM PDT by abner

Was on my way home and was listening to Curt Weldon speak about the Able Danger information some more. I thought it very important that he released the name of the staffer that did not let the Able Danger information go to the 9/11 Commission members. The staffer that interviewed (I think) Scott Philpot about the Atta information was one Dietrich Snell. Apparently, he is one of Gorelick's staffers. Curt Weldon wants to know why he did NOT let the information get to the rest of the commission members.

Yes, he seems to have his hands all over the place. It is really nice to have Curt Weldon confirm that he was the staffer that dropped the ball....

The answer to that is obvious. Gorelick told him to suppress the information. I can't fathom why we're spending untold hours over the plame non affair when real crime is being committed right under our noses and no one outside bloggers and Freepers seems to care.

I'm betting he was told not to let any of it through, perhaps by Gorelick herself, so that when it came to light that the information hadn't been seen by the commission, all of the commission members could just shrug, say, "Who knew?" and walk away while Deitrich took the heat.

Well, that'll be fine until he protests, "But Jamie TOLD me not to..." THEN the jig 'll be up.

Got ROPE?

There's little question that Jamie Gorelick is the American most responsible for 9/11.

It's completely understandable that she would spend most of her time nowadays trying to cloud up this truth; and, it's almost understandable that the entire Democratic power structure would aid and abet her self-defense activities; but, it's beyond comprehension that Republicans far and wide would conspire to help her hide this truth as they have.

I guess that protection of the "political class" is more important to most of them than protecting America.

Hmmm...

Cover Up

Do you remember Dietrich Dieter Snell, the AUSA who was the co-prosecutor on the Bojinka case. Well, an FBI #302 memo from 3/7/96 on my website shows that he was a direct party to all of the Scarpa-Yousef intelligence on TWA #800. Yet in early April, 2004 when forensic investigators Angela Clemente and Dr. Stephen Dresch, presented these #302's to the 9/11 Commission, not a word of any of this showed up in their final report published in late July, 2004. The report nominated for The National Book Award.

Understand the significance of this. Here is evidence from the FBI's own files of al Qaeda involvement in the second biggest act of terror in U.S. history and the 9/11 Commission -- lead by investigators like Dieter Snell, flushes it all.

Along with Ms. Gorelick's mysterious phone call to Curt Weldon claiming she did nothing wrong, this is really heating up... I don't think Weldon believes she is innocent...

Dietrich Snell was in charge of the investigation into the first WTC attack, wasn't he?

And didn't the traitor also turn down information regarding Project Bojinka?

perhaps, but ther eis no way that she is the only one particpating in what weldon exposed as a bald-faced smear campaign of the military officer (forget his name) that first came forward. there are still active members within CIA/state/FBI/pentagon that are feeling pressured by this truth leaking out. they are subsequently working feversihly on how to spin, destroy evidence, and discredit the whistleblowers.

disgusting. where is the DEEP COLONIC that these departments full of career leftists need? why haven't the clintonites been spotted and ousted yet?!

Congressman Weldon's entire statement should be publicized throughout the nation by every means available. It is the most important story since 9/11, and the lives and careers of the service people involved should be honored, not ruined.

Terrorist told of plan to crash into CIA's HQ Two years ago, federal prosecutors turned down a cooperation offer from a terrorist who claimed he was part of a well-financed 1995 plot to crash an airplane into the CIA headquarters.

Abdul Hakim Murad said he got his pilot's license after training at several American flight schools, including one that is now under scrutiny in the terror investigation. Murad was convicted in 1996 for his role in a highly choreographed scheme to blow up 12 U.S.-bound jetliners flying out of Southeast Asia.

The Pakistani-born man said that in addition to the jetliner bomb plot, he and his co-conspirators were looking into using his flying skills to crash an aircraft into the CIA headquarters in Langley, Va.

"It was not something that we focused on. It was something that he said," recalled Dietrich Snell, the ex-prosecutor who convicted Murad. "We took seriously what he was telling us, but what we were focused on was the plot to blow up the 12 airliners."

U.S. Attorney Said No Deal Snell, who left office in 1998, did not recall Murad coming forward to offer information in return for leniency in sentencing. But court papers and two sources familiar with the situation confirm that Murad did try to cooperate with Manhattan U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White's office. He was turned down, the sources said.

