Waxman calls for hearings on new 911 evidence

by Ben Frank Sunday, Feb. 13, 2005 at 4:43 AM

Reps Henry Waxman and Carolyn Maloney have called for hearings based on the new evidence of that the FTAA received 52 warnings mentioning Osama Bin Laden between April and September 10, 2001. Also, in the summer of 2001 the FAA sent a CD-ROM alert to airports mentioning the possibility of suicide hijackings.

Reps Henry Waxman and Carolyn Maloney have called for hearings based on the new evidence of that the FTAA received 52 warnings mentioning Osama Bin Laden between April and September 10, 2001. Also, in the summer of 2001 the FAA sent a CD-ROM alert to airports mentioning the possibility of suicide hijackings.

These are the two questions Waxman and Maloney say are worth investigating:

A. Why did the Whitehouse block the release of this information until after the election?

B. Why did Condoleeza Rice state: "I don’t think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center."?


Ms Rice, also testified at the 9/11 Commission:

"Oh, but there were these reports in 1998 and 1999, the intelligence community did look at information about this. To the best of my knowledge, Mr. Chairman, this kind of analysis about the use of airplanes as weapons actually was never briefed to us. I cannot tell you that there might not have been a report here or a report there that reached somebody in our midst. All that I can tell you is that it was not in the August 6th memo, using planes as a weapon, and I do not remember any reports to us, a kind of strategic warning that planes might be used as a weapon. In fact, there were some reports done in ’98 and ’99. I think I was - I was certainly not aware of them at the time that I spoke."

Now we know that the FAA issued an alert mentioning suicide hijackings in the summer of 2001- this doesn't look good for Condoleeza.

Waxman concludes that this raises "serious questions about her preparation and competency" or perhaps "Ms. Rice knew about the FAA warnings but provided misleading information to the public and the Commission."

Reps Waxman and Maloney are calling for hearings on this new evidence, but it is Reform Committee Chair Republican Tom Davis that holds the power to call the hearings.
