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.)
Dom Giordano just announced on his show (Saturday ~4:00PM) that UPI has requested an interview with him, Dom Giordano, about his interviews with Curt Weldon. I'm not sure why they don't just interview Weldon directly but as long as the story continues to keep its legs, that's what matters.
I like to think that this Free Republic thread with it's 28,000+ "views" is helping as well.
If Bubba and his WINO were still in top power, there would be a lot of heat on the mountain where the snowball rolled. Perhaps I am still living in the mindset when People Near the Clintons with Dangerous Information died violent deaths, and am therefore apprehensive for the talkers.
By definition, a wall is a BARRIER. And it was ANTI-useful to U.S. national security. While protective of the "liberties" of our foreign enemies who merely happened to already be on our shores.
I think you missed my point - which was:
Our complaint must be accurate. If what she did was shutdown a door in the wall, or change the affect of a door, or make a wall higher, then that's what we must point out.
Yes, it's a great thread and 28,000+ views is amazing!!!
Hope that as Congress gets back in town and the crisis of Katrina is brought under control that there can truly be serious hearings and MSM/public discussions..... can't hold out too much hope after seeing how well the MSM has operated as an arm of the Demagogic Party for so many years, but there are some things that they cannot ignore (even though they can 'spin').
I read a lot about the dying socialist "mainstream" newsrooms (aka the "MSM") on Free Republic threads. Are they still relevant? I mean, talk radio, the internet, and the 24-hour cable news stations pretty much blow the old media away don't they?
In any event, the old media no longer controls the selection, dissemination, and spin of the news. They can't spike stories like Able Danger and Juanita Brodderick anymore, and they certainly can't get away with their lies and fraud ("Rathergate") anymore. It's only a matter of time before Democrat organs like the New York Times are dead and gone, and the sooner the better.
