Pentagon: Secret unit couldn't stop 9/11 - Able Danger
AP on Yahoo ^ | 9/21/06 | Kimberly Hefling - ap

Posted on 09/21/2006 7:14:42 PM PDT by NormsRevenge

WASHINGTON - A Pentagon report rejects the idea that intelligence gathered by a secret military unit could have been used to stop the Sept. 11 hijackings.

The Pentagon inspector general's office said Thursday that a review of records from the unit, known as Able Danger, found no evidence it had identified ringleader Mohamed Atta or any other terrorist who participated in the 2001 attacks.

The report was ordered following the assertion last year that the unit had identified four of the 19 hijackers in 2000. That claim was made by a former intelligence officer who worked on Able Danger, Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer, and by Rep. Curt Weldon (news, bio, voting record), vice chairman of the House Armed Services and Homeland Security committees.

Weldon, R-Pa., has said the unit used data-mining to link Atta and three other hijackers to al-Qaida more than a year before the attacks. The 71-page report, blacked out in parts, rejected Weldon's claim that the unit wanted information given to the FBI but that Pentagon lawyers would not allow it.

Weldon questioned the "motives and the content" of the report and rejected its conclusions. "Acting in a sickening bureaucratic manner, the DOD IG cherry-picked testimony from witnesses in an effort to minimize the historical importance of the Able Danger effort," Weldon said in a statement.

"The report trashes the reputations of military officers who had the courage to step forward and put their necks on the line to describe important work they were doing to track al-Qaida prior to 9/11," Weldon said. He said the investigation did little to answer the questions it was supposed to examine.

The report acknowledged that one Able Danger member alleged he was prohibited from providing a chart to the FBI in 2000 by a senior Special Operations commander. But, the report said, "the senior official did not recall the incident and we are persuaded that the chart would have been of minimal value to the FBI."

The Pentagon had said some employees recall seeing an intelligence chart identifying Atta as a terrorist before the attacks. The report said those accounts "varied significantly" and witnesses were inconsistent at times in their statements.

Several lawmakers had asked the Pentagon to investigate whether Defense Department officials mismanaged Able Danger and retaliated against Shaffer. He was a leading proponent of the program who later had his security clearance revoked.

The report said Shaffer was not retaliated against because of his involvement. But the inspector general did find "procedural oversights" in the handling of his office contents and his performance evaluations.

A message left with Shaffer's lawyer was not returned immediately on Thursday.

Last year, the bipartisan commission that investigated the attacks dispensed with the issue by calling it "not historically significant."

Thomas Kean, the commission's co-chairman, said he hoped the report would put an end to discussion about Able Danger. "After this I don't know where it can go," Kean said.

There's no way a bunch of career bureaucrats in the Pentagon will admit any failures that make Clinton look bad because then they would also be accused of being partisan hacks.

WELDON REJECTS DOD REPORT ON ABLE DANGER & HARASSMENT OF MILITARY OFFICER


WASHINGTON, Sep 21 - U.S. Rep. Curt Weldon, vice chairman of the House Armed Services and Homeland Security Committees, today released the following statement about the Department of Defense Inspector General (DOD IG) report on “Alleged Misconduct by Senior DoD Officials Concerning the Able Danger Program and Lieutenant Colonel Anthony A. Shaffer, U.S. Army Reserve.”

“The purpose of the DOD IG investigation was to shed light on the pressures and harassment placed on LTC Shaffer and other Able Danger team members. It was also supposed to investigate why Able Danger was glossed over by the Pentagon and why there was such a fight to get information out of the Department of Defense about Able Danger, its findings and the reasoning behind destroying crucial data about linkages and relationship of al-Qaeda prior to 9/11. The IG’s report did little to answer these questions.

“The DOD IG failed to brief LTC Shaffer’s lawyer before releasing the report. The contents and overall tone and scope of the report were leaked to the media before Congress was even briefed of its findings. The DOD IG failed to explain in their briefing to me and my staff how such information got out to the media. They said they would investigate, but I have very little confidence that anything will come of that. Also, the timeliness of this report, just weeks before Congressional elections, also raises serious questions about the IG’s motivations.

“Acting in a sickening bureaucratic manner, the DOD IG cherry picked testimony from witnesses in an effort to minimize the historical importance of the Able Danger effort. The IG narrowly focused their investigation on the witnesses recollections of the 9/11 hijackers and a chart. The report trashes the reputations of military officers who had the courage to step forward and put their necks on the line to describe important work they were doing to track al-Qaeda prior to 9/11.

“To further substantiate the Able Danger effort, within the last three months of the DOD IG investigation, another person who recently retired from the military has come forward and corroborated the work of the Able Danger program. Additionally, another official within DOD has conducted data runs of stored pre-9/11 data that has yielded information about the Brooklyn cell.

