Key Points About "Able Danger"

1) It succesfully identified Atta and other 9/11 hijackers well before the attacks, and as non-citizens, these apparent terrorists should have been put in a special class

2) The "Able Danger" administrators tried to go to the FBI with the names of suspect terrorists, but were blocked by Pentagon lawyers (apparently)

3) Someone in the Defense Department apparently put Atta in the protected category of US citizen/permanent resident-- WHY????

4) The program identified Atta in the US several months before he officially entered the US. Isn't this a problem for the official 9/11 story?


5) The Clinton administration did not seem to have trouble with this program.

6) There is a strong sense that most people in Washington would just like to see this story "go away" (hmmm, why would that be?)

Another point the Shaffer seems to make in an interview on CBS is that these "lawyers" have


"...the lawyers didn't allow us to properly go after either by intelligence collection or by [...] to go out, to look at these guys..."

So not only did AD had problems transfering their intel to FBI, but they had also interference from these "lawyers" in their regular operations.

Other questions, is the military supposed to conduct such tasks on American soil? Shouldn't the FBI be the first to be into these kind of investigations? After seeing these news reports about hijackers possibly training at Army airbases, and how there was so many military drills on 9/11 and now, how Able Danger first saw these guys in USA (instead of the FBI), was AD the team that actually set up the "parralel drill" (real thing) ?
