Able Danger - "Can We Handle the Truth?" - 1

Ok folks following the "Story of the Summer", which changed from "Monday Morning Intelligence with the NY Times and Kook Aid", for those keeping track.

Just looking over this Newsday article via Qtmonster and this statement of Weldon kind of jumped out at me

"The fact that the our government had this information at one time, and possibly destroyed it, is haunting," Weldon says, adding that he does not believe the military's account that the Able/Danger data were destroyed only to comply with Pentagon regulations.

"I seriously have my doubts that it was routine," he says."


One of the madening questions - at least for some conservatives with an interest in this story is "Why in the hell is the Bush Administration being so 'tight' on this story?" I mean, "Why the stonewall?"

I think that originally people jumped on this story for the connections it had to the 911 Commission/Jamie Gorelick/Wall stuff. "Finally we got 'em!"

But after this story has been jumped all over and has been spun around all summer (at least by bloggers and a few in the MSM), you would think the Bush Administration would come out by now and say something - anything.

Now I put out last week and my source isn't budging that Cobweb - i.e. VP Cheney pulled the plug on witness participation, alhtough that appeared to reverse itself when new hearing were scheduled. Then those were pulled for the Jewish Holiday, so... back to square one.

Although I note that "reversal" came as Cobweb was entering the hospital or about that time.

in any case those hearing are on hold - a long hold - like the one you get put on when you call Dell Computer to complain.

So back to the 'disturbing question", i.e.; "Who loses if the whole story breaks?"

Well if it get's out that Hadley really did take a chart from Weldon to "take it to the man", then the man is up craps creek and incidently so is the present administration.

Hadley so far (as his spokesman) denies only that Atta wasn' on the "something" that Weldon showed him - again, "he said, he said, and no one kept a copy".

Now if you peruse some of the contributors to this story (no names), you find that some of them predominately post over at sites like Daily Kos and other left wing sites.

No problem, everyone has an agenda, but there is a ground swell of opinion from "down under" that seems to be picking up steam that it's not "Clintonistas", but "Bushhilters" that are the true culprits or "targets" and suspects of a coverup. I'm afraid that if the MSM in their present FEMA/Katrina/Rita/Delay/Frist feeding frenzy caught that angle (no matter if true or not), this thing hits the front page everywhere.

"Annie, get my gun please...."

Again, for those conservative bloggers, I asked, "Do they really want the truth".

I'll answer for myself, "Absolutely". I don't give a squat who sells us up a river, I want them hung at Sunnup - or Sundown.

But I am also keenly aware of the "Matrix" or the truth of what we think we know, and what really goes on behind closed doors. Back in '85-87 I was smack dab in the middle of one of these "Matrixes", most of us are familiar with. A great leader was caught right in the middle of a "hard squeeze play" and it was amazing to see how the MSM created one reality, the public theirs, but behind the scenes the truth was more "deep" than anyone "outside" could have dreamed of.

Well enough reminiscing.

For now unless something gets crazy or I'm spiked by one of AJ's great posts, I'm bailing on the Great Summer Story for now. Most of what we are seeing isn't new, and the rest is rehashed. Until there are real hearings (not holding my breath), we are simply not going to know squat more than we know now. Until then, the story may linger, but I don't see it prevailing - ESPECIALLY as long as the powers that be say "Cease".

Besides, Delay's in a jam, the MSM is out of control and we've got another pick on the SCOTUS. Not to mention 06/08 and I work on the Republican team down here in South Florida - it's fixing to get hot.

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…

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

Followup to previous post.

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…
