Able Danger - Hearings Finally - But!...


In my last post on Able Danger I asked, "Is the lid about to be blown off of Able Danger?". We know that 200 members of congress on both sides have endorsed a letter by Rep. Weldon to Sec. Def. Donald Rumsfeld, so something is going to happen. We will most likely have hearings and more testimony, which could drag on for years, even so, just how "much" of that story get's told is the real question.

Since my last post I got razzed a little by other bloggers because of my previous posts in which I saw the story going "bye, bye". Now this wasn't a guess on my part, I got the information from a very high source that for all intents and purposes the story was dead. I was told in so many words, "It's not going anyway mac, people don't want to play the game anymore - time to move on."

Incidently that same source tells me even now, after the letter, the "status" hasn't changed, but that "the feeling" is that since the reporting on the story (though limited), that some type of hearings will be introduced. But there is a "But"

You must realize that hearings require witnesses and documents that have 'strings' attached. So be prepared to see for the most part 'closed meetings', so that testimony will be sealed or classified. Although I suspect that a few may try to get that lid taken off, these things are governed by rules and security. Also people will continually be told not to testify.


Today I read this post by blogger TopDog08, asking why the story of Able Danger was ignored:

"A conversation that keeps coming back to me the last few days is one I had with a friend of mine who is more involved in politics than me. Talking about Able Danger, he said it was not in the interest of either party to go back and dig into what happened before 9/11 any more. That's why they've been treating Able Danger like such a political hot potato."

He also links to Mark Tapscott who writes:

"I would dissent from Freeh's suggestion about the consequences of the commission's Able Danger failure. If the Able Danger scenario is confirmed, and I have little doubt that it will be, the only possible conclusions are that 9/11 represented one of this nation's most colossal intelligence failures and the inability or unwillingness of the 9/11 Commission to even consider the Able Danger facts is indicative of the Washington Establishment's deeply ingrained refusal to assess honestly its role in the 9/11 disaster."

In this post, I said:

" I am also keenly aware of the "Matrix" or the truth of what we think we know, and what really goes on behind closed doors. Back in '85-87 I was smack dab in the middle of one of these "Matrixes", most of us are familiar with. A great leader was caught right in the middle of a "hard squeeze play" and it was amazing to see how the MSM created one reality, the public theirs, but behind the scenes the truth was more "deep" than anyone "outside" could have dreamed of."

The possible scenarios that I outlined in that previous post as reasons for the "total truth" of Able Danger not getting out is 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.

While in my last post I front for all three, but primarily the third, think of the bombshell to the left if the link were irrevocably established? I believe it is, but many would disagree. The point is while the door is wide open it remains to be seen how much of the Able Danger Saga will actually come out.

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 …
