Mark Steyn: "Atta way to blow 9/11 panel’s credibility"


Mark Steyn writes an article about the now discredited 9/11 Commission:

If you want to know everything wrong with the 9/11 Commission in a single sound bite, consider this from Al Felzenberg, its official spokesman, speaking Wednesday:

”There was no way that Atta could have been in the United States at that time, which is why the staff didn’t give this tremendous weight when they were writing the report. This information was not meshing with the other information that we had.”

In fairness to Felzenberg, he was having a bad week, and a hard time staying on top of the commission’s ever-shifting version of events. It emerged that the U.S. military had fingered Mohammed Atta — the guy who plowed Flight 11 into the first World Trade Center tower — well over a year before before 9/11. Or as the Associated Press puts it:

“A classified military intelligence unit called ‘Able Danger’ identified Atta and three other hijackers in 1999 as potential members of a terrorist cell in New York City.”

Read the whole article.

What we need now is a full Congressional Investigation into what the Commission knew about relating to 9/11 that they didn’t report, and what they didn’t know that is relevant. The entire 9/11 Commission Report is meaningless.
