Able Danger in the News Again

First we find out that the DoD intelligence unit, Able Danger, had discovered Mohammad Atta and his cell one year before the 9-11 attacks. Then we find out that Able Danger learned of a possible attack in Yemen two weeks and two days before the attack on the USS Cole. The Navy had been told about the activity and was warned not to enter the port. Here is an interview with Congressman Curt Weldon (Pa).

So, Lt Col Schaffer is being threatened by his employer's for whistle-blowing, Weldon is being threatened with the loss of military-pork money, and the msm ignores the story. The msm is being left out in the cold and they appear to be completely oblivious to the fact that too many people now know about it. Why isn't Barbara Walters doing an exclusive interview with the families of the servicemen who who died on the Cole? Why isn't Katie Couric dragging in survivor's of the 9-11 attacks and asking them how they feel about the knowledge that the DoD and the Clinton Administration knew who the hijackers were a year before the attack?

There is a scene in Monty Python's Meaning of Life where John Cleese carries on tirelessly over a list of trivial announcements to his students at a boarding school. Immediately after dismissing his students, he calls out to one boy and shouts, "Oh, and (Jeremy)? Apparently your mother died". He then closes his book and walks away, leaving the boy on the verge of tears. It was hilarious in the movie, but this is the kind of dismissal we are currently experiencing from the msm...and it ain't so funny.

The scandal which is brewing, and the potential scandal (were we manipulated into a War on Terrorism?) is considerably bigger that Iran-Contra, and it blows the water out of Watergate. Why haven't the networks pre-empted regular programming to televise Senate hearings? I, for one, wouldn't mind seeing Arlen "Single Bullet" Spector squirm in his seat for a couple of weeks.

I want to know who is being protected by the msm silence. Could they be so partisan that being silent on a story of this magnitude is the best way to protect the Clinton Administration? I really don't have any other explanation for it. We continue to get story after story about Tom Delay, and nothing about Congressman Weldon accusing DoD bureaucrats of punishing a whistle-blower. Let me repeat this again for impact: We knew who the hijackers were before the attacks.

Supporters of Bill Clinton think that if they just keep quiet long enough, that the story will just go away. Ironically, this appears to be exactly what the evil, military-industrial-complex wants to happen.

I too wish this would be covered Plumber. On the whole, I supported Clinton, but I wouldn't want him protected over something like this, if the allegations are true.

I mean, the media didn't protect him over Monicagate (or wait - is that because it was so utterly ridiculous?)

Maybe it will be uncovered yet, we can only hope. In the meantime, why don't you write to your congressman? I mean, I rarely get any satisfaction when I do that, but hey, it is something.

I wrote Musgrave, Allard, and Salazar over two months ago and got back similar responses from all..."there are ongoing investigations in this or that committee...blah, blah, blah".

I will write again.

Yeah, I've received those blah, blah, blah responses. And NOW I am on Musgrave's email mailing list, and cannot for the life of me get off it.
