Monday Morning Intelligence and the NY Times with Kool Aid - 17

We are now finally going to get to the meat of the matter.

Via Time Magazine:

"As questions continue to swirl around claims that the Pentagon failed to act on pre-September 11 intelligence about the hijackers, a Senate panel is trying to clear up a key mysteries surrounding the data-mining intel program known as "Able Danger." The Senate Intelligence Committee is asking the Pentagon to let it interview anyone who worked on Able Danger, and last week drafted a letter asking the White House for a copy of a chart that Congressman Curt Weldon claimed in a recent book he gave then-deputy national security adviser Steve Hadley just after the 9/11 attacks."

"Weldon says in the book, Countdown to Terror, that the chart was produced by Able Danger before the attacks and pegged lead hijacker Mohammad Atta as a threat to the U.S. Hadley—since promoted to be President Bush's national security adviser—has refused to confirm or deny the claim. Whether such a chart existed and was given to Hadley could prove or greatly undermine claims by Weldon and a handful of members of the Able Danger team."

At the "proof text" of this story is that blasted chart. If Hadley would just come forward and say, "Yeah I got it" or "Weldon's a nut, I never saw it", we could get on with the summer.

Although Weldon himself seems to be his own worst enemy. First he has the chart with Atta's mug firmly dead center mass. Then he can't remember if Atta was specifically on it. Then he gives the chart to Hadley, and who knows who's picture is on the damn thing or even if there was a chart.

At this point, I'd have to be honest, I think Weldon is ready for the farm. I haven't found a single solitary confirmation of this story from any contact I have with the Pentagon/SOC/ or any other agency I know of - NADA. Believe me I tried. Hell I even broke the family rule (military family); and dropped a dime to my cousin who in 2000 sat at the right hand of Albright (that twit!). Still nothing. No one knows diddle about this program.

In fact, from what I hear, it's becoming a bit of a "joke" in intel circles.

But even worse is the fact that I do believe his rantings will in the long run do more harm than good. Why?

Simply this. Iraq WAS linked to 9/11. That is a fact. The 9/11 Commission ignored all the available and plentiful documentation of this for obviously political reasons.

So why don't I just buy into Able Danger's claim and get the "meme" hits on my little blog?

Simple - it's a bunch of crap, and nothing hurts the "cause" more than laying on a little crap.

The fact that there is a ton of evidence linking Al Qaeda/Bin Laden/Iraq and 9/11. One has only to Google the three to read at will the numerous connections. Even in simplicity one would have to be a moron not to have seen the connections all along. Al Qaeda isn't a "nation", it's an "idea" and that idea permiates and has permiated the Middle east for a long time.

We didn't need a "smoking gun" chart to prove it. Apparently though, Rep. Weldon thinks we did and in the process, if he found to be full of hot air, you can "kiss the recongnition of commission" goodbye forever.

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…
