Senate Report, Able Danger did not identify 9/11 hijackers prior to 9/11

Over the last few years some of the most extreme right-wingers attempted to blame 9/11 on Clinton. The righties were particularly fond of citing Able Danger, a classified military intelligence program under the command of the U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM). They repeatedly claimed that Mr. Clinton ignored “startling intelligence” that might have helped to prevent the attacks. Well, as usual, the righties are flat out wrong. From a new Senate report:

The Senate Intelligence Committee has rejected as untrue one of the most disturbing claims about the Sept. 11 terrorist strikes — a congressman’s contention that a team of military analysts identified Mohamed Atta or other hijackers before the attacks — according to a summary of the panel’s investigation obtained by The Times.

After a 16-month investigation, the Intelligence Committee has concluded that those assertions are unfounded.

“Able Danger did not identify Mohammed Atta or any other 9/11 hijacker at any time prior to Sept. 11, 2001,” the committee determined, according to an eight-page letter sent last week to panel members by the top Republican and Democrat on the committee.

Poor, poor, Sean Hannity, one could only wonder how he’s going to take this latest defeat. And, how will he spin this latest news and attempt to continue to blame Mr. Clinton? 2007 is going to be a great year for Freedom and Democracy.

    What I find interesting, is that just before this claim is debunked the FBI was sent after Curt Weldon, the Rep that was pushing so hard to reveal Able Danger.Wonder if this has anything to do with it!

    being on the right means being on the wrong side of every issue.I’ve been saying that exact same things for years. It’s amazing, these “people” are never correct on ANYTHING. Really, how can a group of “people” continue to exist even though they are continually wrong on every single issue? They are an embarrassment.

    Quick! Call uber-cancervative asshole, Sean Hannity. Demand he apologize to Bill Clinton and America. As stated, being on the right means being on the wrong side of every issue.
