Able Danger Update III

I finished my September 2nd "Able Danger Update II" with the words "Stay turned..."

O.K., here goes. According to an Associated Press story released today, Congressman Curt Weldon, R-PA claims that a Pentagon employee was ordered to destroy 2.5 terabytes of documents that identified Mohammed Atta as part of a terrorist cell operating in New York nearly two years before the 9-11 terrorist attacks. The report further states that the unnamed employee is "prepared to testify next week before the Senate Judiciary Committee and was expected to name the person who ordered him to destroy the large volume of documents."

Now, I don't know much about computers, but 2.5 terabytes of documents sounds like a lot to me! It also sounds like Congressman Weldon is putting his career and reputation on the line for this story. I have a feeling there just might be something to it.

Stay tuned...

A tetrabyte is a thousand million bytes, or a thousand giga bytes.

And I will stay tuned. Who would best benefit from the destruction of this data, Bryan?

I think the Bill Clinton legacy and the legitimacy of the 9-11 Commission are both at stake. We all remember the left blaming Bush for allowing 9-11 to happen, yet Able Danger identified Atta during Clinton's term and nothing was done.

The wall restricting the sharing of information between intelligence and law enforcement is said to have been constructed by Clinton administration deputy attorney general Jamie Gorelick. Gorelick was also a 9-11 Commission member, and the Commission makes no mention of Able Danger in its final report.

It just seems to me that Clinton and his cronies have a lot at stake here. What do you think?

By the way, thanks for your continued readership of my blog.
