Looks like the Post is dribbling out the truth while everyone is busy with Katrina's aftermath.

Cool! Thanks!

Also, looks like they found some documentation, according to this thread, and it also says some senior officials are preparing to exit stage left because they know what's coming.

Weldon's talk to Larry DiRita seems to have worked.

Thanks for the *ping*. Yep. The other shoe just dropped. So much for the "we didn't know/never knew/forgot/lost it" defense. Curt Weldon is due a BIG apology. And soon.

Are these the first Able Danger people "found" by the Pentagon? Seems just a few weeks ago they did not even acknowledge Abel Danger existed.

I think a whole shoe store has already dropped regarding Able Danger and the story doesn't seem to have legs. Is it because it's yesterday's news?.....or because we are focused on New Orleans or that moonbat who's son dies in Iraq? Or does it go deeper than that?

My tin foil hat's readio signals tell me from time to time that a lot of the "old guard" at the Pentagon who remain loyal to the white trash from Arkansas don't want to see this stuff see the light of day. I know many of them are well connected with the main stream media and feed them all sorts of contradictory information, yet all these guys coming forward seem credible. My only question is why did they all wait this long to open up about this?

Need to get a signup sheet of those who did and DID NOT see the information. Start to determine who merely wasn't present, who "fogot", and who buried it.

"... they have been unable to find the chart or other evidence that it existed."


THAT'S A BOLD FACED LIE!! There is a video of a meeting held by Weldon in which the chart is clearly seen.

THE CHART DID EXIST - and even if the democrats ordered it destroyed after 9/11 - to protect their own behinds - it's too late - there is proof it existed and Atta's name is clearly seen on the video.

"The other shoe just dropped."

There will be more. Mark Levin read from the AP release and said that the Pentagon "still couldn't find the chart". Weldon has a witness who will 'name names' regarding the destruction of materials under threat of 'jail'. We're talking a centipede with shoes here, Dog....

Good news!! Momentum is building, sounds like there are more potential witnesses for the SJC hearings, but some real documentation would still be a BIG help.....

fwiw, I've been reading this guy "Captain V" -- a blogger who is supposed to be very well wired into federal security agencies, and he says there are supposed to be several uppper-level people related to AD scurrying for the exits in the near future:
http://voiceofthetaciturn.blogspot.com/2005/08/almost-too-good-to-be-true-update.html

"Update I: Now it may be strictly coincidence (ahem), but I have it on good authority that at least one agency related to the ABLE DANGER controversy is seeing movement at the upper echelons. The #3 executive, the head of a major directorate, and several other seniors are making for the door. Hmmm. Maybe I should have put money down on this after all."

That's where I sent a URL to you on another post. Voice of the Taciturn. Bump into this thread some time back from another link. One will notice he specifically makes mention that there is a chance that the stuff really did not get "wiped" as so many have purported.

Do you think people were aware of this before now and were just riding it out until Weldon blew the whistle

or

do you think segments of the Pentagon didn't know and are now realizing that some weird shiite was going on and was buried?

I'll bet Rummy didn't know and is ticked off that he was not informed. Behind the scenes and very quietly he is probably demanding all those involved to get on the ball or pay the piper. One thing that will come out in the hearings is that Rummy was never briefed by the outgoing def-sec about ALL the programs that were being run.


It is going to very interesting.

Yes, thanks, I'd meant to comment on that -- I have read this guy a few times over the past couple of weeks, as he's been linked in several discussions of AD. He seems to be a current or former Military Intelligence guy, as far as I can tell (but I have no professional background in this area - I'm just an interested citizen!). Anyway, he does claim to have some inside 'connections'.... wouldn't we love to know who is heading for the exits, i.e., are they Clinton political appointees and/or if career people were they advanced by the Clintonistas in the way that Wesley Clark was popped up in rank over dozens of other general officers because Clinton needed a liberal "perfumed prince".....

I think you are right. He is the only high ranking official so far that has confirmed the story.

I would agree that he is mighty P.O.ed. No one wants to find out after the fact that stuff went on potentially under the radar.

Good leaders don't like to have secrets kept from them.

Perhaps we shall see some interesting stuff come out of that site as DIA/AD issues continue to fester. If the Senate JC does not whitewash the investigation, perhaps we have not seen the end to it. Sure looks like if a lot is made public, dispite the wrong tag applied to her, Condi may end up on the short stick. Whatever may surface publically on Reno,Gorelick,Clark,Berger,Tenet,etc., will be super minimized or outright avoided if at all possible and the L/MSM will synthesize a whole array of charges against the current SoS, and GWB's role which will obviously be distored to no end. So if this all goes quitely away expect it to have been agreed upon that no one gets hurt or time for the Demos to go into super high gear on smear and deceit tactics with their ever willing L/MSM operatives. I have no other way to look at it. Please do not feel obligated to respond unles you feel you want to add/detract from what I just wrote.

Schaffer already has stated that as far as he knows, Weldon personally gave a copy of the CHART to Hadley of NSC two weeks AFTER 9-11. Obviously this is true, or Weldon wouldn't be going down this road.

So they really don't need a Pentagon copy.

HOWEVER, If Hadley's chart is ALSO missing...somebody REALLY has to explain who, what, where, when, why.

secret unit code-named Able Danger used data mining _ searching large amounts of data for patterns _ to identify Atta in 2000.

Aka PROMIS (Prosecutor Management Information System). Want to curl your toes? Google

PROMIS and "Vince Foster"

and read away.

Pentagon officials said Thursday they have found three more people who recall an intelligence chart that identified Sept. 11 mastermind Mohamed Atta as a terrorist one year before the attacks on New York and Washington. But they have been unable to find the chart or other evidence that it existed.

Whoa! That IS good news. Thanks for the ping.
