Able Danger Hearings Part I

Published by at 9:38 pm under Able Danger/9-11,All General Discussions

Folks, I know a lot of you are awaiting my comments on the Able Danger hearings today – which unfortunately got cut short. I worked late and do not have time to get through the audio files at QT Monsters. A quick scan at the liveblogging at QT Monster and Able Danger Blog indicates there are some new nuggets of information, but probably not the answers to my questions I posted yesterday.

Top Dog did point me to one of his posts from November on a key person to watch: Mike Ewing who was the Deputy Director of DIA during Able Danger in 2002 and when Shaffer’s Able Danger data went missing in 2003-2004.

Again, I am not saying Ewing did anything wrong, but he should be testifying.

There are a couple hours of audio to go through – so please be patient and I will get to them as soon as possible. I still have a day job!

    I read all comments. Having time to answer them is a whole different question!

    I also hold onto leads to work later.

    Cheers, AJStrata

You may want to check out Part I (which has nothing in it really) and Part II (which takes us through Cambone’s opening statement). As before, I am listening to part 1 of the hearings at QT Monster. As context I will use the post QT liveblogged as a reference. […]
