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.)
And since you also listed when you graduated from high school and college ( perhaps you might like to play the "DO YOU KNOW" game, in private, because I dated a few guys at Dartmouth, during part of your years there. ) I know that like me, you were NOT an adult during the McCarthy ear. You may have lived through it, as I did, but you believed ALL of the biased nonsense put out about him.
Yes, Ann Coulter is sometimes not only wrong, but terribly wrong about some things. But you have me mistaken with others here, I did NOT get my information about McCarthy from reading her book; I knew many decades before reading that tome, the truth/facts about Tailgunner Joe. I suggested that you read "TREASON", because you only know one side of the topic and that one, full of lies. I also told you to read books written by and about Whittaker Chambers! There are other books I could have told you to read, but I figured that two or three would suit.
And as I told you last night, HUAC was NOT a McCarthy endeavor. You're the one who brought up his supposed going after people in Hollywood...which is FACTUALLY INCORRECT!
Obviously, when it comes to FACTS, yes, in our debate, I am the only one who knows the truth. You proved, with every post you made, that you are uneducated in the matter. And quite a number of others, on this thread, took you to task as well. They too, know the truth/facts.
Please don't attempt to explain, to me, why people are on FR nor how to behave. You just joined; I've been here, lurker and member, from almost the very beginning of this site. We duke it out here and if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. I was civil and polite, in the extreme. If being told that you are wrong and ill informed about a topic is going to get an Air Force Vet ( so is my husband, BTW, and thank you for your service! ) all astir, perhaps you should just stick to threads about war/fighting/the military; topics you know well.
A belated welcome to FR. :-)
Usually there is a rough period of transition instead, which may or may not kill the company, as it transitions from the expression of one driven man's personality and talents, into a healthy corporation.
Unfortunately for America, we had a profoundly corrupt President at the helm when this turf war broke out. He used it to his advantage - to deeply politicize the control of intelligence and law enforcement both.
The cynical amongst us might even suspect that it was not an accident that ended Mary's life.
The word "removing" sounds better than "steal" or "theft." Harris, however, claimed that Berger "left the Archives building with copies of documents that were supposed to remain there..." That's a curious formulation. Did they just stick to his clothes? Were they post-it notes that he sat on? Berger says it was inadvertent or accidental. And Clinton said he didn't have sex with that woman.
However, some drafts of a sensitive after-action report on the Clinton administration's handling of Al Qaeda terror threats during the December 1999 millennium celebration are still missing, officials and lawyers said. Officials said the missing documents also identified America's terror vulnerabilities at airports to seaports.
Berger and his lawyer said Monday night he knowingly removed the handwritten notes by placing them in his jacket, pants and socks, and also inadvertently took copies of actual classified documents in a leather portfolio.
The missing documents involve two or three draft versions of the report as it was being refined by the Clinton administration. The Archives is believed to have copies of some of the missing documents.
Great list! Thanks for posting it.
Thank GOD that YOU are the keeper of those files! This is really connecting the dots.
If I'm not mistaken, security regulations require that notes on Top Secret material are to be taken by a security officer, double wrapped, and sent to the person who took the notes. They are not to be stuffed in your jacket, pants, and socks. Since Berger had been dealing with classified documents through much of his career, he must have known this.
That was before the delay of sentencing. But perhaps Sandy will get a light sentence ( DRAT! ), because he's been singing like a canary.
AND PTL FOR THAT!
"NO! That CAN'T happen! NOTHING will EVER be bigger than WATERGATE!" screams the Left as they crank up the intensity of their Universal Denial Field Generators]
I'll by the rope and the pop-corn!
God Bless Weldon, sure hope the Good Lord and some heavy armor is protecting him,
I have a feeling that Weldon has let it be known that if an!ything, even a sprained ankle happens to him in the next few months...they know where to look!!!
And I hope that goes for Lt. Schaeffer and the others that are "coming out"!
I worked in a private industry that was very interested in keeping tight track of its documents, since many were part or background to regulatory submissions and/or very valuable to the owner and the competition.
The rules were tight for the minions, but the big cheeses laughed at them. They thought they were above it all. And of course if there is a problem, their is always the underlings to blame.
I am sure that ego and that Clintonesque concept of careerism ad being well above the law is the keystone of this whole thing. Of course, right after them all being total slime balls.....
The records were destroyed in Sandy Berger's pants.
I wasn't in on your previous discussion and it sounds like I don't want to be.
But I do want to emphasize one of your points.
How could SENATOR McCarthy have any part of the HOUSE, HOUSE, HOUSE Unamerican activities committee.
Thank you, you just allowed me to vent on one of my very sore push buttons.
