War, Peace, Sharks and Vacation

The entire main stream media, minus those right wing fanatics at Fox, continue to ignore the Able Danger scandal.

Third Source Backs 'Able Danger' Claims About Atta

A third person has now come forward to verify claims made by a military intelligence unit that a year before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, it had information showing that lead hijacker Mohamed Atta and other terrorists were identified as being in the United States.

"This story needs to be told. The American people need to be told what could have been done to prevent 3,000 people from losing their lives," Weldon told FOX News this week.

Weldon added that at least five people on the federal payroll will testify under oath about the validity of the Able Danger intelligence.

"When this is over, the Sept. 11 commission is going to have egg all over their face," he said.

There are a few other stories about recriminations within the CIA over 9/11 failures, but none mention Able Danger. George Tenet may have to fall on his sword it seems. In the mean time, the non-story of Cindy Sheehan dominates the main stream tabloid media.

Dragging this further into the gutter is Al Sharpton, who is going to join the love fest with Joe Wilson and Joan Baez. The only thing that might make this worse would be for one of the Baldwins to chime in.

I missed this shark attack as it was originally reported four days prior to the beginning of my shark drama documentation efforts. For the purposes of this blog, we will refer to this as Shark Attack #2.

I saw a wreck on I-95 north yesterday that was more dramatic than this. In any case, I will be off looking for sharks for the next 5 days near the coast. It is a rare event, as documented yesterday, where I might find one in DC, so I am heading to greener pastures. In any case, hold down the fort you extremists as I shall re-enter the fray next week. Peace. War. Victory!
