Able Danger - It was a nice Summer Strory - 8

Per TopDog08:

"After hearing last night that Curt Weldon would be on 540AM in Orlando at 8AM this morning, I signed up for their free registration so I could listen online. For once, I didn't sleep through my alarm clock, and it was worth it for the five minutes that Weldon was actually on, starting at about 8:47AM.

First, Weldon said Hadley's staff had told his staff "this morning" that the Washington Post misquoted him. That the reporter "got it wrong" and that what the Post printed was not what he meant to say. It's not entirely clear from Weldon which part Hadley now says the reporter got wrong, but I hope Hadley will clarify that point. Weldon also referred to some evidence he was considering bringing forward to "prove" his own version of the account. Very interesting.

Second, Weldon said the DIA had stepped up significantly its actions against members of the Able Danger team since the hearing last week. Weldon attributed this to bureaucrats in DIA who had worked in both the Bush and Clinton administration and were covering their ass. Could be, but I'm still thinking their orders came from higher up.

That was the only new information I heard in the brief segment, but if you heard anything else or think I got it wrong, leave me a comment or send me an email and let me know what I missed."


Sorry, I'm not buying anything Weldon says until I heard that retraction from Hadley himself, or from his staff.

If Hadley would have felt so "misquoted" he would have had his spokesman issue statement to that affect to the media, not just told Weldon.

I'm really starting to see Weldon's Tin Foil!

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.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
