Normal Was Mohammed Atta a Patsy?

There are things that are beginning to not add up regarding the US government's recent comments about 9/11 and the hijackers who were involved.

Today this article was written:

Quote:
Congressman: Atta papers destroyed on orders
Pentagon denies having any documents on lead hijacker prior to 9/11

Updated: 3:53 a.m. ET Sept. 16, 2005
WASHINGTON - A Pentagon employee was ordered to destroy documents that identified Mohamed Atta as a terrorist two years before the 2001 attacks, a congressman said Thursday.

The employee is prepared to testify next week before the Senate Judiciary Committee and was expected to identify the person who ordered him to destroy the large volume of documents, said Rep. Curt Weldon, R-Pa.

Weldon declined to identify the employee, citing confidentiality matters. Weldon described the documents as “2.5 terabytes” — as much as one-fourth of all the printed materials in the Library of Congress, he added.

A Senate Judiciary Committee aide said the witnesses for Wednesday's hearing had not been finalized and could not confirm Weldon’s comments.

Pentagon: Nothing found
Army Maj. Paul Swiergosz, a Pentagon spokesman, said officials have been “fact-finding in earnest for quite some time.”

“We’ve interviewed 80 people involved with Able Danger, combed through hundreds of thousands of documents and millions of e-mails and have still found no documentation of Mohamed Atta,” Swiergosz said.

He added that certain data had to be destroyed in accordance with existing regulations regarding “intelligence data on U.S. persons.”

Did program exist?
Weldon has said that Atta, the mastermind of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and three other hijackers were identified in 1999 by a classified military intelligence unit known as “Able Danger,” which determined they could be members of an al-Qaida cell.

On Wednesday, former members of the Sept. 11 commission dismissed the “Able Danger” assertions. One commissioner, ex-Sen. Slade Gorton, R-Wash., said, “Bluntly, it just didn’t happen and that’s the conclusion of all 10 of us.”

Weldon responded angrily to Gorton’s assertions.

“It’s absolutely unbelievable that a commission would say this program just didn’t exist,” Weldon said Thursday.

Pentagon officials said this month they had found three more people who recall an intelligence chart identifying Atta as a terrorist prior to the Sept. 11 attacks.

Two military officers, Army Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer and Navy Capt. Scott Phillpott, have come forward to support Weldon’s claims.

2.5 Terabytes? That is 2500 Megabytes. That is a ton of information. I do not know about most of you, but I know that my company has at least 3 levels of data redundancy backup. Meaning - we do not lose information! And I do nothing along the lines of what the government does.

Why would all the info we have on Atta be ordered to be destroyed?

Another question that came to mind was, I rememebr right after 9/11 all the newspapers, on word from the government, claimed that Atta was the mastermind of the whole scheme - literally days after the incident.

How could they have possibly known this so fast?

I am not one who totally believes in conspiracy theories, and I think the "reopen911" is total horseshit, but there are a number of things happening that just do not add up with what the US government has to say about Atta and the rest.

Thoughts?

What do you mean by source? It's on all the news wires, I assume for now that Curt Weldon is being completely truthful about it since I have no reason to believe otherwise. The employee is anonymous for now until he/she comes forward.

It's just plain stupid to destroy this much information about someone who did stuff like this.

"The Department of Defense forbade a military intelligence officer to testify Wednesday about the work of a secret military unit that identified four 9/11 hijackers more than a year before the Sept. 11 terrorists attacks, according to the man's attorney.

In written testimony prepared for the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, attorney Mark Zaid, who represents Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer, said the Pentagon also refused to permit testimony there by a defense contractor that he also represents.

The Judiciary Committee was scheduled to hear testimony about the work of a classified unit code named "Able Danger."
