Monday Morning Intelligence and the NY Times with Kool Aid - 11

So now we await the Pentagon's take on Able Danger.

Yeah.....I'll bet - can't wait!

At this point I don't see the Pentagon delivering any earth shattering revelations

In fact, I know they won't.

When you think about it,The Pentagon could have answered the questions about Able Danger from the outset had the program been "authorized", but it appears that it was really nothing more than a "super-secret start up". Again, Schoomaker was running this deal under the rug for sure. The Pentagon didn't want to own it then, they definiately don't want it now.

Even if everything Weldon/Schaffer are telling us about Able Danger is true, I doubt the Pentagon issues anything more than a statement like:

"Yeah there was a program....."

"No, it's not a program anymore...."

"No, they didn't actually finger Atta or any other 9/11 hijackers."

"We consider the matter closed".


Watching some of the Commission members today on TV, they are beginning to sound rather.....feisty!

In fact I just heard Timothy J. Roemer saying on Fox News, saying something like, "Hey bring it on! "Where is the beef? The charts?... Show us the proof" (Paraphrase).

Whooboy...

I've seen a lot of this feistiness in the Commission members since they've released their statement a week ago. That statement when you read it is rather absolute. They didn't leave themselves a lot of wiggle room, so they MUST think they know all there is to know at this point.

Additionally, it also sounds like the Commission has already gotten some advance notice or heads up from some Pentagon staffer about what they are going to say about the whole deal.

It's like, "Don't worry, we'll handle it!"

You know? At this point, I'm still not convinced what in the hell we have in this whole thing.

Yeah, there was an Able Danger, and they were data mining, etc. But we still don't know FOR SURE what they found - if anything.

I have to be honest and tell you that Col. Schaffer does not give me a "warm and fuzzy" feeling for some reason. I can't put my finger on it, and maybe I'm full of it....

Or maybe part of the feeling I'm getting is the fact that the good Col. Schaffer is getting better press than I've gathered from some people who know "of him" in Tampa.

There are some people who really think he's just "riding along with Weldon"...you, know, for the fame and fortune.

Maybe it's sour grapes, who knows. The guy seems solid enough, yet, I don't know, my radar is buzzing .....again.

I don't know, and I don't want to say either way.

But at this point we really need to start seeing some REAL IN THE DIRT Able Danger team members.

If as Weldon says "they are ready and willing to come forward", then so be it, Bring 'em on!

But Hurry, August is almost over! You can bet that this story will go south real fast come September during Robert's confirmation hearings as well as the closer we get to the culmination of the Plame Game (Hey! remember that one?)

Heh...

Tom Mcguireis asking some real good questions about this story, and even notes some more "waffling" or more likely that "associative memory" Jpod was talking about poping up on Schaffer's interviews.

He agrees as well, we need real witnesses to come forward...real Able Danger members.

The Captain's Quarters has more on the 911 Commission wiggling....

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Is the lid about to be blown off Able Danger?

Those who have been wishing for a full blown Able Danger investigation are about to get their wish. The "gate" has been unlocked.

9/11 Iraqi Connection

With Democrats calling for yet more investigations into pre-war intelligence, and Republicans like myself pushing back to help their 'sudden amnesia”, the growing stories of Able Danger and even China Gate, are beginning to make news.

The three main theories about why Able Danger hasn't gotten out of the "blog stage", are 1) To hide Clinton era responsibility for stopping the 9/11 attacks, and/or 2) To hide the truth behind China-Gate, or 3) The facts show that there in fact was a direct link between Iraq and 9/11.

Taking either one you can see why the Clinton worshipping MSM for the most part hasn't touched the story. Of the later point, Democrats, the MSM and even some of our investigations state that there was no 'direct' link between Iraq and 9/11. Say otherwise and the MSM will slice and di…

NY Times: 9/11 Commission's Staff Rejected Report on Early Identification of Chief Hijacker

Ok, I've been on the phone now for...oh, about three days, to some old chums in Tampa, checking this story out, asking questions,...etc. So far what I've heard is that IF this story is true, then those who are really in the know in the Intel world are feeling like a bunch of little red-hair step-childred.

Ed. Morissey is ready to hang the 911 Commission out to dry......mmm,

Ed, not so fast my friend.

Again, I am amazed at the vercacity the NY Times and AP is getting on this story, and from the same conservative bloggers who are normally parsing every "dot and tittle" the Times puts out. Who would think?...

Yeah, there is a lot of "anger" because of "Gorelick" fever where the blogshere and conservative media rightfully called attention to her conflict of interest while serving on the commission. But we can't let the "gotc…