Dietrich Snell was no "staffer" on the 9/11 Commission. He was Senior Counsel and a team leader.

The failure of the GOP to actually fight the Dems can be traced back to Jan. 01. The President is usually considered to be the leader of his (so far) party. The GOP's actions, out-Demming the Dems and protecting the Dems, has been very, very noticable since the aforementioned date.. period.

Dietrich Snell

ON CLINTON'S WATCH: Feds Nixed Deal for Plane Plot Tipoff

Published: 9/25/01
GREG B. SMITH

Terrorist told of plan to crash into CIA's HQ
Two years ago, federal prosecutors turned down a cooperation offer from a terrorist who claimed he was part of a well-financed 1995 plot to crash an airplane into the CIA headquarters.

Abdul Hakim Murad said he got his pilot's license after training at several American flight schools, including one that is now under scrutiny in the terror investigation. Murad was convicted in 1996 for his role in a highly choreographed scheme to blow up 12 U.S.-bound jetliners flying out of Southeast Asia.

The Pakistani-born man said that in addition to the jetliner bomb plot, he and his co-conspirators were looking into using his flying skills to crash an aircraft into the CIA headquarters in Langley, Va.

"It was not something that we focused on. It was something that he said," recalled Dietrich Snell, the ex-prosecutor who convicted Murad. "We took seriously what he was telling us, but what we were focused on was the plot to blow up the 12 airliners."

U.S. Attorney Said No Deal
Snell, who left office in 1998, did not recall Murad coming forward to offer information in return for leniency in sentencing. But court papers and two sources familiar with the situation confirm that Murad did try to cooperate with Manhattan U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White's office. He was turned down, the sources said.

It's not clear whether Murad's claims of a plan to fly a jet into the CIA buildings have any ties to the Sept. 11 attack on America. Murad gave investigators information that both resembles and bears no resemblance to the Sept. 11 attack.

His plan to blow up jetliners collapsed when bomb-making chemicals that he and his co-conspirator, Ramzi Ahmed Yousef, were mixing caught on fire inside a Manila apartment.

Murad was captured in January 1994 in Manila, where he told Philippine interrogators about a plot he called "bojinka," or "big sound." In that scheme, he, Yousef and at least 10 others planned to get off the planes at stops along the planes' routes. The bombs would be detonated by timers in sequence over the Pacific, and none of the terrorists would be killed.

Got Pilot Training Upstate
"The whole crux of bojinka was to have timed explosions and the operatives to be off the flights and escaping," Snell said. "That's a fundamental difference between what happened two weeks ago at the World Trade Center and bojinka."

But there are similarities. Snell recalled that Murad told investigators about the suicide mission to crash a plane into the CIA building. "I remember him saying he thought about maybe getting a small plane or somehow get access to a small plane and crash it into the CIA," Snell said, adding, "There was never any mention of hijacking." And Murad noted that he got his commercial pilot's license after training at several U.S. flight schools, including ones in upstate Schenectady and North Carolina.

Last week, FBI agents showed up at the same Schenectady flight school, asking questions about a student who trained there. And several of the suspected hijackers are believed to have studied at flight schools around the U.S.

Snell said he has no way to know whether Murad could have provided investigators with information that would be relevant to the probe of the Sept. 11 attack. "I think it's pretty unlikely, but I don't know," he said. "I'd be guessing like everyone else."

Snell was chief prosecuter of a terror suspect(I don't remember who) in the original WTC bombing. Just before the trial, the suspect said, "If you go easy on me I can give you information about..." what turned out to be 9/11 attacks.

Snell decided unilaterally that the suspect had no credible information and turned the deal down.

Personally, I do not believe it one iota. If we had a party that actually fought for what we have been fight for, for years, things would be happening. Even with the MSM burying and spinning every slimy thing the Dems (libs) have done, they could still be had by someone who has the ability to be heard, if those persons had the will to do so.

I quite agree with everything you say -- "W" is truly a liberal that understands tax policy (confused by most as knowledge that can only be had by conservatives) and a strong religious belief that translates into an anti-abortion stance. It's not all that surprising that he finds so much common ground with the leftists.
