Able Danger - Great Summer Story - 10

Bill Arkin must be a glutton for punishment – Heh, that Army Training!

By the way, if being a former member of “Green Peace”, or some other organization that people find issue with is a disqualifier, then I guess I’m disqualified for “inhaling” during training at Fort Huachuca in the 70s.

Chill folks!

When you get down to it EVERYONE has an agenda, it doesn’t change truth when and IF it is the truth. As I said before, I prefer to "Eat the hay, and spit out the sticks" when it comes to evaluating someone's take on something. I suggest others do the same.

Today Arkin continues his “expose’ on Able Danger – and specifically where things went wrong.

Disabling Able Danger

Nothing new here, yet a few points he made, agree with mine. He brings a few new names to the table. But here is the gist:

1. Whatever Able Danger was in many people’s minds, at this point, I am going to say that it was in fact a rogue operation. Simply put a few “loose” cannons, albeit for honorable purposes, took the original 'idea' beyond it’s original purpose. It isn’t any real secret or “shocker” at this point that they crossed “boundries” they shouldn’t have crossed (real or imagined). At one point (finding that Chinese take out?), they crossed over, and the door was slammed.

2. Every day I beginning to picture Ltc. Shaffer as a member of the same “tin-foil hat society” that I’ve put Weldon in. Sorry folks, but this guy is swinging in the wind in my humble opinion. But then his interview – specifically the last part – was the “Freudian Slip” of this affair, as it was to my estimation the first clear statement of what this story was all about anyway, at least to Weldon and Shaffer.

(Show us the money).

Again, “Witnesses and Experts”, contradictions, misrecollections, etc. The fact is that at this point what is missing is cold hard EVIDENCE.

Witness recollections/statements, etc, are not the kind of “evidence” that will prove this Summer Story true or false. Someone get General Schoomaker on the line (seems he's just as elusive and hardheaded as he was back in Korea with the ole 1/72)

..Come on Pete, tell us one way or the other!

Without that 'hard evidence' at this point you have a whole lot of conflict and questions and quite frankly after us bloggers got involved the whole story may well be FUBAR at this point.

Yeah, hearings might clear things up, then again, they might muddy the waters even more that the "truth" might never see the light of day. But then again, as I asked, "Do we really want to know?"

In any case it was a Great Summer Story though, while it lasted.

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…
