Monday Morning Intelligence and the NY Times with Kool Aid - 15

Alright, I've been to the mountain on this Able Danger story.....and found it wanting!

Let's review shall we?

First, the core of the story, to wit:

"In September 2000, one year before the Al Qaeda attacks of 9/11, a U.S. Army military intelligence program, known as “Able Danger,” identified a terrorist cell based in Brooklyn, NY, one of whose members was 9/11 ringleader Mohammed Atta, and recommended to their military superiors that the FBI be called in to “take out that cell,” according to Rep. Curt Weldon, a longtime Republican congressman from Pennsylvania who is currently vice chairman of both the House Homeland Security and House Armed Services Committees."

The entirety of this story, and Weldon's charge of FBI/CIA "stonewalling" hinges on whether this "cell" actually existed.

I mean, like brother Porky said, Thatss, alllll folks!

That's the whole ballgame. If this cell didn't exist, there is no story - period.

As it stands now, however, it just looks like this who story has been just another "book selling moment".

Consider the facts:

1. Beside Weldon's assertions above, a Government Security News article, and three uncolaborated witnesses - what other solid evidence is there that this "Brooklyn Cell" EVER existed? Moreover, that Mohammed Atta, or any other 9/11 hijacker was a member of it?

(Buzzer Sound!)

The answer is None!

Isn't that simple?

Oh, we have speculation galore among bloggers and MSM pundits. But speculation isn't evidence.

It is amazing that no one at the Pentagon, State Department, NIS, CIA can or will positively confirm this information about a "cell in Brooklyn" in 1999/2000. Quite the contrary, according to what we hear, no one can find jack- squat on it. Specifically there is NO colaboration from the Intel world - CIA/NIS/ not even Army Intelligence and hell they OUGHT to know, the supposed AD team members were using their facilities!

To be more clear, there is absolutely NO documentation to back up Ltc. Schaffer or the other 'witnesses' and Weldon's claims - NADA. There is NO chart, no 'spreadsheets', no "backups" and no "team".

Another point....!

One would think with the numerous leaks that came out/continue to come out of the Plame Game that SOMETHING would have leaked out the Pentagonby now.

You would think by now that some document, any document, anything...

I mean, IF they're were ANYTHING, there would be SOMETHING OUT by now. But there hasn't been a blasted thing OUTSIDE of Weldon's Book Script.

Maybe even a memo, you know, with a little "S" on it next to Plame's name....would surface by now - but it hasn't.

Again, this story began with a story - that the 9/11 hijackers were in Brooklyn a year before 9/11 - and it's where - unless there is new solid evidence - where the story will die - a story.

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…

Able Danger - Pulling Back the Covers of the real Clinton Legacy

First, let's dispense with the bull crap. The meeting between Mohammed Atta and Iraqi Intelligence officer Al-Ani, on April 8th, 2001 happened.

Yet, just don't mention it to the MSM, becaue since May of 2002, the MSM declared an all out assault on the story. A meeting incidently, that the Czech government has to this date stood by.

Let's review a little history:

October 13, 2001: Story of the meeting is leaked from somewhere in the Czech foreign service.

yet.....

October 20, 2001: Ny Times, John Tagliabue writes a story citing other Czech officials said the meeting never took place.

so.....

October 26, 2001: Czech Minister of the Interior, Stanislav Gross has a press conference not only confirming the orginal report but giving further details of Atta's other trip to Prague in June 2000.

then.....

October 27, 2001: The NY Times "recants" the October 20th denial.

The story continues it's oddessy of 'back and forth' until May 1st, 2002, when Walter P…
