Sandy Berger's Pants and 9/11
Now we’re starting to get a better idea of why in the world Sandy Berger, President Clinton’s National Security Advisor, would have tried to sneak classified material out in his pants. We already know from the 9/11 Commission hearings that Clinton’s Deputy Attorney General, Jamie Gorelick, made the key decision that prevented the FBI and the CIA from sharing information about terrorists in our midst.
Now we have learned that in 1999 a classified military intelligence unit, known as Able Danger, had identified the cell to which Mohammed Atta belonged and was prevented from sharing that information because it concerned persons who were in this country legally. Able Danger wanted the FBI to round up these people before they could act. A group of 9/11 widows issued a statement Wednesday saying, “The revelation of this information demands answers that are forthcoming, clear and concise. The 9/11 attacks could have and should have been prevented.”
It appears more and more that President Clinton’s legacy is not going to be limited to perjury and to introducing the subject of oral sex to junior high school students. The responsibility for not preventing 9/11 is being laid right in his lap and in the laps of his liberal advisors and appointees and their foolish policies.
