Skip to comments.Curt Weldon: Gorelick Aide Blocked Able Danger Testimony
Posted on 10/21/2005 9:29:47 PM PDT by wagglebee
An aide to former Clinton Justice Department official Jamie Gorelick blocked the 9/11 Commission from hearing bombshell testimony about the findings of the elite Able Danger military intelligence team, Rep. Curt Weldon said late Friday.
"The person who debriefed [Able Danger analyst] Scott Philpot was, in fact, the lead staffer for Jamie Gorelick," Weldon told the Fox News Channel's "Hannity & Colmes." "His name was Dieter Snell."
Weldon contended: "It was Dieter Snell who did not brief the 9/11 Commission. The 9/11 Commissioners were never briefed on Able Danger."
Gorelick was the lead Democrat on the 9/11 Commission.
Weldon said Able Danger team members have been "gagged" by the Pentagon and by Defense Intelligence Agency leaders who stand to be embarrassed by their revelations.
"The Defense Intelligence Agency has people who were held over from the previous administration," he told Fox News. "They were there when [Able Danger] brought forward this information."
The Pennsylvania Republican said that besides identifying Atta and three other 9/11 hijackers as terrorist threats, Able Danger had warned of the impending attack on the U.S.S. Cole.
"Two weeks before the attack on the U.S.S. Cole," he told "Hannity & Colmes, "they sensed that something was about to happen in Yemen. Two days before the attack on the Cole - and the arrival of the Cole in harbor - they warned that the ship should not enter the harbor."
"This information needs to be brought to the public," Weldon said. "We lost 3,000 people here. This cannot be covered up. This is 3,000 times worse than Watergate."
I would be a dollar to a doughnut hole that Sandy Berger copped documents that had comments about Able-Danger written in the sidebars.
The press was quick to say that copies of the documents he stole were still within the National Archives. What they did NOT say, was that the originals, with hand-scribed commentary were stolen and never to be seen again.
Probably Bill Clinton saying "We can't respond to this Able-Danger stuff, it violates the separation of FBI and CIA clause written by our staff..."
She needs to be investigated now, she is quite possibly responsible for more American deaths than any other single person in history.
Gorelick was only doing what Rummy wanted?
What an absolute shock. Where's the smelling salts?
There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the documents Sandy the Burglar stole were directly related to Able Danger.
Well .. now we know why Gorelick interrupted her vacation in the summer to make all those calls to say she did nothing wrong
Oh ... and now I wonder if this has any connection with Sandy Pants Bergular also
Gore-lick, now there is a mental picture that will give you a brain cramp.
I can't wait to see the latest copy of the Revised and Amended 9/11 Commission Report - fact-corrected 23rd edition.
It's due to be released in 2020.
Sandy Berger demonstrated the same point that Bill and Hillary Clinton had made many times before... if there are no documents to testify to the facts, then the facts do not exist.
1) Vince Foster commits suicide, his office is emptied by Clinton staff, no documents on Whitewater are found.
2) Ron Brown dies in a plane accident, his briefcase containing evidence of "commerce trips for donations" disappears, and no evidence of corruption is found.
3) FBI files disappear, show up in Hillary's personal residence, and no evidence that they were copied exists.
4) Rose Law Firm records disappear. Hillary had nothing to do with Whitewater and the transactions managed by RLF.
Without documentary evidence, it is simply hearsay.
