Inquiring Minds Want To Know

Published by at 12:18 am under Able Danger/9-11,All General Discussions

Many are requesteding for the US to come clean on Able Danger:

On Friday, Rep. Curt Weldon, R-Pa., sent Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld a letter signed by a bipartisan group of 246 lawmakers demanding that the program’s officers and contractors be allowed to testify in open congressional hearings.

“Further refusal … can only lead us to conclude that the Department of Defense is uncomfortable with the prospect of members of Congress questioning these individuals about the circumstances surrounding Able Danger,” the letter said. “This would suggest not a concern for national security, but rather an attempt to prevent potentially embarrassing facts from coming to light.”

And the Jersey Girls spoke up again as well:

Kristin Breitweiser, a New Jersey woman whose husband died in the World Trade Center during the attacks, said she and other relatives of some of the 2,986 Sept. 11 victims have met with the military officers who worked on Able Danger. The Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency ended the computer-data-mining operation in early 2001.

“It’s very upsetting to hear people tell you that your husband and the father of your children didn’t have to die, because we had information to stop the attacks,” Breitweiser said in an interview.

Time to explain to America what happened, and let the chips fall where they may.

  1. Will we ever get the truth about Able Danger?

    Captain’s Quarters has been all over this story for weeks, but it’s interesting to see the MSM finally starting to notice it: What did U.S. military know before 9/11? Congress wants to hear more about allegations that four hijackers

    I was watching FOX NEWS and it said that the Pentagon is being given expanded powers to do domestic criminal investigations of Americans who are suspected of being terrorists. These are criminal investigations that would let them arrest people, etc.

    I think this is what I heard, but will listen for the story to recycle.

    I am making my list, and it’s not going to the North Pole this year.
    It’s going to the Pentagon. Woo-Hoo!

    I posted about this a few minutes ago on an Able Danger thread, but now you have a new one.

    I don’t know, but I suspect that this is the Able Danger submarine surfacing.

    Even if it was destroyed, I bet it was reconstituted.

    Look at my other post on the older AD thread for details.

    Maybe you can find out more about this new Pentagon policy and start a thread.

    If you go to Google, click on “News,” type in “Able Danger,” and click on the “sort by date” you will get a lot of really dumb conspiracy theories about 9-11.

    These conspiracy/radical sites are trying to make it seem like probing Able Danger would uncover government complicity in 9-11.

    They do seem to want to “spin” this story their way, so perhaps they are scared of what Able Danger might really reveal—perhaps Iraqi collusion in 9-11.

    I think that should just stay quiet so the government can use the information against the terrorists.

    This information can be used to identify people who then can be watched and perhaps even targeted by “stings.” This way, the terrorists can go to prison, but the intelligence information can stay protected.

    A lot of you are sure posting very complicated information about the Niger Story, Able Danger, Atta in Prague, and so on. This is a very smart group of people.

    It’s a lot to absorb.

  4. More coverage of Able Danger

    James Rosen has two separate Able Danger stories out this weekend. In case you were wondering, the same company owns both papers. Here is the article for the Sacramento Bee:

    It’s either the grandest conspiracy since the JFK assassination and the g…
