    potential terrorist that is on our airlines It is scandalous that we still spend the money without establishing what the priorities are The administration is fighting a battle to preserve the right to torture And they are fighting Congress over that issue And they are not fighting the Congress in trying to get the spectrum for our first responders trying to get a seamless communication system And Congress for its part you got like Curt Weldon running around whacking the 9 11 Commission It doesn t have we don t have any power left I would say to Mr Weldon if you are concerned about Able Danger why don t you subpoena the Department of Defense Why don t you subpoena Stephen Hadley Instead they are running around you know running their mouth talking about how the 9 11 Commission didn t do everything it was supposed to do We we only had the subpoena power for 15 months Pop quiz Which of the following could have prevented 9 11 A More radio frequencies for first responders B Smarter local homeland security spending C Clearer guidelines about detainee torture D None of the above posted by Supporter 2 53 AM View our Able Danger timeline Read Tony Shaffer s testimony Listen to audio of the hearing Browse the hearing transcript Demand more news coverage Support a new investigation Add a banner to your site Disclaimer WWW Able Danger Blog About Us Vi is QT Monster Mike is TopDog08 Voxott is Voice of the Taciturn Email Us Contact at AbleDangerBlog Com Links Able Danger Overview Able Danger Twenty Questions Latest Able Danger Video Clips Able Danger Press Conference Able Danger Hearing Testimony Whistleblower Hearing Video Able Danger Timeline Able Danger on Google News Able Danger on Technorati Able Danger on Google

  • Able Danger Blog: April 2000 deletion was not the end
    he no longer works there asking him what he knew Never interviewed Never had discussions Yet Doctor Bob Johnson was fully aware of the entire Able Danger operation and supported it His data was transferred back to SOCOM headquarters in Tampa where it may still be intact Contrary to what the Pentagon said in a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee one month ago A lawyer an intelligence officer for the Pentagon said that the reason the 2 5 terabytes of data was destroyed was because of a ninety day rule You had to remove data and destroy it if it possibly contained information about American persons not within ninety days and that was why it was destroyed That s a lie Doctor Bob Johnson when I met with him just a few short weeks ago said Curt I watched the hearings and I sat there and I was amused He said the lawyer for the Pentagon at the time was a guy named Richard Shiffrin He said I dealt with him all the time He said Shiffrin knew what we were doing in Garland Texas and Shiffrin said don t worry about the ninety day rule If you want to keep the information just sign a document but it in the file and you can keep it as long as you want So now we have Doctor Bob Johnson who ran the Garland data mining operation and who worked with Richard Shiffrin on a regular basis totally contradicting what the Pentagon said in the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing one month ago Doctor Bob Johnson told me the reason the Army wanted the material destroyed was because of a request that SOCOM had made to transferred that data down to Garland The Army didn t want Garland to have it And so within a matter of days they destroyed it This whole story needs this country to scream and shout to investigate it There are just too many unanswered questions Was the sharing of information with the FBI prevented because SOCOM was afraid all of their data would be deleted again if the FBI found out about it after LIWA Clearly Kleinsmith and Johnson don t agree but there is another important question we should be asking too Why was Able Danger finally shut down JD I guess more importantly Lt Col if we have the order of destruction for the information that we had who s responsible for shutting down Able Danger and dismantling the infrastructure to continue to get information on suspected terrorist cells organizations and connections AS That s a good question I don t actually know who that is I know that I know my part I was ordered out of the operation by a 2 star Army general named Rod Isler who came to the point where he was yelling at me demanding that I stop supporting this Each individual within the group had their own horror story at how we attempted to say look

