Operation Able Danger Cover-up

Analysts associated with the secretive Able Danger program, including Army Reserve Lieutenant Colonel Anthony Shaffer and Navy Captain Scott Phillpott, say they identified Mohamed Atta and three other 9/11 hijackers a year before the Al Qaeda-connected terror attacks on America. They also say their team passed on warnings to high officials at both Special Operations Command (SOCOM) and Central Command (CENTCOM). about al Qaeda activity in Aden before the attack on the USS Cole, which killed seventeen and injured thirty nine. Congressman Curt Weldon says, “At a minimum, this is a case of gross incompetence. At maximum, it’s a cover up bigger than Watergate. And this doesn’t concern some third-rate burglary. It’s about the biggest attack against this country in history, one that killed nearly three thousand people!”

Former FBI Director Louis Freeh stated: “We have now very honorable military officers telling the United States, that in 2000, not only had Mohamed Atta had been identified by photo and name but was earmarked as an al-Qa’ida operative in the United States. Apparently this information was brought to the 9/11 Commission prior to their report. There’s no reference to it. That’s the kind of tactical intelligence that would make a difference in stopping a hijacking… We’re very interested in what the 9/11 Commission didn’t do with respect to Able Danger.”
