"It really does raise the question about where the [Armed Services] committees are on this," Zaid said. He emphatically states that the two Armed services have "done nothing, at least with respect to contacting Able Danger team members."
Shouldn't these two panels at least have some curiosity about what information the DoD had about al Qaeda prior to 9/11? Everyone else seems to want answers--except those closest to the Pentagon. And Zaid wants Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer to be allowed to supply them.
It's extraordinary that the Armed Services committees would continue to act as wallflowers while the Pentagon they oversee tries to dance Able Danger off the floor.

All of this is so much ado about nothing. As we've learned this week, we just need to trust the government and stop asking questions. To do so shows an alarming distrust in your masters.
Thanks for your continued effort. Great job really and I appreciate it. I am completely fascinated, and still hope that we can somehow break through.
It seems to me that if a small number of congressmen and senators went public on this issue, that with the access to the media they have, they could break this wide open. However, each one of them would risk ruining his or her career.
On the other hand, we have soldiers in Iraq, risking their lives every day to defend our country. It is the responsibility of those in the Senate and Congress, who, among other things, send these men and women into battle, to do their part in the defense of the nation. Able Danger, at this time, is the primary problem that needs to be solved to defend our country.
It seems to me that in a real sense, most of the senators and congressmen (Weldon excepted of course) are guilty of cowardice in this matter.
It occurs to me that one angle could be worked for those with an inside connection, would be to communicate to staffers on the Hill.
"As we've learned this week, we just need to trust the government and stop asking questions. "
Yeah, because politicians and gov't workers are both competent AND trustworthy!!
