Skip to comments.BREAKING!!! - Weldon says records were ordered destroyed!! (Able Danger)
Posted on 08/29/2005 6:23:38 PM PDT by Lancey Howard
Congressman Curt Weldon (R - Pennsylvania) gave another exclusive interview to Dom Giordano this evening (Monday) and broke the news that he will be giving a speech on September 8th (next Monday) during which he will present yet another 'Able Danger' witness. This new witness will attest (and will swear under oath when called) that he was "ordered to destroy records" relating to the 'Able Danger' program.
This order to destroy the records occurred prior to 9-11-01. Weldon intimated that it happened during the Clinton Administration.
The witness, who Weldon did not name, says that he was ordered to destroy records and was threatened with jail if he failed to comply. Weldon said that he has the names of the people involved, including the person who gave the order, and HE WILL NAME THEM in his speech.
Congressman Weldon also said that his staff has met with Senator Arlen Specter's (R - Pennsylvania) staff regarding the upcoming Judiciary Committee hearings. Weldon wants to be sure that everybody is on the same page. Weldon also said that he will do whatever he has to do to make sure that ALL the facts come out and that the process "is not manipulated".
Curt Weldon is like a pit bull on a steak. He expressed disgust with the "incompetence" of the 9-11 Commission and said that the victims of the 9-11 terror attacks deserve answers. Weldon is determined to see that they get them.
Weldon did express confidence in Tim Roehmer and John Lehman and speculated that perhaps the poor job done by the Commission was the result of an incompetent staff. Weldon sounded amazed and disappointed that so much important information was either glossed over or swept under the rug by the Commission.
Weldon will give his September 8th speech either to the National Press Club or to a "9-11 families" group which has asked him to speak. He apparently hasn't nailed down the exact venue yet.
(For those unfamiliar with Dom Giordano, he is a very good conservative local talk show host here in the Philadelphia area, an area which includes Curt Weldon's district. Weldon comes on Dom's show often and, like this evening, sometimes breaks news.)
From your keyboard to God's ears...
Thanks for the ping .. I still want to know why Spector's in charge of the hearings .. I don't get it. Wouldn't this come under the Intelligence instead of Judiciary Committee???
Probably part of tons of documents destroyed to cover Clinton's treacherous tracks before the end of his administration.
Bush should detail a squad of Secret Service body guards to Weldon NOW.
With the 4-year anniversary of 9/11 quickly approaching, the timing for this story to gain steam is perfect. September 8th, he makes the speech...and on September 11th, the Sunday morning talk shows will all be talking about it. Meanwhile, the other news outlets will be running stories about the 4-year anniversary of the attack.
My dad just emailed that to me. What a crackup.
I am glad Weldon looks like he's got something to add. Can't wait.
Great line, Fudd!
He has a declassified version that did not have some photos including Atta
"On a cold day in Hell Specter might just do something that would hurt his Dem Comrades. Don't hold your breath"
Sadly agreeing with you :^(
Maybe Mercury is in retrograde until 9/7 or Mars is aligned with Jupiter starting on 9/8 or something like that. ;)
Watergate took a great amount of time at simmer - years - before it exploded. What nopardons said is right - yet again.
Explain to me just how revealing the whole story tomorrow (for those who would have a temper tantrum otherwise) will enhance our security or understanding significantly, as opposed to revealing this when Congress is in town next week when they will be able them to deal much more effectively with it. This is going to be a long series story, not a half-hour sitcom.
I'm hoping you just neglected to include your
I believe precisely what you have stated. It was a game to see just how much the population and media could be manipulated and what they found out was quite simple, "what a President does in his personal life is nobody's business, even if it does happen in a government office."
The only act I could imagine with Janet Reno would be aptly named, the Comrade Act.
The people comparing Weldon to McCarthy are not saying it in a positive way. They're using standard liberal tactics. But people like you and I truly know that McCarthy was a hero.
I am so glad to see someone else thinks this! I think the answer to your question is the Communists, Marxist, Socialists. Both Hillary and Bill were mentored by them. Of course this is all hidden by the MSM, but written about in many books about them, including some that are "friendly" to them.
