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.)
Have they pointed the finger at Sandy Berger yet?
My kids were talking at the time and I had missed who Curt said was ordered to destroy records
But yes, I did hear most of the interview
I'm not nit-picking, just don't want to miss it. Is the speech Sept. 8th (Wednesday) or Monday, Sept. 5th?
He'd better watch his step. Walk on well-lighted streets etc.
And I want tomorrow's newspaper today......but it ain't gonna happen.
Let the traitors swing from a tree next to the Capitol.
There are plenty of light poles in DC.
"My bet is the race is on to find the person Weldon is going to name and have him commit Arkancide"
And the murderous, stalinist, lying, propagandist, communist MSM will ignore it.
Remember when they put out the propaganda about Vincent Foster's death?
Thank god we have FR.....
Weldon is a great patriot for his work on this issue.
Look for the Democrats and the MSM to slime him at every turn.
If I was Weldon I'd stay away from airplanes, staircases and other spots where accidents tend to happens.
Ron Brown, Vince Foster and others can attest to why this is important when the Clinton admin might look bad.
Huge story!! The knives will be out for Weldon and his witnesses now, if they weren't already -- watch for a series of stories throughout the MSM seeking to discredit Weldon, Shaffer, Philpott, Smith, and all other potential witnesses. Remember that whoever destroyed the records under orders is already known to the people above who ordered the destruction, so watch for vicious leaks ala Ken Bacon trying to destroy Linda Tripp..... hope that some good documentary evidence exists somewhere, because no matter how many witnesses come forward it always helps to have something in "black and white"....
Chinagate was breathing down their necks.
Remember, the reason the Clintons told Gorelick to erect "the wall" in the first place was to stymie investigations into their criminal foreign campaign money schemes. There were probably other reasons as well.
Weldon reminds me of Joseph McCarthy for some reason.
It won't happen. Clinton will be protected.
Link? Link? I need a link.
Let's list the possible suspects who may have given the order...Bill Clinton, Jamie Gorelick, the former second-in-command at Justice, given Ms. Gorelick's work as the deputy attorney general under Janet Reno,... Janet Reno,...?
