Cole family member speaks out

From WVEC-TV in Norfork, Virginia:

Weldon alleges that a Pentagon intelligence unit called Able Danger uncovered evidence of a plot against an unnamed U.S. target in the port of Aden, Yemen.

"It could be anything from gross incompetence to a cover-up bigger than Watergate,” Rep. Weldon said, adding that military leaders failed to act on the warnings.

That’s not surprising to John Clodfelter, whose son Kenneth died in the attack. He told 13News the news confirms what he and other Cole families have suspected all along.

"I think somebody should go to jail for it,” he said....

Clodfelter says he believes his son and the 16 other sailors could still be alive if someone would have acted.
