  • Able Danger Blog: The Path from 9/11
    all the media attention attention still must be paid Attention first to the families our touchstones who suffered more than any and who still seek deliverance from that suffering in their unending search for the truth of what happened Attention next to the many questions about 9 11 that remain unanswered questions large and small new and old such as why the Pentagon held back so much information about air defense deficiencies from the 9 11 commission that Chairmen Kean and Hamilton came close to asking the Justice Department to launch a criminal investigation such as why the dozens of pre attack warnings pouring into Washington were ignored such as why the Able Danger intelligence program which purportedly uncovered evidence of five active Al Qaeda cells and identified four of the eventual hijackers months before the attacks was ignored and closed down such as why Osama bin Laden was allowed to escape from Afghanistan when cornered in Tora Bora such as why evidence of Pakistani intelligence involvement in the 9 11 plot has been ignored and covered up Attention fully paid then to press for truth the title of another 9 11 related documentary I am an executive producer of about what actually happened how it happened and who helped make it happen as a means of finally approaching the reality of why it happened and perhaps in the course of that search ensuring that it can never happen again A logical starting point and something that some family members spoke out for at a recent press conference in Washington DC is to support calls for a new reopened and non partisan investigation There is little doubt that that the 9 11 commission report has become the Warren commission report of our time a fatally flawed official examination that ended up raising more questions than it answered owing to a toxic brew of politics partisanship personal agendas and presidential obstruction Chairman Thomas Kean s recent paid involvement with ABC s fictitious historical docudrama is but the latest reminder that the 9 11 tragedy has yet to be investigated fully or fairly or in a NON partisan as opposed to BI partisan manner Both Kean and his Democratic Party counterpart Lee Hamilton now acknowledge that the Pentagon didn t play straight with them and that they and their fellow commissioners bowed to political pressure when they didn t fully question New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani about his management decisions and emergency responses Other commissioners complained repeatedly about White House obstacles put in their path yet the commissioners chose to issue their report nonetheless even in the face of staff objections that there wasn t enough time to follow all leads The commissioners also allowed the president and vice president to testify together and not under oath and went along with other administration demands such as the one that only a minority of the commissioners could see a minority of the documents requested and even then had to vet their notes with

    were issued by both Able Danger and Kie Fallis at DIA prior to the bombing that were never forwarded These topics may be more taboo with some in the USG than they are in Yemen These issues were completely ignored by the both the congressional investigation into the Cole and the 9 11 commission report The commission got the information late they say after the book was already going to print Senator Werner s suggestion to reopen the investigation to reexamine the decisions of the Commander Lippold the ships commander is off the mark Several areas of the Cole bombing should be reexamined and none of them have to do with Lippold The way in which the FBI s Cole investigation was stymied to a greater or lesser degree under her watch is an appropriate subject for the CBS documentary Ms Bodne s goal of honor those killed by finding those guilty has not been fulfilled when several Cole bombers have been found time and time again and yet are free today This is no myth Its an outrage You can read what Bodine has to say here but I m not going to bother quoting her posted by Supporter 5 21 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

  • Able Danger Blog: Capitalizing on the 9/11 tragedy?
    of U S links with Saudi Arabia These were and are 9 11 truths whose emergence is important and has occurred or will take place largely as a result of public pressure not least that of the seekers My problems with the conspiracy theories are different One is a question of focus the other more political In terms of focus the 9 11 Truth Movement has largely steered clear of such outlandish attributions as to the Elders of Zion and they do aim properly at the Bush administration But the theories largely postulate that the Bush White House either made 9 11 happen or this president knew all about what impended and let 9 11 happen Neither is likely in my view There is no doubt that the events of 9 11 flowed from an immense chain of actions in many places by a host of actors Orchestrating all this activity implies a level of skill that just does not track with the Bush administration s demonstrated incompetence in Iraq Afghanistan Israeli Palestinian matters on selling democracy in the Middle East on detention and torture domestic wiretapping actually finding Osama bin Laden and on so much else What the Bushies were good at was at capitalizing on the 9 11 tragedy to push their domestic and foreign policy agendas posted by Supporter 10 54 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

  • Able Danger Blog: Five Years Later
    recognize that privacy in the information age is a fleeting thing We do not have real privacy laws in this country we have laws that attempt to make us whole after our personal information has been abused People think nothing of turning over private information to save a few pennies on gas or dog food but heaven forbid the government sort through that same data to keep us safe Remember that any of the enemies among us aren t living in a cave they use the same credit cards shop at the same stores and use the same Internet we do No one proposes a crude rifling of office files or rummaging through personal lives Data mining exploits information at the aggregate level searching out suspicious patterns of activity in trillions of anonymous transactions This is not surveillance no conversation is listened to or recorded no one is watched and the effort to use it to foil terrorists and save lives is justified Regrettably we may have to relearn the lessons of five years ago As long as we continue to engage in mere quasi war another attack on our homeland remains a real possibility If we are going to avoid that eventuality we need to change We need to forge a culture of courage clarity and forthrightness in dealing with threats to our national security posted by Supporter 9 52 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

  • Able Danger Blog: Review of "9/11: Press for Truth"
    morning of 9 11 through the process of calling for an independent commision and ultimately to loosing all faith in the same commission While they did not have time to cover Able Danger which could fill a documentary in its own right they do make several important points The first is that the only people who seemed to care about investigating 9 11 were families of the victims The mainstream press failed miserably and this films shows how The only reason the media covered their call for an independent investigation at all was because the press was determined to show every single ounce of their suffering Emotion sells The 9 11 families knew this and resigned themselves to it They stepped up to the podium witness table or television studio to make their voices heard The least we can do is hear them out and answer their call for help This movie does Some of the most powerful lines in the movie are from women who lost their husbands on 9 11 Those who became known as The Jersey Girls are featured prominently in the film Here are some of their quotes Lorie Van Auken On 9 11 the media started out by doing it s job and somehow got waylaid and stopped doing its job It began reporting soley on the administration and the governments activities Monica Gabrielle The one thing that I personally was hoping for was another Woodward and Bernstein with regard to 9 11 Someone anyone that was willing to put their teeth into this Kristen Breitweiser If the public was better informed in the summer of 2001 lives would have been saved maybe the attacks wouldn t have been prevented but lives would have been saved My husband was in Tower Two If he knew that it was a terrorist attack he wouldn t have stayed in the building Mindy Kleinberg The 9 11 terrorists were not just lucky once they were lucky over and over again When you have this repeated pattern of broken protocols broken laws broken communication one can not still call it luck If at some point we don t look to hold the individuals accountable for not doing their jobs properly then how can we ever expect a terrorist to not get lucky again Veteran CIA analyst Ray McGovern The whole mystique of intelligence is that you acquire this very valueable information covertly but the truth be told about eighty percent eight zero of any of the information that one needs is available in open source materials Internet researcher Paul Thompson As I began researching I noticed this curious phenomenon which is that there is a lot of information that comes out in the main stream press but it comes out buried As a casual observer of the news I d never noticed any of this stuff Even if you don t live in a city where the movie is airing check out the trailer review the timeline and consider
