Former 9/11 Commission Vice Chairman Makes Bizarre Comments about Intelligence Failures before Attacks

Former 9/11 Commission Vice Chairman Lee Hamilton recently made some bizarre comments about the Zacarias Moussaoui case in an interview for Vanity Fair. The interview was used for a wide-ranging and very interesting oral history of the Bush White House. Hamilton’s comments appear to show complete ignorance of a key aspect of the investigation of which he was vice chair.

Moussaoui was arrested on an immigration violation due to suspicious he was planning to hijack an aircraft by the Minneapolis FBI on 16 August 2001, nearly four weeks before 9/11. His personal effects contained evidence linking him to eleven of the nineteen alleged hijackers and the local FBI suspected that he was part of a wider plot. It correctly assumed a search of the effects would uncover his links to the other conspirators. However, due to obstruction by FBI headquarters, no warrant was ever granted to search Moussaoui’s belongings. Middle managers at headquarters also failed to properly inform their superiors of the case.

Here are Hamilton’s comments on the Moussaoui case:

"We knew, for example—when I say we, I mean the F.B.I. in Minneapolis knew—that those guys in flight-training school were more interested in flying the airplane than they were in taking off and landing. They knew that. Who didn’t know it? The director of the F.B.I. didn’t know it. The director of the C.I.A. did know it. His response was that it was none of his business. Technically correct, because his business is foreign intelligence."


Anyone familiar with the Moussaoui case can see that this is pretty much garbage from start to finish. Let’s go through it one point at a time.

Always hard to tell

with old men like Hamilton or Rumsfeld whether their verbal miscues are deliberate or just a result of age and senility. But Hamilton certainly doesn't help matters by spreading nonsense like this.

CIA interrogators used waterboarding at least 266 times on two top al Qaeda suspects, according to a Bush-era memo released by the Obama administration. The controversial technique that simulates drowning -- and which President Obama calls torture -- was used on Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, pictured above, 183 times in March 2003. full story

To quote the blog post above : ".....this is pretty much garbage from start to finish."

Tough to cover lies.

Jesse Ventura told a woman at the debating table when asked why he had no notes:
“You don't need to memorize things when you are telling the truth" Lee Hamilton is probably not incompetent and has to tip toe around on everything he says. I think he just makes mistakes because he is telling so many lies.

I saw Lee Hamilton on March 12th in Denton, Texas - UNT

Lee Hamilton came to UNT in March for a forum on "Immigration Policy". I was there handing out 9/11 Truth DVDs and flyers to all the guests at the tables waiting for the forum of speakers to begin on stage. ( )
Make no mistake...Lee Hamilton has a sharp mind and a silver tongue, although he may "pretend slow" at times. He gave some 5 and 10 minute talks towards his agenda (and an elite agenda) on immigration policy...and these were sharp, very alert spoken words. I was amazed at how alert he really was. [He is still pushing an agenda by those behind the curtain --> ...and I am sure the pay is very, very, good.]
Another 9/11 Truther confronted Lee Hamilton about Building 7. Lee responded slowly and dumbly and feigned that he did not know what the Truther was talking about. However, PBS showhost Dennis McCuistion (who had been the moderator of the forum) later told the Truther that "he had a conversation with Lee earlier today at lunch about WTC7!!!" McCuiston said that he has questions about 911, particularly WTC 7. He asked the Truther, " Wasn't there a separate investigation for WTC 7 that just came out a few weeks ago?"...with more conversation about Building 7.
So, anyway, I think Lee Hamilton feigns slowness, but he is a very adroit "Official Agenda Guy".
