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.)
He IS a hero!
Is that your opinion, someone else's opinion, or are you making an educated guess?
Why was it not pursued? Why was it not asked about? Why was he not prosecuted? Or was he? Being busy with other things, I did not have time to follow. Thanks.
It was dismissed as anger over the recount, while perfectly in character for that to be the case, very likely there was more to it than that. Could be linked to this, could concern soemthing else.
BUMP this awesome graphic!
You need it for parts of this thread! Wanna share? :-)

You're right. Lots of infighting, back biting and glad-handing. They're a charming bunch.
the person who gave the order, and HE WILL NAME THEM in his speech
Gorelick or Reno
Burger? If so, he's to be sentenced sometime in September. For some reason, they delayed his first sentencing. They didn't say what he stoled, either. He'll probably get a slap on the hand, but I hope he squealed like a pig when they had him.
Yes, Curt mentioned that again tonight as well. That destruction of records occurred AFTER 9-11-01.
Thanks for that cap. But what were the specific charges?
McCarthy became an anti-Communist crusader in 1950. He won re-election two years later and assumed chairmanship of the Senate's Government Operations Committee. Through its investigative subcommittee, McCarthy looked for Communists in government. Other senators became dissatisfied with what they considered McCarthy's crude tactics and reckless accusations. In 1954, his colleagues censured him for disregarding Senate customs. Three years later, while still in office, McCarthy died of acute hepatitis at the age of 48.
The Senate has censured nine of its members since 1789, McCarthy being the fourth. Censure means a formal statement of disapproval. It carries no official penalty.>

ABLE DANGER is not going away!
I'm with you on this one. They were going after him with waaaaaay too much gusto.
I'm concerned they have more on him... he's got to be brave and just tell all. It's the only path to safety.
After Justice Department prosecutor Noel Hillman allowed Berger to plead guilty to a misdemeanor, he requested what some consider an extraordinarily light sentence given the gravity of the crime - a $10,000 fine, a three-year suspension of Berger's security clearance and no jail time.
