the 9/11 commission....

Recommended Posts



WASHINGTON (AP) -- Members of the commission that uncovered the government's failures to share intelligence among agencies before the September 11, 2001, attacks want to know whether U.S. defense intelligence officials knew for more than a year that four of the hijackers were part of an al Qaeda cell but failed to tell law enforcement.


Lee Hamilton, co-chairman of the now-disbanded commission, said Tuesday that members of the September 11 commission could issue a statement by the end of the week after reviewing claims that defense intelligence officials had identified ringleader Mohammed Atta and three other hijackers.


"The 9/11 commission did not learn of any U.S. government knowledge prior to 9/11 of surveillance of Mohammed Atta or of his cell," said Hamilton, a former Democratic congressman from Indiana. "Had we learned of it obviously it would've been a major focus of our investigation."


The commission's report on the terrorist attacks, released last year, traced government mistakes that allowed the hijackers to succeed. Among the problems the commission cited was a lack of coordination across intelligence agencies.


Rep. Curt Weldon, a Pennsylvania Republican who serves as vice chairman of the House Armed Services and Homeland Security committees, said a classified military intelligence unit known as "Able Danger" identified the men in 1999.


That's an earlier link to al Qaeda than any previously disclosed intelligence about Atta if the information, which Weldon said came from multiple intelligence sources, is true.


A group of 9/11 widows called the September 11th Advocates issued a statement Wednesday saying they were "horrified" to learn that further possible evidence exists, and they are disappointed the 9/11 commission report is "incomplete and illusory."




Why would the 911 commission report be "incomplete and illusory"...why would we turn our attention overseas when we had already identified an al-quaeda cell in NYC. Why the FUCK was George Tenet given an award recently and commended by the Bush administration.


...and why did i post this in metal heads.
