Dec 24: Kean: CIA impeded 9/11 inquiry

Latest Kean statements:

WASHINGTON, Dec. 24 (UPI) -- The chairman of the Sept. 11 commission Monday criticized the CIA, accusing the U.S. spy agency of interfering with the panel's work.

Former New Jersey Gov. Thomas Kean told CNN the CIA should have turned over tapes of agents interrogating suspected terrorists with "enhanced" techniques, including waterboarding. The CIA earlier this month admitted destroying several tapes and the admission has prompted a series of investigations.

"I'm not a lawyer and I'm not sure if they broke the law or not," Kean said. "But what they did do is, I think, try to impede our investigation, because we asked for legitimate -- anything to do with those detainees, because they were the ones who knew most about the plot of 9/11 and that was our mandate. And we asked the CIA for everything having to do with those and we asked them not on one occasion but three and four and five and six occasions, and those tapes were not made available to us."

Kean said CIA arguments that the Sept. 11 commission didn't specifically request the tapes amounts to "parsing" its words.

"We asked for every single thing that they had," Kean stated. "And then my vice chairman, Lee Hamilton, looked the director of the CIA in the face, and said, 'Look, even if we haven't asked for something, if it's pertinent to our investigation, make it available to us.' And our staff asked again and again of their staff and the tapes were not given to us."

I posted...

This on my site yesterday because of Kean's statement that the CIA tried "to impede our investigation" by withholding the interrogation tapes. What did the White House do when they were withholding information? Do they think we forgot about the White House?

Kean: CIA impeded 9/11 inquiry

Obviously, this issue relates to the glaring deficiencies of the 911 commission report, its unwillingness to examination crucial evidence, evidence that was either ignored, omitted, or "overlooked"; and how this is circumstantial and concrete evidence for 911 being an inside job.

But another crucial point to examine is how the CIA has become the whipping boy for the neocons: how Tenant, the possible Israeli double agent, conveniently, fell on his sword, how Dick Cheney and his Israeli neocon staff, including Scooter Libby, ignored the CIA's intellgience analysis, cherry-picked its own sources and intelligence; and has worked to destroy the CIA's capabilities to defend this country; and, in fact, replace it with a "privatized" version of the CIA consistent with their political and geopolitical agenda; and now works to discredit the 16 intelligence agencies in light of the latest NIE, which basically states that Iran does not have the capabilities to develop nuclear weapons and had stopped trying as early as 2003.

Another Red Herring? Let us wait and see.

Once we accept and embrace as truth, as fact that 911 was an inside job perpetrated to initiate a global war against humanity; to use fear to impose a "shock and awe" economic regime of privatization and looting of public institutions for the few; a war to steal other sovereign nations' resources, a war to destroy Israel's muslim foes, and create a global police-state to protect them and their scheme we will have taken the fist crucial step in freeing ourselves from this tyranny.

Kean the comedian (I'm NOT laughing)

Kean and Hamilton are hilarious!

Who will they blame for the Commissions failure to report:

1) That they knew the NORAD officials, including Gen. Richard Myers, were lying to them during their testimony before the Commission;

2) That they excluded any mention of WTC 7 from their report. WTC 7 being the $850 million, 47-story steel-framed building that fell in 6.6 seconds at 5:20pm on 9/11/01 that was not hit by a plane and whose destruction still has not been explained by any government body;

3) on Norman Mineta's testimony, before their very Commission and live on CSPN, that clearly implicates V.P. Cheney in some treasonous behavior;

4) on FBI translator Sibel Edmonds 3 1/2 hours of closed door testimony which she has said connected very well known Americans to the 9/11 operation;

5) on William Rodriguez's 2 1/2 hours of closed door testimony in which he describes massive explosions going off in the sub-basement of the North Tower before the first plane hit;

6) on the numerous military war games and governmental exercises that were going on 9/11/01, many of which were designed to simulate the events that actually occurred, such as hijacked planes being flown into buildings;

7) on Mayor Giuliani's statement to Peter Jennings on live tv that he was warned that the Towers were about to collapse when no one else had any idea that this unprecedented event would occur;

8) that the U.S. Secret Service completely disregarded all standard operating procedures while "protecting" Pres. Bush in the Florida classroom;

9) that Mohammed Atta and many other of the alleged "hijackers" received training on U.S. military bases and were allowed to fly in and out of the U.S. many times leading up to 9/11/01, even though they were on so-called "terrorist watch lists";

10) that the FBI admits that they have "no hard evidence linking bin Laden to the events of 9/11";

11) that the FBI secured and cleared the three main crime scenes (NYC, Pentagon and Shanksville, PA) before doing any kind of proper forensic investigation;

12) the fact that they allowed themselves to be spoon fed information by Philip D. Zelikow, an obvious Bush Administration insider with a clear interest in covering up any administration foreknowledge or complicity and who was allowed to write the absurd and mythical final report.

The msm's complete and total failure to report on any of this is one very large, noisy BAD JOKE.

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

Great summary

To be precise, the commission did mention WTC 7, but not its "collapse", in its report.

Keep reaching to Keith Olbermann, Ron Paul, Naomi Wolf and other selected luminaries, folks.

The CIA is behaving silly:

The 911 commission asked for ANYTHING, REPEATEDLY.
The CIA says they kept the tapes until the commission was ready and since the commission not explicitly asked for the tapes they destroyed them.

1 How could the commission know the tapes existed? (The CIA didn't tell them, did they?)
2 Does the word ANYTHING not include videotapes?

BTW: Is there any evidence these tapes even existed?
This wholes issue could be only to fool us believing "Al-quaeda" was interrogated.
Al-Quaeda is nearly a myth according to a BBC documentary.

Amazing LIe

The CIA is saying that "they" didn't think the tapes would be helpful to the commission.

A week to go on their promise to deliver on WTC7 "this year." have I missed it or when will they come across?

How Can They?

There is only one explanation for the collapse of WTC7 and that is controlled demolition.