“They do not explain why LTC Shaffer and other Able Danger principles were harassed by their superiors. Specifically, the report did not address why the Defense Intelligence Agency trumped up phony charges against LTC Shaffer in an effort to revoke his clearance. When the DOD IG briefed me, they could not account for why they failed to interview key witnesses connected to this harassment, except for claiming that these witnesses ‘did not come to us’ – evidence that this was not a proactive investigation.

“The FBI agent that was tasked with setting up meetings between Able Danger and FBI officials – meetings that were block by DOD lawyers – was not interviewed in this report, yet it concluded that ‘Able Danger members were not prohibited from sharing intelligence information with law enforcement authorities.’

“I am appalled that the DOD IG would expect the American people to actually consider this a full and thorough investigation. I question their motives and the content of this report, and I reject the conclusions they have drawn.

Yes...this looks like the "reverse" of Plamegate.

There was a LOT to investigate, but someone didn't want to...or want IT to be investigated, and people to depose...but instead it gets a cursory "nothing to see here, move along"..type treatment.

BLECH

the unit had identified four of the 19 hijackers in 2000.

According to the 9/11 Commission Report we had already identified two of the hijackers in March of 2000 and knew they landed in Los Angeles. Did we look for them? Well....no.

So, down the wormhole. Just like the Waco investigation, the 911 commission report and the recent senate iraq-al-queda report, it was a whitewash and will soon be forgotten. Oh, let's not forget the Cox Report.

I agree with you. I refuse to change my tagllne until Col. Schaffer has his clearance back, and has been listened to.

I'm not holding my breath but I am holding onto my tagline.

I read too much about Able Danger and knew the particular cast of characters at DIA that were so busy in persecuting Col. Schaffer - ADM Jacoby put in for his retirement in a big-O hurry, and so did the major guys next in line. I know enough to know that that is highly suspicious.

I also keep saying, "There but for the grace of God go I.'

I sympathize with Col. Schaffer more than anyone can possibly understand and way more than I am allowed to say.

Bravo, Rep Weldon. I hope he doesn't let this whitewash by the DoD/Pentagon IG stand. Go Weldon!!!!

Why would they want to cover up stuff that mostly occurred during the 'toon regime?

Entrenched, non uniformed (mostly) bureaucrats in the DoD most likely. Lord knows there's plenty of them, each with their own agenda, and trying to build their own fiefdom, quite successfully in most cases, not that Colonels and above aren't bad at that, or at a similar, game.

why did they cover it up?

the likely simple answer - they had access to database information for things they should not have had. if the truth were told here, that would come to light. not that we care mind you, but these career people at DoD don't want to deal with that.

While it is not uncommon for military officers (or DoD civilian employees, for that matter) to turn "whistle-blower" when they have been the subject of an adverse personnel action, that doesn't necessarily mean that whatever they allege is automatically untrue. Sometimes "disgruntled employees" really do know where the "bones are buried".

There are a number of citations in this report that look suspiciously like good old fashioned military CYA at its finest. Among these are the tendency to extend credibility to the utmost for commanding (especially flag rank) officers, while reducing the credibility of field grade officers (even O-6s) and senior DoD civilians to below the level of military cadets. Also there is the attempt to cast Shaffer in a bad light by suggesting that he "stole" the GPS unit. While it's possible that he returned the equipment "after the fact" to avoid being charged with its misappropriation, it it is equally possible that Shaffer believed that he was authorized to keep the unit (apparently property accountability in his outfit was shoddy, at best) or that he simply found the unit in his "deployment bag" and decided to take that opportunity to return it or that the individuals responsible for sending his personal belongings to him did (their denials notwithstanding) ship the GPS unit to him, and he subsequently returned it. This little attempted frame-up is illustrative of the "black and white" tone of the report. It's not possible that people have memory lapses, or different recollections of facts and events. Either Shaffer, and a few other witnesses are "lying", or senior military and civilian officers (heaven fore fend) have had convenient memory lapses.

Amazing how things like this and the Barrett Report just "disappear"...

I think it is about time that they STOP disappearing.

It is also amazing how the NSA surviellance program and the datamining program and the "black prisons" can be "leaked" ...and should be kept a secret (at least for a while)..

But, the reports that have nothing to do with our national security at this point...get buried.

