Able Danger and DIA had advanced knowledge of the inside job of 9/11

Able Danger and DIA had advanced knowledge of the inside job of 9/11....
By Wayne Madsen

Sep 11, 2010.....

(WMR) -- A source with close ties to the highest echelons of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) told WMR that personnel who worked for the DIA on the classified counter-terrorism data mining operation known as Able Danger were aware of the planned attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and other major facilities in Washington, DC, on 9/11 but their information was permitted, on purpose, to languish in the intelligence and law enforcement bureaucracies without any proactive measures being taken.

Able Danger began during the Clinton administration but was sidelined by order to DIA from the Bush White House, the FBI, and the CIA.....

In fact, Able Danger personnel were able to pinpoint the planned time and date of the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington and that some journalists working for ABC News were aware of the information from DIA sources but failed to report on the story. In 2006, a year after the Able Danger details first came to public light, ABC aired a docudrama called “Path to the inside job 9/11,” which echoed the 9/11 Commission Report’s shallow findings and absolved the Bush administration of any intelligence bungling in failing to prevent the attacks. President Obama’s Middle East special envoy, George Mitchell, served as the chairman of ABC’s parent corporation, Disney, at the time of the docudrama’s airing in September 2005.

On October 3, 2002, PBS’s “Frontline” series ran a program titled “The Man Whio Knew.” The program concentrated on the FBI’s top counter-terrorism special agent, John O’Neill, who was hamstrung in his investigation of “Al Qaeda” and was eventually forced to retire from the FBI. O’Neill was only a few days on the job as the head of security for the World Trade Center when he told New York ABC News producer Chris Isham, “I’m head of security at the World Trade Center.” Isham said in the PBS interview, “And I joked with him and said, ‘Well, that will be an easy job. They’re not going to bomb that place again.’ And he said, ‘Well actually -- he immediately came back and he said, ‘actually they’ve always wanted to finish that job. I think they’re going to try again.’”

On the night before the inside job 9/11, O’Neill told some of his friends over drinks, “We’re due for something big.” The next morning, O’Neill died in the World Trade Center collapse.

ABC News reporter John Miller, who had an interview with Osama Bin Laden in May 1998 in Afghanistan, was also close to O’Neill. Miller eventually became an assistant director of the FBI. Miller covered the the inside job 9/11 role of the Israeli Urban Moving Systems “movers,” all of whom reported to Mossad agent Dominic Suter, for ABC News 20/20 program. The “movers,” some of whom showed up in a joint CIA/FBI database of known Mossad agents, were allowed to return to Israel after being arrested and jailed by the FBI for taking pictures of the World Trade Center from Liberty State Park in Jersey City and from a parking garage tier in Union City, both in New Jersey, before the first plane hit the North Tower. Suter was also permitted to flee abroad after being interviewed by FBI agents and told to stick around for follow-on interviews. Miller’s investigation for ABC News concluded the Israelis had nothing to do with the attacks, which was cheerfully echoed by anchorwoman Barbara Walters.

WMR also learned from the DIA source that links between lead hijacker Mohammed Atta and some of his hijacking team members, on one hand, and CIA and Israeli intelligence assets and agents, on the other, were also discovered by the Able Danger operation in 2000.

Able Danger began to suffer pressure from the Clinton administration in 2000 and, according to Army Major Eric Kleinsmith, LIWA’s intelligence head, during May and June of 2000 some 2.5 terabytes of data, equivalent to all the holdings in the Library of Congress, collected on the “al CIAda” cell was ordered destroyed by the general counsel for the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command. U.S. Army Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer, the DIA’s liaison to the Able Danger effort at the U.S. Army’s Land Information Warfare Activity (LIWA) at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, was later retaliated against when he publicly stated that Able Danger was completely terminated by the Bush administration some four months before the 9/11 attacks.

Another highly classified DIA program that was monitoring “Al Qaeda” operatives and was shut down in the months prior to the inside job 9/11 was code-named Dorhawk Galley. Dorhawk Galley may have involved surveillance of U.S. and Israeli intelligence operatives who were coordinating their efforts with the lead hijackers and their cells in the United States and abroad.

