Able Danger - Great Summer Story -10

AJ over at Strata Sphere has a new bit of news on the Great Summer Story of Able Danger:

"Lo and Behold! We have a new voice speaking on the subject of Able Danger - someone never before heard from:

"Rep. Curt Weldon, Pennsylvania Republican, correctly asserts the terrorist attack on America on September 11, 2001, could have been averted. The assertion was based on his efforts as early as 1999 to create a national collaborative or fusion center.

"Mr. Weldon first sought help from Eileen Preisser, who ran the Information Dominance Center at the U.S. Army’s Land Information Warfare Activity (LIWA) at Fort Belvoir, Va. He then asked this writer to work with Ms. Preisser to see how the Army initiative could be expanded into a national effort."

Well ‘this writer’ is “F. Michael Maloof … a former senior analyst in the Office of the Defense Secretary” and he is no low level person. We also now have an indication of where the initial resistance may to Able Danger may have come from. I say ‘may’ because I still think the true source of the major resistance was the DoD Counsel’s office."


('Plubbbbb!!! - Sound of a Raspberry on this one - sorry)

First, where, while I agree Maloof impressive witness, just where has Mr. Maloof been all through the Summer?

That aside, Mr. Maloof isn't really telling us stuff we don't know.

In fact, much of what he says in this article is a rehash of Weldon's June 27th, 2005 speech, specifically with reference to NOAH. Interestingly enough that speech occured on the same date (for effect?), that the " June 27, 2005 article in The Washington Times appeared, that "reported U.S. investigators were concerned with China and its middlemen increasingly and illegally obtaining "sensitive or classified U.S. weapons technology" from U.S. companies"

Now aside from my skeptism (which I admit wanes a bit daily); the China Connection does wake my attention as my of my primarily skills in the Army had to so with what was at the time, Soviet/Sino Airland Battle Doctrine.

Earlier in the year I posted a series on "Keeping Our Eyes on the East", about the growning Russian/Sino alliance which I believe to be a bigger threat long term than current situation with terrorism.

In fact, I suspect that our modern terrorism may be a bit of a smoke screen to hide the bigger story.

As we know the Pentagon, released a report on the strenghtening of the Chinese Military, and indeed, it's recent co-military exercises with Russia are simply "dry runs", to repell the US when (and it is when) China invades Taiwan.

Back when China was angling to buy Unocal, it got my skivvies in in a uproar, as it did other analysis's in Washington and elsewhere. Other's weren't convinced it detailed a threat.

Thanks to some covert ops the deal fell through.

However, I'm now a little refreshed and interested in checking further into this link.

My god, dare I say, the Great Summer Story continues?

Perhaps.

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…

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…
