Able Danger - Great Summer Story -4

In light of the fact, that "Cobweb" pulled a plug on progress, the Able Danger saga continues on the web.

TopDog08 links to this letter issued by the 911 Commission on 20 September 2005. After perusing it I am even more convinced that whatever 'actvitiy' we see reference to hearings, it's all going to be one big "dog and pony" show from now on.

Why? Despite what Able Danger was, and what they did, the story is about "The Chart", and Weldon's big kahuna is that damn chart with Atta's mug shot on it. Unless he can pull it out of his rear end and soon this is a dead issue. The letter acknowledges "other charts", but not THE chart.

Referencing Weldon giving the chart to Hadley, the Commission states:

"Representitive Weldon apparently didn't not keep a copy of the chart. He never informed the the FBI's PENTTBOM investigation of this chart, a vitally important piece of information. He never informed the Congressional Joint Inquiry of this chart. He never informed the 911 Commission of this chart, even as he had several conversations with 9/11 Commissioners and his officer was in contact with Commission staff."

They also mention that Weldon showing a copy of a chart (and this point who knows), with no Atta or mention of him during his presentation at the Heritage Foundation in 2002.

Additionally according to the Commission, DNSA Hadley mentions nothing of the chart during his interviews with them - which would be a glaring ommission and quite frankly I can't see Hadley doing that.

At this point I would say he's been his own worst enemy in all of this.

While TopDog and and other critics of the 9/11 Commission will claim it's content is character assasination, yet looking at it objectively the letter it does raise some good questions.

For instance, this stinger:

"If all such documents were destroyed, why did Congressman Weldon write he had such a chart in his possession, and provided it to the DNSA immediately after 9/11?"

That's a damn good question.

Additionally: "If all such documents were destroyed why do hundreds of pre-9/11 link analysis charts with the name of terrorists still exist - none of which contain the name Atta?"

The fact of Washington is that it's hard to "kick against the goads", if not impossible. If you're going to "fight the gods" you'd had better have all your ducks in a row. Otherwise it's "Roger-out".

The letter also states that they spoke to General Shelton, General Schoomaker, Admiral Fry, General Newbold, not one remembers or mentions THE chart. Again, a statement - clear and concise - from General Schoomaker's office would be nice. Except that I know who's holding the "cap" on them. Forgetaboutit!

The Chart, the chart, the chart. It's been about THE Chart all along and no one seems to know anything about it EXCEPT Weldon and those under his direct association.

TopDog also references this additional staff letter which I'm going over now, but I don't expect (from just a glance) to find anything significant or what we don't know already.

Looks like "Lights Out" on Able Danger.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?


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

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…
