MEMBERS OF ABLE DANGER intel team claim they were blocked from telling FBI about two 9/11 terrorists, 2 yrs. before attacks....
And, exactly who made the decision to leave this critical information out of the 9/11 Commission Report? It has been documented that they were given this information. Was it Democrat Congressman Jay Rockefeller [Minority Chair] and the Clinton administration bigwig-supporters that were on the Commission, including Clinton DOJ Deputy Atty. General Jamie Gorelick, Democrat former Senator Bob Kerrey, Clinton-supporting and defending Democrat Attorney Richard ben Veniste?
And was the document destruction referred to by Able Danger intel agents among the documents Clinton's former National Security Advisor Sandy "Stickyfingers" Berger stole from the National Archives and destroyed? What documents were destroyed, when were they destroyed, by whom were they destroyed, and on whose orders were they destroyed?
An Independent Counsel should be appointed to thoroughly investigate this deliberate decision to block intel that could have prevented the deaths of almost 3,000 people on 9/11. It should also be thoroughly investigated by Congress.
The people responsible for this deliberate quashing of information about an Islamic terrorist cell in America that ultimately caused the vast destruction and deaths on 9/11 must be found out, exposed and brought to justice---no matter how high up in the Clinton administration it goes.
Kudos for Rep. Curt Weldon for discovering this information and making it public. The public has a right to this information. A Deputy Atty. General does not make decisions like this---setting up walls to prevent communication between intel agencies and law enforcement---in a vacuum and of her own volition. And, if she---Jamie Gorelick---signed the prohibiting order, it was sheer stupidity to allow her to serve on the 9/11 Commission to protect herself, Janet Reno and higher-ups in the Clinton administration.

"Rep. Weldon Eyeing Clinton White House in 9/11 Breakdown"
"Rep. Curt Weldon, R-Penn., is vowing to find out who in the Clinton administration ordered a group of military intelligence officers not to tell the FBI about critical information on two 9/11 hijackers that was obtained two years before they destroyed the World Trade Center.
"What bothers me is two things," Weldon told WABC Radio's Mark Levin late Wednesday. "I'm told that that they couldn't share this information with the FBI? How far up the chain [of command] did it go? Did it go to the White House? And if so, who ordered it?"
Asked about reports that restrictions on intelligence sharing implemented by Clinton Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick played a role in the disastrous intelligence breakdown, Weldon said: "I think that needs to be investigated."
"There was no reason not to share this information with the FBI.... except that the firewalls that existed back then were so severe that they wouldn't let these agencies talk to one another."
.... Weldon detailed the information obtained by an elite Defense Intelligence group named Able Danger, which had identified lead 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta and his partner, Marwan al-Shehhi as al Qaida terrorists who were operating inside the U.S.
On Sept. 11, 2001, Atta hijacked American Airlines Flight 11 and flew it into World Trade Center Tower One, while al-Shehhi commandeered United Airlines flight 175 and destroyed Tower Two. The twin attacks killed over 2,700 Americans.
Rep. Weldon said that the Able Danger team urged that the FBI be briefed on their intelligence on Atta and al-Shehhi on three separate occasions - only to be turned down.
"I do know that one of the military intelligence officers I'm talking to had led me to believe that some of his documents have been destroyed" ....adding he has yet to confirm the allegation. The Pennsylvania Republican told Levin that three current members of the Able Danger team have already come forward to talk to him, and eleven more are willing to testify.
