A draft proposal floating behind closed doors would reconstitute and improve upon a former Army data-mining program called Able Danger.
Able Providence, as the new program has been dubbed, would establish robust open-source harvesting capabilities to give military and law enforcement agencies the information to take the initiative in the war on terrorismthat is, to be able to plan and execute offensive measuresin addition to continued defensive actions.
In addition, the program would be driven by a presumption that use of weapons of mass destruction within the United States is possible. As a result, Able Providence would need to detect, track and target terrorists as they move from location to location and reorganize their cells.

What's the use if future administrations can merely write a memo and seal intelligence gathering from the executive and law enforcement?
The possibility of another Gorelick Wall needs to be dealt with by making such an action illegal.

...8,9,10,11...where's that ACLU protest?
This is one positive benefit from the Able Danger controversy. Ultimately, there will be a number of piecemeal benefits such as this. Hopefully, also an uncovering of the coverup.
