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.)
Yes, that's it! Many thanks for posting it. I haven't read it, but people have been posting quotes from him for as long as FR's been up and running. :-)
That is just great, did you make it?
I'm finishing up Treason right now. First few chapters give Joe McCarthy a very good send off. Seems like he got shafted for the original sin, as far as the media is concerened. That's loving America enough to attack Communists.
Naaaa, he looks too HAPPY for danger!!
I stole it from opineapple
There other great ones here at this post.
(must have 3 guesses posted before i decode it for you)
Let's see...is it "Rolling on the floor laughing my @$$ off p**ing in my pants with tears in my eyes"?
Thanks april, I'll go look at the others too. This one is funny!
Read "TREASON", by Ann Coulter. All you know about McCarthy has come from biased, anti-McCarthy folks and you've bought the lies as whole cloth.
I appreciate your thoughts on this, and I agree that in Washington politics NOTHING happens by coincidence. But trust me, the architect has NOT been removed. Joe Wislon and his wife have been exposed as lying scum and are already gathering dust in the bargain bin, along with their book. Already forgotten.
And all but the looniest of the lefties just look downward and shake their heads in embarrassment at Cindy Sheehan. In a week or so, the hurricane will be old news and Congress goes back in session. And the scandal will unfold in earnest.
The Clinton "legacy"? Bwaaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahahahahahahahahaha His "legacy" will be one he does NOT want, but which he earned. :-)
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.
Nopardons, I normally don't get involved in these brouhahas, but I just gotta say I saw you sneaking up on this one several posts back; you should be ashamed of yourself, taking advantage on the unread or uneducated. Or the memory impaired.
Remind me not to play chess with you.
Or Go. (Geesh!)
I believe that because of the substantial involvement of the FBI, it falls under Judiciary.
Good night and good riddance to the Clinton years.
I am pretty sure that Weldon is the safest man in Washington at this point. Can you imagine if an "accident" befell him NOW?? The publicity on the 'Able Danger' scandal would intensify a hundred-fold. No. What those endangered by the scandal will try to do is discredit and smear Weldon and everybody he associates with. The Clinton/Lenzner dirt machine is no doubt working overtime right now.
Thanks on post 555. INTEL DUMP......statements made by LCT Schaffer. I also found Jon Holdaway, follow up statements rather interesting. His points about DoD justice department in general may end up proving not to Weldons likeing if I read it correctly, in essence indicating Jamie's wall did not directly affect the DoD decision to halt any interface between AD/FBI, but in essense it was the DoD's choice within their existing policies, etc.. This could prove a sticky point in what it appears Weldon is trying to accomplish. But perhaps I misread the Holdaway's statements. As usual I book mark them so I can return as required.
Gotta get some shut eye been a looooong day. Nighty night.
Start of the new NFL season - Oakland at New England, in prime time!!!!!!!
