WASHINGTON The federal commission that probed the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks was told twice about "Able Danger," a military intelligence unit that had identified Mohamed Atta and other hijackers a year before the attacks, a congressman close to the investigation said Wednesday.

Would love to ask Sandy "Burglar" that question...

I just shake my head and think WTF?

Salmon Pak didn't make it into the final report, although it was in a staff report in December 2003.
I don't think there was mention of Gore's Commission that declared cockpit doors should be secured to prevent hijacking and taking over the plane, but then the Clinton administration backed down when the airlines balked and Tom Daschle's wife (lobbyist) worked on him.
I don't believe there was any mention of this:

Less than two months before 9/11/01, the state-controlled Iraqi newspaper Al-Nasiriya carried a column headlined, American, an Obsession called Osama Bin Ladin. (July 21, 2001)
In the piece, Baath Party writer Naeem Abd Muhalhal predicted that bin Laden would attack the US with the seriousness of the Bedouin of the desert about the way he will try to bomb the Pentagon after he destroys the White House.
The same state-approved column also insisted that bin Laden will strike America on the arm that is already hurting, and that the US will curse the memory of Frank Sinatra every time he hears his songs an apparent reference to the Sinatra classic, New York, New York.

There are hundreds more of these that were not in the 9/11 Commission Report.
Kinda like the Warren Report with no mention of Lee Harvey Oswald.

It's enough to make you scream.
I will wait for the facts to come it. But it appears right now that the 911 commission engaged in deliberate whitewashing of the Gorelick/Clinton Wall.
This could be a blockbuster story if the blogs keep on it until the Old Media has to notice. Especially with the spin that covering up the Clinton/China connection was the impetus for the Wall in the first place.
Hillary might not come out of this one unscathed.
"What else didn't make it into the 911 report?"
What kind of attacks the "Second wave" attacks were to be. IN the report it said KSM said he was too busy to pursue those, but omitted what they were to be.
do you think we are at least getting some concessions for letting them slide?
She was from a family group and sounded as tho she was quite familiar with the Commission and the process.
She stated that the information came into the committee thru Gorelick and one other and it was they who decided what information was forwarded to other members.
And aside from freepers and a few congresscritters, most people don't care.
This, for one thing:
The Democrats wouldn't agree to include it.
Thanks for the recap links...ping for later reading. Need to brush up details again.
National Geographic is advertising thier 9.11 in-depth series or two-day event or something. I want to brush up on facts before I watch the spinsters versions.
Gorelick was in charge of disseminating information to the full committee and made sure, naturally, that Able Danger never saw the light of day.
BTW, did you see the FrontPage article from a year or so ago about why the Wall was created? To protect Clinton from investigations between different agencies regarding his fund raising from the Chinese and selling them technology.
It didn't hurt that agencies couldn't talk together either about TWA 800, OKC, the first WTC bombing, etc.
We all condemn our intelligence agencies, but the FBI was onto Atta. Able Danger was onto Atta.
They just couldn't DO anything. Because of Clinton.
.....this has NOTHING to do with the....'INS'....move on
