I almost didn't believe my eyes. FOXnews has the following:
"Rep.: Officials Monitored Hijackers Before 9/11 Attacks"
"U.S. law enforcement never received information on Sept. 11 ringleader Mohammed Atta and his possible connections to Al Qaeda, even though that information was known more than a year before the attacks that left more than 3,000 people dead, Rep. Curt Weldon said Tuesday.
"Weldon, a Pennsylvania Republican and vice chairman of the House Armed Services and Homeland Security committees, said the hijackers were identified in 1999 by a classified military intelligence unit known as "Able Danger", which determined they could be members of an Al Qaeda cell. A military spokesman would not confirm or deny the unit's existence to FOX News.
"A Weldon spokesman told FOX News that his boss stands by the claim that military intelligence identified the hijackers who were operating inside the United States.
"Weldon said that in September 2000, the unit recommended that its information on the hijackers be given to the FBI "so they could bring that cell in and take out the terrorists", Weldon said in an interview with the Associated Press.
"However, Weldon said Pentagon lawyers rejected the recommendation because they said Atta and the others were in the country legally.
"In fact, I'll tell you how stupid it was. They put stickies on the faces of Mohammed Atta on the chart that the military intelligence unit had completed and they said you can't talk to Atta because he's here on a green card", Weldon said".