  • Able Danger Blog: Did Post-Impeachment Hypersensitivity Cause the Termination of Able Danger?
    think our leads to Al Qaeda in Germany and the 9 11 plotters was probably lost due to the Clinton administration being shell shocked from the impeachment process As I pointed out here had Atta and company been pursued 9 11 would have in all likelihood been voided Mr Strata makes a good reasonable case Cross posted at QT Monster vadkins QT Monster Blog Home posted by vadkins 10 09 PM View our Able Danger timeline Read Tony Shaffer s testimony Listen to audio of the hearing Browse the hearing transcript Demand more news coverage Support a new investigation Add a banner to your site Disclaimer WWW Able Danger Blog About Us Vi is QT Monster Mike is TopDog08 Voxott is Voice of the Taciturn Email Us Contact at AbleDangerBlog Com Links Able Danger Overview Able Danger Twenty Questions Latest Able Danger Video Clips Able Danger Press Conference Able Danger Hearing Testimony Whistleblower Hearing Video Able Danger Timeline Able Danger on Google News Able Danger on Technorati Able Danger on Google Blogs Able Danger at Wikipedia Able Danger on CNN Congressman Curt Weldon Journalist Peter Lance Radiohost Dirk Thompson Intelligence Summit News Able Danger Video Links Able Danger Bloggers Related

  • Able Danger Blog: Shelton might be alluding to Stratus Ivy
    from the results of the Able Danger effort I m basing this on the detailed GSN Magazine interview with Shaffer GSN Even when a program is compartmented wouldn t the senior leadership on the civilian side know about it SHAFFER I cannot speak to that because I have no direct knowledge I only know from my direct knowledge that General Shelton was aware because of his tasking this to Special Operations Command I briefed him on another operation regarding the Internet and data and I referenced Able Danger to him because we were going to use the same Able Danger methodology to protect U S person issues I briefed General Shelton on that other operation in the spring 2001 timeframe before 9 11 So from my knowledge I believe he remembered Able Danger at that point in time because of the reference to this other operation However I don t know how far above him or laterally he shared information regarding Able Danger I don t know about the civilian leadership The highest level on the civilian side that I m directly knowledgeable of was that the assistant secretary of defense for special operations and low intensity conflict was aware because I briefed him on this Editor s Note Brian E Sheridan held that assistant secretary position at the time He received a briefing from me in 2000 on Stratus Ivy my unit and I gave him information on what we were doing for Able Danger His comment to me was You need to get on those guys and push them harder That was the way he told me to get on SOCOM to get them to push harder to get this going Here is the part about the FBI Keep in mind I had been asked to develop a parallel but different capability for the FBI on one of their terrorist targets overseas So at that point in time I was negotiating with the FBI about parameters and scope of support The same basic team that was doing the SOCOM stuff was going to be assembled to support the FBI mission as well That includes some of the same data miners the same technicians the same analysts Here is an excerpt about the CIA So one of the issues was we did not want to compete or be seen as competing with the CIA in what their mission was or what they were already assigned to do Within the first 30 days of Able Danger the operations officer that you now know as Navy Captain Scott Philpott asked me to go talk to the director of central intelligence rep at the Special Operations Command the DCI rep who represented CIA Director George Tenet there in the command My task was to explain to the rep that we re not competing with him and explain to him Able Danger Clearly this would be easier to figure out if we knew more about Stratus Ivy posted by Supporter 7 54 PM

  • Able Danger Blog: Mohamed Atta was only visible to "flakes"
    National Journal piece One senior IDC analyst Eileen Preisser who worked with Kleinsmith on Able Danger and other projects was characterized by a former Defense official as an uncontrolled flake Kleinsmith who called Preisser an analytical genius admitted that she has constant trouble in working with others in the community Preisser has worked in several intelligence jobs inside and outside the government and those who know her see her as the prototypical IDC believer She is especially critical of those folks who she feels did not or do not get the technology Kleinsmith said Instead of working within the system maneuvering around the tough spots negotiating and dealing she tends to burn her way through an issue to get where she needs to go Preisser now works for the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency A spokeswoman there said Preisser declined all requests for interviews Apparently if you thought Al Qaeda was operating here in the US before 9 11 you were by definition a flake in the eyes of any number of unnamed IC officials As Mac Ranger puts it Can t wait to see the FBI CIA response to Shelton s remarks No wait ex operatives speaking on condition of anonymity posted by Supporter 6 04 PM View our Able Danger timeline Read Tony Shaffer s testimony Listen to audio of the hearing Browse the hearing transcript Demand more news coverage Support a new investigation Add a banner to your site Disclaimer WWW Able Danger Blog About Us Vi is QT Monster Mike is TopDog08 Voxott is Voice of the Taciturn Email Us Contact at AbleDangerBlog Com Links Able Danger Overview Able Danger Twenty Questions Latest Able Danger Video Clips Able Danger Press Conference Able Danger Hearing Testimony Whistleblower Hearing Video Able Danger Timeline Able Danger on Google News Able

