Betsy Metz Presents Able Danger - W/Speaker Sander Hicks - 12/18/2008

Betsy is continuing to show movies at the Anthony Wayne Movie Theater. Tonight's show was "Able Danger" which is loosely based on author, and 9/11 Truth activist, Sander Hicks.


Is a national treasure.

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?

You are funny. You are also

You are funny.

You are also too kind.

But thanks.

It's better than being yelled at or having dirt thrown all over my car like it was Thursday night. : )

And the prior night, a police officer came up to me when I was taking a photo of the Able Danger poster in the outdoor's postercase. Do I look like a terrorist, and even if I did is that very American (it's not nice to profile) or even a pragmatic (reasonable) security issue?

Crazy, upside down world the USA has become.

Someone threw....

Dirt on the Porsche?

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?

I meant it.

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?

It is. Please see the

It is.

Please see the BlogAd to the left here on 911 Blogger.

I can't!

I can't seem to find a link to the video he's talking about. Anyone else have it? I searched Youtube and INN world report.

Here -- good luck

Here is a link to a Google video version of the interview, but oddly, there is no audio (at least when I play it) It took me a minute to find it.

Here is a link to the same video I found on a search using

I'm noticing major problems with searches on both Google and Youtube lately. On more than one occasion, I've typed the PRECISE, EXACT title of a particular video and nothing comes up in my search. Only after using some creative search words am I able to find stuff. And sometimes not at all. And now this one with no audio?

Now more than ever it's important to download important info (videos, etc) and not only archive them, but saturate the internet with multiple postings of these.

Post back here and let us know if it plays for you

Here is the Google video

There is no audio...

Which is why I've never seen it.

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?

Thank you Peacenik....

I don't get any audio either. Very strange. And no place to comment to complain abut the lack of audio. Convenient huh!?

"Now more than ever it's important to download important info (videos, etc) and not only archive them, but saturate the internet with multiple postings of these."
You're absolutely right. They'll erase every thread of evidence if they can. Already most is gone!
Keep up the great work!

I am also having internet

I am also having internet issues. Have been unable to update the movie BlogAd to the left here on 911 Blogger for the last 24 hours. Very odd.

I let Sander know...


Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?

Find Sander

Someone needs to let Sander know since he would be a likely source to the original. I'm unable to download from, or I'd start re-posting it myself. And yeah, there's no easy way to complain to Google -- right -- how convenient.


Is the transcript. I was able to find it on net archive.

Comments by Richard Ben-Veniste, member of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks, March 31, 3001

“In the intervening time since the September 11 attacks, we have learned a great deal about what happened on that day and the events leading up to it. In particular, we are grateful for the work of the Joint Inquiry conducted by the Senate and House Intelligence Committees. Congress has specifically instructed us to build upon the good work of the Joint Inquiry as we proceed with our investigation and develop recommendations for Congress and the President.

Yet the Joint Inquiry’s full report had only just last week been made available to the members of this Commission who have the full security clearances. As of last week, most of the Commissioners and most of the staff had not yet received security clearances. I believe the scheduling of this hearing has had a salutary effect on speeding up the clearance process. And I am gratified that the White House has now promised the funds necessary to carry out our work. It is important that President Bush has publicly supported this Commission and its goals. The full cooperation of the relevant departments and agencies of the executive branch is essential to the Commission’s ability to carry out its responsibilities. And the result of such cooperation will be a measure of our success. “

INN Interview

Sander Hicks:
Here in the studio today we have Mr. Richard Ben-Veniste. He served with distinction at the Watergate Special Prosecutor’s Office from 1973 to 1975. He has also served as a federal prosecutor in NewYork. He was the boss of young Rudolph Giuliana. And today he is a major Washington attorney with Mayer, Brown, Rowe and Maw in D.C. Welcome Mr. Ben-Veniste.

Richard Ben-Veniste: Thank you for inviting me.

SH: Well, it’s really quite an honor to have an actual member of the National Commission here on INN Report. We’ve been following with interest the development of the National Commission. My first question that I wanted to talk to you about how you view what seems to be a somewhat antagonistic relationship between the White House and people who question 9/11. I’m speaking specifically about the controversy about funding, you mentioned in your introductory remarks about the lack of security clearances for the Commission and let’s go back a couple of months ago. You remember that there was some talk in the media about how Tom Daschle had been called by Bush and Cheney and somewhat threatened on the phone about not letting the Joint Inquiry in Congress look in too closely at 9/11. What are your thoughts?

RB: Well, our statute provides us with authority to conduct a very broad inquiry basically to provide an investigation of 9/11 that’s thorough, complete and will withstand the scrutiny of history. And I feel confident that we have the kind of people on our Commission and our staff who are capable of doing that. Now, I have no comment on what you mentioned earlier about the controversy. It’s clear that the Joint Inquiry which did an astonishingly good job in the time they had, was not afforded all the information they sought. Our mandate expects that we will build on the Joint Inquiry’s investigation and we will not be re-inventing the wheel. But we go to places which the Joint Inquiry was not permitted to explore. So that’s one of the basic tenets of what we are doing.

SH: What are those areas that the Joint Inquiry that Congress was not allowed to explore?

RB: They made certain requests for interviews of members of the White House and the National Security Council and they didn’t get all the information that they sought.

