An Incomplete Investigation
Why did the 9/11 Commission ignore "Able Danger"?
November 17, 2005 / by FBI Director LOUIS FREEH / http://tinyurl.com/78xy9
Yet this is also a good time for the country to make some assessments of the 9/11 Commission itself. Recent revelations from the military intelligence operation code-named "Able Danger" have cast light on a missed opportunity that could have potentially prevented 9/11. Specifically, Able Danger concluded in February 2000 that military experts had identified Mohamed Atta by name (and maybe photograph) as an al Qaeda agent operating in the U.S. Subsequently, military officers assigned to Able Danger were prevented from sharing this critical information with FBI agents, even though appointments had been made to do so. Why?
There are other questions that need answers. Was Able Danger intelligence provided to the 9/11 Commission prior to the finalization of its report, and, if so, why was it not explored? In sum, what did the 9/11 commissioners and their staff know about Able Danger and when did they know it?
The Able Danger intelligence, if confirmed, is undoubtedly the most relevant fact of the entire post-9/11 inquiry. Even the most junior investigator would immediately know that the name and photo ID of Atta in 2000 is precisely the kind of tactical intelligence the FBI has many times employed to prevent attacks and arrest terrorists. Yet the 9/11 Commission inexplicably concluded that it "was not historically significant." This astounding conclusion--in combination with the failure to investigate Able Danger and incorporate it into its findings--raises serious challenges to the commission's credibility and, if the facts prove out, might just render the commission historically insignificant itself. http://www.opinionjournal.com/extra/...

Another Sept 11th terrorist attack.
But, we elected the first anti christian/anti jewish/ Pro Muslim President. We abandoned allies and cowered before Islam and it still isn't enough to buy our safety.
We beg you. We know we Obamites are not worthy but PLEASE have mercy on us oh powerful Muslims.

If you recall, there was a lot of opposition to the 9/11 commission. The bush administration was loath to let anyone investigate anything unless they controlled the result. The only way the commission was allowed to proceed was if the mission statement was that they would not investigate what happened, only to investigate how to prevent it from happening again. It was clear they were not to investigate what happened.
It is telling that the first recommendation on how to prevent that kind of attack from happening again was to make sure the military was not put on stand down.
It is easy to read the mission statement and find out for yourself.

I am in total agreement with you.
Senator Daschle agreed with Cheney not to investigate 9/11/01.
It was pressure from the Jersey Girls that forced them to get at least a waterdown investigation.
Proving that both parties do not represent us in Washington DC.
Americans need a viable third and fourth party who will represent “We The People” instead of the wealthy few who own Congress!

The USS Stark Incident
#131 Sep 12, 2012
Captain Glenn R. Brindel, was the Commanding officer of USS Stark and was in command when the ship was attacked and struck by two Exocet missiles in the Persian Gulf on May 17, 1987. The incident review board, led by Rear Admiral Grant Sharp, recommended he be court-martialed for his actions. However, he was relieved of command and given non-judicial punishment by Adm. Frank B. Kelso II, commander of the Atlantic fleet. According to the New York Times, in 1987 he received a letter of reprimand and elected to retire early. He had not served as a Captain long enough to retire at that grade, so he had to retire at the grade of Commander. The U.S. Naval Register, however, lists Brindel as retiring October 2, 1990, as a Captain. 37 sailors were killed in the attack.

The day after he was removed as Penn State's head football coach, Joe Paterno danced into his kitchen as he listened to the tunes of his fraternity from more than 60 years ago.
" 'Deke' songs never change," Paterno said, as he put his arms around a couple of current members of Delta Kappa Epsilon, Executive Vice President Kevin MacDonald recalled.
As a member of the Phi Rho chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon, MacDonald and his brothers shared a unique bond with Paterno, who was a member of the Upsilon chapter at his alma matter, Brown University. Though many individuals felt like they were "part of the family" when it came to their relationship with Paterno, the members of DKE shine a new light on feeling a familial relationship with a man they still barely knew.
Paterno was a political conservative and a personal friend of President George H. W. Bush, endorsing him as a candidate in a speech at the 1988 Republican National Convention. Paterno was also a close friend of President Gerald R. Ford, and introduced President George W. Bush at a campaign rally before the 2004 presidential election. Before the 1974 Pennsylvania gubernatorial election, a group of Pennsylvania Republican Party leaders briefly considered Paterno for Andrew Lewis' ticket as the candidate for lieutenant governor

9/11 was an inside job just like Pearl Harbor and the OKC bombing.
The Freemasons admit "we have stage-managed whole peoples". They originated The Protocols of the Learned elders of Sion in France or maybe hell. Obama is illegal as he is NOT a natural-born Citizen and he was born in Kenya. His mother was a pornstar.
