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?

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

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 …