  • Able Danger Blog: Great article on the IDC
    that the IDC s methods caused some consternation but he takes pride in his former work and looks at the controversy pragmatically We understood that there were objections but we also understood that a lot of our customers didn t care Today Kleinsmith is still struggling with the same puzzles And to hear him tell it apart from the advancements in technology little has changed So much is still unknown and undone about the terrorist threat to the United States he said He can simply watch television to know that law enforcement isn t rounding up the terrorist cells he believes his team identified in the United States five years ago Ultimately Kleinsmith sounds less like a man burdened by his past than one nervous about the future No one seems to be acting on the information the IDC found that terrorists had taken up residence in the United States far from New York he said And as if they were listening waiting for him to tip his hand Kleinsmith cautiously added I d just prefer not to say where they are posted by Supporter 4 58 PM View our Able Danger timeline Read Tony Shaffer s testimony Listen to audio of the hearing Browse the hearing transcript Demand more news coverage Support a new investigation Add a banner to your site Disclaimer WWW Able Danger Blog About Us Vi is QT Monster Mike is TopDog08 Voxott is Voice of the Taciturn Email Us Contact at AbleDangerBlog Com Links Able Danger Overview Able Danger Twenty Questions Latest Able Danger Video Clips Able Danger Press Conference Able Danger Hearing Testimony Whistleblower Hearing Video Able Danger Timeline Able Danger on Google News Able Danger on Technorati Able Danger on Google Blogs Able Danger at Wikipedia Able Danger on CNN Congressman Curt Weldon

  • Able Danger Blog: Hugh Shelton on Able Danger
    up a team of five to seven intelligence officers after Shelton was promoted to chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in 1997 and Schoomaker succeeded him as Special Operations commander The program began at Special Operations headquarters at MacDill Air Force Base in Florida Shelton said but it was expanded later and moved to Fort Belvoir Va outside Washington Schoomaker briefed Shelton on the program s progress in late 1997 when Shelton made a return visit to his old command post in Florida In Washington sometime between 1999 and 2001 Shelton received a more extensive briefing from Defense Intelligence Agency officers involved in the program Read the whole thing Rosen points out several new details that do not match up with what we already knew but I think it is more a matter of filling in the blanks about different aspects not anything that contradicts what Shaffer has said The problem is that the program has a complex history which is hard to describe without oversimplifying and parts of it deal with other programs that are still classified posted by Supporter 10 40 PM View our Able Danger timeline Read Tony Shaffer s testimony Listen to audio of the hearing Browse the hearing transcript Demand more news coverage Support a new investigation Add a banner to your site Disclaimer WWW Able Danger Blog About Us Vi is QT Monster Mike is TopDog08 Voxott is Voice of the Taciturn Email Us Contact at AbleDangerBlog Com Links Able Danger Overview Able Danger Twenty Questions Latest Able Danger Video Clips Able Danger Press Conference Able Danger Hearing Testimony Whistleblower Hearing Video Able Danger Timeline Able Danger on Google News Able Danger on Technorati Able Danger on Google Blogs Able Danger at Wikipedia Able Danger on CNN Congressman Curt Weldon Journalist Peter Lance
