Alarming 9/11 Claim Is Found Baseless.

I am certainly no fan of Curt Weldon on many issues, but I always respected his efforts in investigating Able Danger, even if the left saw those efforts as an attempt to pin 9/11 on Bill Clinton. Now, the left can celebrate that Weldon's assertions had no merit, and the bipartisan coverups continue unabated.

Alarming 9/11 claim is found baseless
A military analysts' chart did not identify hijackers beforehand, senators report.

WASHINGTON — The Senate Intelligence Committee has rejected as untrue one of the most disturbing claims about the Sept. 11 terrorist strikes — a congressman's contention that a team of military analysts identified Mohamed Atta or other hijackers before the attacks — according to a summary of the panel's investigation obtained by The Times.

The conclusion contradicts assertions by Rep. Curt Weldon (R-Pa.) and a few military officers that U.S. national security officials ignored startling intelligence available in early 2001 that might have helped to prevent the attacks.,0,3149...

did anyone else notice

that it was John D. Rockefeller who dismissed the Able Danger story to the Senate Intelligence Committee? yeah...

Here is the letter I sent

Here is the letter I sent yesterday to the author of the article:

Dear Mr. Miller,

Regarding today's story on Able Danger: the account you were given is not possible. How were 15 of the 19 hijackers identified on the morning of September 11 per Richard Clarke's account? How was the list with photos assembled for the press by September 12 when no Arab names appeared on the flight manifests? Aside from the bag left by Atta and the magic passport that somehow survived the implosion of the jetliner intact, there has been no documentation provided that these men ever boarded the planes. (For that matter, were you aware that the BBC has reported that several of the alleged hijackers are alive -- and have been interviewed? If it is an issue of stolen identities, who were the actual perpetrators?)

There are many aspects of the 9/11 story which have fallen through the memory hole, particularly early accounts which have been modified to fit the administration's official version of events. I am not in any way a fan of Weldon, but I find it highly suspicious that a Republican was smeared by a Republican-led Justice Dept. just before an election, and for reasons that don't reach the level of unusual corruption for this Congress. I have to wonder if the seizure of his computers at home and at the office were a means of deep-sixing his Able Danger evidence.

If you care about historical integrity on this issue, I highly recommend you go to the Center for Cooperative Research website, where Paul Thompson's complete 9/11 timeline has collected hundreds of mainstream news sources on both Able Danger and the identification of the hijackers. I think you will find that the evolution of the story suggests something different from that supplied by your sources for today's story.
