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.)
I tried and tried to let him or others supply the factual history of the matter; nobody stepped up to the plate, so what was I supposed to do...let it all just hang there in the wind? Not my style. LOL
I'll remind you NOT to "play" any games with me; however, I think that you know better to do so.
Outrageous that the "Defense & Intellignece" bureaucracy cares more about poitical PR than National Security!
Nothing was breathing down their necks at the time.
Wondering the same.
Maybe they saw the handwriting on the wall. They had a "mountain" to hide with all that went on during that (Clinton) administration.
You aren't Weldon ( he has far more good sense than you !) and buy your wife a lovely B Day present ASAP! :-)
Interesting. Makes on think "hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..."
That was my mistake. Weldon only said that he was planning a speech for September 8th and I went and looked at my August calendar. D'oh! Sorry about that. September 8th falls on a Thursday.
You got it! D'oh! Sorry about that - - the mistake was mine, not Weldon's. Curt is planning his speech for Thursday, September 8th.
Yes, it certainly does! And they also enjoyed sending the IRS on people and having them clapped in jail, for NO reason; but they no longer have such power.
It is interesting that Gorelick's position on the 9/11 Commission may have been to alert the Clintons that some compromising information was being uncovered by the Commission and that Sandy Burger had to be sent into the National Archives to grab the damaging information. This is not the first time that Gorelick has been used to protect the Clintons from scrutiny. It is known that the Wall was originally erected between the CIA and the FBI to protect the Clintons from damaging information about the campaign cash from the Chinese government in exchange for nuclear secrets.
We hope to God that the Clintons did not enable the Chinese to develop the technology for the miniaturization of a nuclear device in exchange for (sex?) and campaign cash.
ATTENTION SANDY BURGER:
Was that a pickle in your pants or were just glad to see me?
I agree. NOW is the time for the Republicans to go for the throat and finish the scumbags off. The futures of traditional America and the traditional American family unit are at stake. The Democrat goal of transforming traditional American society into a Euro-style secular socialist society MUST NEVER AGAIN BE ADVANCED.
Tonight C-SPAN or C-SPAN II they were replaying part of the 9/11 dog & pony shows from just last month but after the revelations of the last few weeks the hearing plays like a kinoscope of an old boxing match or college football game. Can C-SPAN be pushing the 9/11 Committees face in it?
