The War on Weldon Gets Scarier, Part II

WorldNetDaily.com August 21, 2007
This the second in a four part series detailing how and why a collaboration of Democratic activists conspired to unseat Pennsylvania congressman, Curt Weldon, in the November 2006 elections. Read Part 1.
I met Congressman Curt Weldon for the first (and only) time in July 2006. He graciously consented to assist me in some research I was doing. I, in turn, was able to help connect some of the dots in the chain of forces aligned against him.
All dots led to former national security adviser and current chairman of the global strategy firm, Stonebridge Resources, Sandy Berger. As Weldon then knew, Berger would not go down easily.
In fact, Berger was in the process of pulling off a brazen, political drive-by on Weldon, the one legislator who most seriously threatened the Clinton legacy and his own reputation.
Berger began his spring offensive in March 2006 with a fundraiser for Weldons opponent in the 2006 House race, Joe Sestak, a former vice admiral forced into retirement for what the U.S. Navy charitably called poor command climate.
Before being recruited to run for Congress by the Clinton shadow government, Sestak had expressed no political ambitions and had not lived in Weldons district for 30 years.
Although hosted by Berger, the fundraiser was held at the law offices of Harold Ickes, a veteran Clinton fixer, and Janice Enright, the treasurer of Hillary Clintons 2006 Senate campaign.
Kicking in to support Sestak was a whos who of Clinton national security exiles. These included former secretary of state Madeleine Albright, Richard Against All Enemies Clarke, former national security adviser Anthony Lake, former White House chief of staff, John Podesta, and Hillary Clinton herself.

Curt Weldon should be hailed a hero; the Clintons and their minions should be in jail and why hasn’t the Bush administration done something about this atleast behind the scenes?
Y’all are not remembering Able Danger. Weldon wanted it opened.
When it was quashed a couple years ago, we gnashed our teeth. Maybe some magnificent bastard is ready to re-animate it. Remember, history will get it right and we'll be dead.
(Cannot remember the Able Danger ping list to save my life.)
Weldon clouded his assertions by all of a sudden saying he wasn’t sure Atta was on the list.
Hadley never did say anything (that I recall) one way or the other...
MSM essentially tin-foiled Weldon and congress bought into it.
Rove thinks in 50-year timeframes. I so hope this comes back: talk about an overdue house-cleaning in State, CIA, congress, DC bureaucracy, all that. We archived Able Danger here to the teeth.

If Weldon goes down for influence peddling for his daughter, Harry Reid should be right there with Curt. None of that is going to happen. The Dems just want Weldon neutralized. Behind the scenes, the Clintonistas in the DOJ will keep Weldon worrying about his own personal problems. Able Danger - Islamoterrorism - Chinese infiltration of the American economy and homeland thanks to Clinton et.al. selling us out (and Bush not reversing any of this). It’s enough to make a Head SPIN.
It's always made me wonder what his reason was.
