Able Danger Update VI

Will they or won't they? That is the question. On Tuesday, September, 20, five members of the Able Danger intelligence team were ordered by the Pentagon not to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. On Friday the 23rd, however, it was reported that the Pentagon had reversed its decision, and committe chairman Arlen Specter announced new hearings for October 5th.

Now, it seems that those hearings have been postponed. The official reason for the postponement is the Rosh Hashanah observances, which begin on Monday, October 3rd. However, Mark Zaid, attorney for Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer, who was scheduled to testify, claims that the real reason for the postponement is that the Department of Defense is not cooperating, and a pentagon spokesman has confirmed that the DOD has not agreed to allow the hearing.

So, will they testify, or will they not?

Stay tuned...
