Once we throw this ass out of the White House or his term finally expires we need to investigate the September 11th terrorist attacks again, because the 9/11 commission did not get all the facts.
Members of the independent commission that investigated the Sept. 11 terror attacks called on Congress to determine whether the Pentagon withheld intelligence information showing that a secret American military unit had identified Mohammed Atta and three other hijackers as potential threats more than a year before the attacks.
The former commission members said the information, if true, could rewrite an important chapter of the history of the intelligence failures before Sept. 11, 2001.
“I think this is a big deal,” said John F. Lehman, a Republican member of the commission who was Navy secretary in the Reagan administration. “The issue is whether there was in fact surveillance before 9/11 of Atta and, if so, why weren’t we told about it? Who made the decision not to brief the commission’s staff or the commissioners?”
“If this is true, somebody should be looking into it,” said Thomas H. Kean, the commission chairman and a former Republican governor of New Jersey.
Spokesmen for the commission members said this week that although the staff was informed by the Pentagon in late 2003 about the existence of a so-called data-mining operation called Able Danger, the panel was never told that it had identified Mr. Atta and the others as threats.
