Condoleezza Rice's Unreported 9/11 Testimony
And an Invitation to Join the WantToKnow.info Email List
As a result of my work with the www.WantToKnow.info website, I've come into contact not only with a large international network of cover-up researchers, I've also had significant personal contact with a number of deep insiders who have worked many years in the FBI, CIA, DEA, and more. I frequently receive powerful, sometimes very disturbing information from these sources. I rarely send out this kind of information to this list, as many people don't really want to know all the dark underbelly of everything that is happening. For those who are interested in receiving some of this deep information, click here.
The below piece is a portion of National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice's testimony on April 8th before the 9/11 Independent Commission. This is her interchange with Commissioner John Lehman. I'm sending this information because I found it to be incredibly revealing, yet I could find no significant press coverage of this important portion of her three-hour testimony. You can find this testimony in the complete testimony transcript on the Washington Post website at this link. The portion below is about 2/3 of the way down the webpage.
I also invite you to read our 9-11 timeline at www.WantToKnow.info/9-11cover-up10pg. When you combine the information on our timeline with the below testimony, you will see very strong evidence of complicity by top officials in government in 9/11. Once this information becomes widely know, I am confident that people throughout the country and even the world will begin to demand a new paradigm in government based on true democracy, openness, and cooperation. I welcome your comments on this.
LEHMAN. First, during the short or long transition [between Clinton and Bush administrations] were you told before the summer that there were functioning Al Qaeda cells in the United States?
RICE. In the memorandum that Dick Clarke sent me on Jan. 25 he mentions sleeper cells. There is no mention or recommendation of anything that needs to be done about them. And the F.B.I. was pursuing them. And usually when things come to me it's because I'm supposed to do something about it. And there was no indication that the F.B.I. was not adequately pursuing the sleeper cells.
LEHMAN. Were you told that there were numerous young Arab males in flight training, had taken flight training, were in flight training?
RICE. I was not. And I'm not sure that that was known at the center.
LEHMAN. Were you told that the U.S. Marshal program had been changed to drop any U.S. Marshals on domestic flights?
RICE. I was not told that.
LEHMAN. Were you told that the red team in F.A.A. for 10 years had reported their hard data that the U.S. airport security system never got higher than 20 percent effective and was usually down around 10 percent for 10 straight years.
RICE. To the best of my recollection I was not told that.
LEHMAN. Were you aware that I.N.S. had been lobbying for years to get the airlines to drop the transit without visa loophole that enabled the terrorists and illegals to simply buy a ticket through the transit without visa waiver and pay the airlines extra money and come in.
RICE. I learned about that after Sept. 11.
LEHMAN. Were you aware that I.N.S. had quietly internally halved its internal security enforcement budget?
RICE. I was not made aware of that. I don't remember being made aware of that, no.
LEHMAN. Were you aware that it was the U.S. government established policy not to question or oppose the sanctuary policies of New York, Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago, San Diego for political reasons, which policy in those cities prohibited the local police from cooperating at all with federal immigration authorities?
RICE. I do not believe I was aware of that.
LEHMAN. Were you aware, to shift a little bit to Saudi Arabia, were you aware of a program that was well established that allowed Saudi citizens to get visas without interviews?
RICE. I learned of that after 9/11.
LEHMAN. Were you aware of the activities of the Saudi Ministry of Religious Affairs here in the United States during that transition?
RICE. I believe that only after Sept. 11 did the full extent of what was going on with the Ministry of Religious Affairs became evident.
LEHMAN. Were you aware of the extensive activities that the Saudi government in supporting over 300 radical teaching schools and mosques around the country, including right here in the United States?
RICE. I believe we've learned a great deal more about this and addressed it with the Saudi government since 9/11.
LEHMAN. Were you aware at the time of the fact that Saudi Arabia had, and were you told that they had in their custody the C.F.O. [Chief Financial Officer] and the closest confidante of Al Qaeda, of Osama bin Laden, and that they refused direct access to the United States?
RICE. I don't remember anything of that kind.
LEHMAN. Were you aware that they would not cooperate and give us access to the perpetrators of the Cobar Towers attack?
RICE. I was very involved in issues concerning Cobar Towers and our relations with several governments concerning Cobar Towers.
LEHMAN. Were you aware that it was the policy of the Justice Department, and I'd like you to comment as to whether these continuities are still in place, were you aware that it was the policy and I believe remains the policy today to fine airlines if they have more than two young Arab males in secondary questioning?
RICE. No, I have to say that the kind of inside arrangements for the F.A.A. are not really in my -
LEHMAN. Well, these are not so inside. Were you aware that the F.A.A. up till 9/11 thought it was perfectly permissible to allow four-inch knife blades aboard?
I was not aware.
