Weldon to Get His Chance to Prove 9/11 Accusations


In a recent interview on Lou Dobbs Tonight, Representative Curt Weldon made the following statement:

"We've received assurances that the hearings will go forward.

But the other thing that we have to look at, Lou, and you have had another guest on your show recently, why did the 9/11 Commission pick 1996 and not go back beyond that? There is some very interesting material that needs to be tied in. The '93 attack on the Trade Center. The blind Sheik's trial. None of that was looked at by the 9/11 Commission, and the American people need to ask the question why.

We will be asking that question during the Able Danger hearings."

It will be interesting to see what information Rep. Weldon is referring to. Given the fact that there are many similarities between the '93 bombing and 9/11, one can only hope he is referring to the truth in its entirety.

In October 1993, in an article entitled, "Tapes Depict Proposal to Thwart Bomb Used in Trade Center Blast" the New York Times reported that, "Law-enforcement officials were told that terrorists were building a bomb that was eventually used to blow up the World Trade Center, and they planned to thwart the plotters by secretly substituting harmless powder for the explosives, an informer said after the blast."

"The informer was to have helped the plotters build the bomb and supply the fake powder, but the plan was called off by an FBI supervisor who had other ideas about how the informer, Emad Salem, should be used, the informer said."

As you can see, a lot was known about the bombing, and yet, it still took place. As a matter of fact, the FBI apparently had the opportunity to thwart the bombing, and they decided against it.

In relationship to Able Danger, and 9/11, if the accounts of Lt. Colonel Anthony Shaffer are accurate, not only could the government have stopped 9/11, but much like the '93 bombing, they made a conscious decision not to. By not allowing the information Able Danger obtained to be shared with authorities, the Pentagon lawyers may have secured Mohammad Atta's, and three of the other alleged hijackers' roles in 9/11.

Hopefully, if the information Rep. Weldon has discredits the 9/11 Commission's findings, the American people will finally start to wake up to the fact that 9/11 has never been thoroughly investigated, and begin to demand answers.
