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.)
Man, there had to be some very, very seriously damaging Clinton stuff in those files for Burger to go in and steal or destroy those documents before the 9/11 commission hearings. He must have been afraid the info would come out in the hearings.
What ever he stole, it was to save some pretty heavy butt!!! A person just doesn't walk into the National Archives and start trashing and ripping off documents!!
It was a less effective version of our own Alamo Girl.
Some dems? I assume all those aspiring to become President in 2008 are hoping the Xlintoons falter and Kerry is leading the pack.
1. My experience with staffers is that they sometimes try to "steer" the issue; this could have been the case when those involved in ABLE DANGER came forward to the 9/11 commission. This does not excuse them.
2. There are reports that LTC Schaffer was the subject of fradulent travel claims or phone bills - he may have been, but this would not be in the news if someone wanted him silenced. He was also a reveered case officer from what I have been told; and thoght out of the box.
3. ABLE DANGER used the same technology as CIFA (Counterintelligence Field Activity) and when congressional staffers came into that space, an analyst said "give me a name" for a demonstration. A staffer said "Chu" (to see what would happen) and the the analyst plugged that name in. The result of the name "Chu" was that the technology involved spewed out connections between someone named "Chu" and Pres Clinton. A copy of that report was requested; the analyst stupidly acquieced; the congressional staffer took it to the hill and it was released that Clinton had ties to the Chinese.
That technology was then shut down, to include ABLE DANGER and CIFA (formerly JCAG - which used the same technology). The Clinton administration was incensed and we lost all capability to track foreigners in our homeland.
Then you add Jamie Gorelick to the mix who wanted to preclude any technology or processes to allow those with that technology to provide info on people in America that wanted to destroy us from within to be provided by the U.S. military to law enforcement. Now, what do you all think is wrong with this picture??
Jamie Gorelich was sitting on the wrong side of the table in the Senate 9/11 hearings; and what was Sandy Berger REALLY doing n the archives??
Food for thought. . . . . .
Bet the pentagon has a great big bunch of folks who know their reputations will be shredded if it is discovered that they issued orders, under policy or orders from clinton adm lawyers, the ran counter to their oaths to defend America.
These are the people that failed to BLOW the WHISTLE and now, hopefully, they will pay with their reputations. We don't need cowards and/or betrayers, overseeing our national security OR our military.
Was it called "magic lantern" or some such thing?
"That is what freaked out the DOD lawyers, and they pulled the plug (but I don't necessarily think the Clinton White House was even informed -- if you were a Jamie Gorelick clone in the Pentagon in May 2000 you would know, without needing to be told, what your 'duty' was for the Clinton administration)."
I like your progression. To much was to incriminating concerning China whether it was connected to the election monies or in what they allowed the Chicoms to walk off with.
The terrorist stuff was collateral damage in that it was buried in the 2.4 tera bytes of files. They purged the whole works, close down the operation and that is that.
Case solved. And in so doing, this may really hamper Weldon's ability to open up a real investigation. Specter's gang will dilly dally around a bit, then perhaps make some half hearted statements to the effect, yes there where some problems with info that was not presented to the 9/11 commission in the right format etc., and they will say without the full body of raw data being available for analysis, the investigation is at a standstill. Case closed.
Who in the chain of command could order the documents destroyed?.....Cohen, Clinton,....a general in charge. The army doesn't take orders from the likes of Gorelick. Who else?
The cable channels have been awash with the Holloway girl, Crazy Cindy, and the hurricane.
The MSM? Nada, zilch, zero, bupkiss on Able Danger, except for articles in the N.Y. Post and a very few other papers.
Even talk radio, which not everyone listens to, hasn't hammered away at this story...yet.
And instead of spin, some of the naysayers are now giving this a bit of credence.
WATERGATE took YEARS to fully erupt and back then, just about EVERYONE read newspapers and watched the evening news; unlike today.
So, just how old are you? And yes, it DOES matter.
They should be dealt with as such under the appropriate code.
September 8th is THREE DAYS before before September 11th, so you've gotten your wish. :-)
I've book marked your link. The Captains Quarters site is really keeping tabs on this story. I'm glad they are !!!! Today, the bloggers are a necessary source for real news.
You're now thinking about HUAC, which was the purview of the HOUSE; not the SENATE and McCarthy was a SENATOR!
And the Hollywood Ten, were all stinking Commies, FYI.
You're a riot a regular riot, my friend.