October 1999: CIA Does Not Share Information with Able Danger Program


Capt. Scott Phillpott, head of the Able Danger program, asks Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer to talk to a representative of CIA Director George Tenet and attempt to convince him that the new Able Danger program is not competing with the CIA. Shaffer later recalls the CIA representative replying, “I clearly understand the difference. I clearly understand. We’re going after the leadership. You guys are going after the body. But, it doesn’t matter. The bottom line is, CIA will never give you the best information from ‘Alex Base’ [the CIA’s covert action element targeting bin Laden] or anywhere else. CIA will never provide that to you because if you were successful in your effort to target al-Qaeda, you will steal our thunder. Therefore, we will not support this.” Shaffer claims that for the duration of Able Danger’s existence, “To my knowledge, and my other colleagues’ knowledge, there was no information ever released to us because CIA chose not to participate in Able Danger.” [Government Security News, 9/2005]



January-May 2000: CIA Has Atta Under Surveillance

Hijacker Mohamed Atta is put under surveillance by the CIA while living in Germany. [Agence France-Presse, 9/22/2001; Focus (Munchen), 9/24/2001; Berliner Zeitung (Berlin), 9/24/2001] He is “reportedly observed buying large quantities of chemicals in Frankfurt, apparently for the production of explosives [and/or] for biological warfare.” “The US agents reported to have trailed Atta are said to have failed to inform the German authorities about their investigation,” even as the Germans are investigating many of his associates. “The disclosure that Atta was being trailed by police long before 11 September raises the question why the attacks could not have been prevented with the man’s arrest.” [Observer, 9/30/2001] A German newspaper adds that Atta is able to get a visa into the US on May 18. According to some reports, the surveillance stops when he leaves for the US at the start of June. However, “experts believe that the suspect [remains] under surveillance in the United States.” [Berliner Zeitung (Berlin), 9/24/2001] A German intelligence official also states, “We can no longer exclude the possibility that the Americans wanted to keep an eye on Atta after his entry in the US” [Focus (Munchen), 9/24/2001] This correlates with a Newsweek claim that US officials knew Atta was a “known [associate] of Islamic terrorists well before [9/11].” [Newsweek, 9/20/2001] However, a congressional inquiry later reports that the US “intelligence community possessed no intelligence or law enforcement information linking 16 of the 19 hijackers [including Atta] to terrorism or terrorist groups.” [US Congress, 9/20/2002] In 2005, after accounts of the Able Danger program learning Atta’s name become news, newspaper account will neglect to mention this prior report about Atta being known by US intelligence. For instance, the New York Times will report, “The account [about Able Danger] is the first assertion that Mr. Atta, an Egyptian who became the lead hijacker in the plot, was identified by any American government agency as a potential threat before the Sept. 11 attacks”(see August 9, 2005) .

Reading just that short part about the interaction between Lt. Shaeffer and George Tenent brings up visions of that Path to 9/11 movie that ABC showed a couple of weeks ago.

The scenes with the chaos that WAS going on in American intel circles...lends itself to the idea of Tenet saying what he did...and Able Danger gathering all kinds of information that NEVER gets to anyone that would listen.

It's America's black eye.

Bureaucrats seldom leave with an administration, nor do polices do a 180. We have a history of blundering in terror against the US and bringing that info to light does no good for the prestige of foreign policy by the entrenched (Republican too) federal government.

A lot of the stuff on the site has been updated with recent dates. I have the old copies on file but a script error keeps popping up and won't let me 'Copy and Paste' them here.

That report that came out today is a load of bull and they know it. They'd taken the fake Wilson/Plame case as far as they could, so threw a spoke in the wheel there to put it on light simmer, and other than trying to stop Curt Weldon being re-elected I have to wonder if this has been put out as another false trail to stop anyone following the 'Oil-For-Food' scandal which has so many legs leading back to Slick and Hitlery's illegal campaign contributions and their contacts and dealings with U.S. enemies.

The CIA and other government depts are crammed full of clinton rogues and we won't be safe until they've all been routed out.

Mr. 'expert' Larry Johnson spent a total of 4 years at the CIA [which means in my book he was still a rookie when he left, or was forced out] He left in 1993, yet listening to what he says it's obvious he's still privy to classified information somehow. It's time someone got off their duff and investigated him and all the other VIP's to find out where all the leaks are coming from.

I know, that Barrett Report that supposedly has all kinds of "names" and other information that could harm the Clintons has been totally forgotten I guess.

Even though Tony Snow got Mitch McConnell to say he would report about what it said...when Tony had his radio show...I don't think anything HAS been said since Tony left that show..

You don't think he was given the Press Secretary job to keep him off the Barrett Report trail, do you? LOL...just kidding.

Don't even think that......we have to believe there's some that still wear white hats, or we'd join the rest and go insane.

No matter what the latest scandal is about, like every other one before it, it leads right back to the clinton's and sandy burgler's underwear.

WHY are they denying Able Danger PING!!!! This is SO infuriating ... the rogues are still at work, or something. Anyone .. please ping me if news of LtCol. Shaffer makes any statements or appears anywhere. I can't imagine what he's going through. 'Course, this also makes Weldon look like a certifiable nutjob. Jeeze.

Well, of course, they are covering up the Able Danger story. It was integral to Bush's orchestration of the Srptember 11 attacks. /s

Maybe it would help if someone in Curt Weldon's area could get a copy of this thread into his hands.