SH: I don’t know if you are able to comment but there has been a lot of talk about – not in mainstream media but in independent media – about the relationship between the Bush family and the Saudis. Let’s say George Herbert Walker Bush’s membership on the Board of Directors of the Carlyle Group. Or the fact that in 1978 young W. Bush received money through James Bath, who it turned out was working for the Saudis. His name was Salem bin Laden. Are you familiar with this information and.....

RB: I don’t have any comment on that.

SH: America has such a bad history with these kinds of special investigations. We have these major historical events that are then investigated. Former Governor Kean yesterday made reference to two precedents: the Warren Commission Report on the assassination of JFK and the Roberts Commission Report on the Pearl Harbor attack. And he admitted that the results of both those Commissions were inadequate and did not satisfy the majority of the people. So, if you prefer not to talk about specifics of the Bush-Bin Laden connection, then let’s talk about the specifics of a broader historical inquiry. How can the National Commission on 9/11 be different from the Warren Report?

RB: I think the better analogy is the Roberts Commission which was created, almost immediately, after the attack at Pearl Harbor. And the short comings of that Commission’s report were documented. There were several subsequent inquiries. And it turned out that the Roberts Commission did not fully utilize the information available and that it came to conclusions which were I think quite short sighted and, indeed, in some cases, scapegoated individuals.

SH: We saw a panel come before the Commission of 5 people who had first-hand injury experience in 9/11. And they told stories that were traumatic and emotional. But they emphasized that they had no anger, were not going to point fingers. But then we had victims’ family members on the next panel. And these people were, I felt, like had a whole different level of knowledge and inquiry and were asking some very hard questions about the lack of aviation response from the military on 9/11. And, you know, there are people out there who are asking hard questions. And I thought that was somewhat represented on Monday by the lunchtime press conference with 9/11 Citizens Watch. I wanted to ask you if you had reviewed any of the materials on them or have you seen any ...

RB: I was eating lunch at lunchtime. And we had, I think, twenty minutes. The family members represent a broad spectrum of personal reaction to the horrific losses that they have suffered. And they have been a constant source to us, not only of motivation, but they have provided very useful insights and information. And we are honored to work with them and to keep a very close relationship with the family members.

SH: What are some of the questions that the family members are asking that you feel are valid?

RB: They are asking a number of questions about how it happened, that things which we had in place...

SH: Try to like, off the top of your head, what were some emotional, knowledgable, rational reactions that you had - like “wow, that’s a good question. That really bugs me, too.”

RB: Well, the forms that were filled out by the hijackers to get into this country, that were obviously inadequate. Those are actually State Department forms for visas which provided inadequate information. The real issues that I think were highlighted in the hearings by family members who had many questions which we will address. Hopefully, we will provide answers, at least by statements from those who were responsible at the time, for why our country could not connect the dots, did not operate as our system is designed to operation. And that will inform the suggestions that we make for making our system better.

SH: Let’s go back for a second and talk about what you just said about the INS forms of the terrorist hijackers. How there just seems to be a disconnect. How could these people – it was pointed out that a couple of these people were on the CIA’s list of terrorists, they had attended the terrorism conference and yet they were allowed to be in country. There was a gentleman you may know of, named Daniel Hopsicker? He’s a former producer of NBC and he wrote a book called, “Barry and the Boys.” You are mentioned in it. It’s about a former client of yours who is now deceased, Mr. Barry Seal. Are you familiar with this book?

RB: No, I haven’t read the book but I did represent Barry Seal, who was convicted. He thereafter, on his own, became a government informant. He worked against the Sandinistas and that certainly is not the subject of this....

SH: That’s not the subject of ....

RB: We have quite a bit to do here in our Commission without going into all my private practice. I certainly wouldn’t want this to be an infomercial for Richard Ben-Veniste as a private attorney.

SH: Not at all. But the question was, Daniel Hopsicker is

RB: So, if you wouldn’t mind staying on our subject...

SH: Not at all.

RB: I’d appreciate it.

SH: He did this interesting research on the web, that you can get, about the flight school in Florida, about the – and the connections between CIA and Rudi Dekker, the Dutch National, who ran that flight school. I’m wondering if the Commission plans to investigate that?

RB: I think you are going right for the capillary, if I may say so.

SH: You mean the jugular?

RB: No, I mean the capillary.

SH: You mean the find detail?

RB: I mean the things that are, the detail that is certainly not central to us getting started here. So, we are in the inception stages. We are getting started. Our inquiry is on its way.

SH: These are part of the questions which the families are asking, citizens watch

RB: I don’t think anybody asked any questions about Mr. Hopsicker, whoever he may be.

SH: No the question is really about Rudi Dekker and about – he’s a Dutch National. Mohamed Atta was at his flight school doing cocaine with his girl friend. If Mohamed Atta is technically a fundamentalist Muslim, what is he doing cocaine and going to strip bars with Rudi Dekkers’ girlfriend?

RB: You know, that’s a heck of a question.

SH: (Laughter) It sure is. Right. Well then we agree on that. Maybe then we’ll just sort of wrap it up at this point if you’d rather. I know you have a plane to catch.

RB: Right.

SH: And I appreciate you being on the program.

RB: Sure thing..

SH: And thank you very much.

RB: You’re welcome.

SH: Thank you, INN Report reporting.

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?
