Part 1

Team8plus is aware of the political spin and abuse of the recent mainstream reports about "Able Danger".

However, we are also aware, that most of the alleged 9/11 suspects had INDEED been under observation.

In how far "Able Danger" played into these observation teams or not (or is a carefully designed distraction), should be part of a fair and honest investigation, and separated from the political spin of "negligence" and "protection of Homeland".

To begin with, here are some articles, which might show us a little bit more about how Curt Weldon could have been used as a propaganda tool:

August 12, 2005 issue of Executive Intelligence Review.

"...In April 2005, Regnery Publishing, Inc. released another fractured-fairy-tale propaganda piece, promoting pre-emptive war on Iran, this one by Rep. Curt Weldon (R-Pa.).

Sources familiar with the book report that Weldon was snookered by ex-CIA Director and leading neo-con war party operative James Woolsey, and self-proclaimed "universal fascist" Michael Ledeen, into buying fake intelligence, pushed through a former Iranian minister under the Shah, who has more recently been a business partner of discredited Iran-Contra gun dealer Manucher Ghorbanifar.

Representative Weldon concealed the identity of his high-level "source," referring to him only as "Ali." But "Ali" was soon identified as Fereidoun Mahdavi, a former commerce minister, who fled Iran shortly after the 1979 Islamic Revolution, and never looked back...."

Reports: 9/11 clue hid in Tampa

"... Weldon said a secret military unit known as "Able Danger" discovered a year before the attacks that ringleader Mohammed Atta and three other future hijackers were in the United States.

Weldon said the unit - created at SOCom under a classified directive in 1999 to take out al-Qaida targets - identified Atta and the others as likely members of the organization.

In fall 2000, the unit recommended SOCom share the information with the FBI, Weldon said in an interview Tuesday.

But lawyers at either the Pentagon or SOCom determined the men were in the country legally, Weldon said. He said he based his information on intelligence sources.

When members of Able Danger made their presentation at command headquarters at MacDill Air Force Base, Weldon said, the legal team "put stickies on the faces of Mohammed Atta on the chart," to reinforce that he was off-limits.

"They said, "You can't talk to Atta because he's here on a green card,"...

... A former spokesman for the Sept. 11 Commission said that members of its staff were told about the program but that the briefers did not mention Atta's name. The commission report produced last year did not mention Able Danger's findings.

On Tuesday, commission co-chairman Lee Hamilton said that Weldon's information, which the congressman said came from multiple intelligence sources, warrants a review.

He said he hoped the panel could issue a statement on its findings by the end of the week.

"The 9/11 Commission did not learn of any U.S. government knowledge prior to 9/11 of surveillance of Mohammed Atta or of his cell," said Hamilton, a former Democratic congressman from Indiana. "Had we learned of it obviously it would have been a major focus of our investigation."..."

"The 9/11 Commission did not learn of any U.S. government knowledge prior to 9/11 of surveillance of Mohammed Atta or of his cell," said Hamilton, a former Democratic congressman from Indiana. "Had we learned of it obviously it would have been a major focus of our investigation."

At least two congressional committees have begun looking into the episode.

Rep. C.W. Bill Young, chairman of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, said he, too, had asked the Pentagon for information about the Able Danger program.

The Indian Shores Republican said that in hindsight, it was easy to say that one thing or another could have disrupted the hijackers.

"There should have been better sharing of information," he said.

Young said that passage of the Patriot Act and appointment of John Negroponte as intelligence czar, which gives one person access to all information generated by the intelligence community, would help resolve future problems.

"The tools weren't as good then as they are today," Young said.

Sounding agitated by what he perceived as a missed opportunity, Weldon made a distinction between the military lawyers and Special Operations Forces, whom he praised. Gen. Pete Schoomaker, the Army chief of staff, was SOCom commander at the time.

The small military unit developed the information using mostly open sources, not classified channels, Weldon said.

Weldon revealed the Able Danger findings in a little-noticed speech on the floor of the House in June. On Monday, Government Security News, a biweekly publication that covers homeland security, published a cover story on the subject, generating another article in the New York Times.

Until now, Atta had not been identified publicly as a threat to the United States before the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.

According to Weldon, the military unit identified a terrorist cell in Brooklyn, N.Y., in September 2000.

The individuals identified as members of the cell were Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi, Khalid Almihdhar and Nawaf Alhamzi.

In late 1999 or 2000, the CIA had identified Almihdhar and Alhamzi as terrorist members who might be involved in a terrorist operation.

The duo arrived in Los Angeles in early 2000, but the FBI was not warned about them until spring 2001. No efforts were made to track them until a month before the terrorist attacks.

In the article published by Government Security News, a former defense intelligence official who worked with Able Danger said he alerted SOCom about the unit's findings. The publication said it interviewed the source in Weldon's office...."

NOTE: The following postings (incl. sources) might show, how significant it is to distinguish between "9/11 plotline" and "military operation" of 9/11.

"Able Danger", whether it's based on half fake info or not, proves exactly what all 9/11-patsie researchers, including me, already wrote between 2002 and 2004.

POINT 1: The patsies are leading to the real perpetrators of 9/11!

POINT 2: They all got observed.

There are confirmed names of at least 5 informants
Whether "Able Danger" was yet another observing team, is therefore already irrelevant but has to be investigated.

POINT 3: The final military operation was planned since 1998, many significant developments of that year point strongly on that.


POINT 4: Whether with Clinton's active or passive knowledge (or by deception), the Clinton admin logistically prepared or allow the PRE 9/11 homeland security, created by ANSER and some other important logistical tools and laws.

An anti-paranoia spin on research facts is counterproductive IMO.

POINT 5: Hugh Shelton obviously worked close with the real perpetrators of 9/11, because he was involved in the pre-planning of the invasion into Afghanistan. After he "retired", some months later, he 'fell' from a ladder...

POINT 6: The coincidental significance ("Able Danger") of the tampa connection is also important, coz that's the air base, where they planned the final invasion of Afghanistan (Charles Holland) and flew out some bin laden familiy members....

POINT 7: Atta was already tracked by german intel since 1998. In 1999, german CIA officer Thomas Volz tried to hire Atta's buddy Marmoun Darkanzali as an informant, who was close to some fake-recruiters in europe...

POINT 8: One can be sure, that the so called 4 ringleaders had been under
the control from the real perpetrators of 9/11 and they made sure, that these 4 patsie leaders won't be involved into the actual planning of 9/11 itself.

I will back up ALL points ASAP.