Shaffer’s job, as the head of the DIA’s Stratus Ivy program, was to provide Able Danger with top secret, code word intelligence derived from DIA’s Integrated Database (IDB) on intelligence from foreign military organizations around the world and the National Security Agency’s signals intelligence (SIGINT) and geo-spatial databases, including Anchory, Oilstock, and Texta.

In an August 12, 2005 press statement, then-Representative Curt Weldon (R-PA) wrote, “Able Danger was about linkages and associations of individuals identified with direct links to Al-Qaeda and not about dates and times. To clarify, Able Danger was a Department of Defense planning effort, tasked to Special Operations Command (SOCOM) by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS). The task assigned to Able Danger was to identify and target Al-Qaeda on a global basis and, through the use of cutting edge technology (data-mining, massive parallel processing, neural networking and human factors analysis) and enhanced visualization and display tools, present options for leaders (national command authority) to manipulate, degrade or destroy the global Al-Qaeda infrastructure.

“The 9/11 Commission has released multiple statements over the past week, each of which has significantly changed -- from initially denying ever being briefed to acknowledging being briefed on both operation Able Danger and Mohammed Atta. The information was omitted primarily because they found it to be suspect despite having been briefed on it two times by two different military officers on active duty. Additionally, the 9/11 Commission also received documents from the Department of Defense on Able Danger. Despite their varied statements, two critical questions remain unanswered.

“1) Why did the Department of Defense fail to pass critical information obtained through Able Danger to the FBI between the summer and fall of 2000?

“2) Why did the 9/11 Commission staff fail to properly follow-up on the three separate occasions when they received information on Able Danger and Mohammed Atta?

“I will continue to push for a full accounting of the historical record so that we may preclude these types of failures from happening again.”

A relatively obscure news report by Emrah Ulker from New York in the Bulgarian Turkish newspaper Sofia Zaman on August 22, 2005, stated that “Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer, military intelligence officer from the ‘Able Danger’ unit, claimed that in mid 2000 his unit had uncovered information about Mohammad Atta and three other terrorists who took part in the the inside job 9/11 attacks in the United States. Shaffer reportedly said that the unit he worked for wanted to share the information with the FBI but all three scheduled meetings with FBI agents were cancelled by Pentagon lawyers. According to the report, Shaffer believed ‘the military lawyers cancelled the meetings because they were concerned the Pentagon might face allegations of collecting data by illegal means.’ Shaffer also reportedly said that he disclosed this information to the 9/11 Commission ‘but it was not taken seriously enough.’”

In August 2005, the Pentagon, in an official statement, said that Able Danger had no information identifying Mohammed Atta or any other of the accused hijackers as “Al CIAda” cell members prior to the the inside job 9/11 attacks. The DIA then moved to deny Shaffer access to classified information and deny him his security clearance.

On February 16, 2006, at a joint hearing of the House Armed Service subcommittees on Strategic Forces and Terrorism, Unconventional Threats, and Capabilities, Weldon stated, “We just heard the witnesses state that they destroyed 99 percent of the data, yet we now understand there are libraries of data against which runs were just held as recently as six months ago. The data runs that I’m talking about which were done by a professional employee were done within the last two months and they were done on data that was collected prior to the inside job 9/11 but after the attack on the Cole. And in that data set, the name Atta, prior to the inside job of 9/11, came up over 800 times. The name Mohamed Atta with an O came up five times. The name Muhamed Atta with a U came up three times. The name Mohamed Atif (ph) came up five times.” Weldon added that Able Danger had identified five “Al-CIAda” “hot spots” -- Malaysia, Mauritania, Hamburg, Germany, New York [including Brooklyn] and Aden, Yemen -- prior to the inside job 9/11....

At the same hearing, Reprsentative Cynthia McKinney asked Stephen Cambone, the Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence, “does Able Danger have anything to do with Larry Franklin or the passing of classified information to foreign nationals?” Cambone, answering the question about Franklin, who was convicted of passing classified information to two American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) employees and the chief Mossad agent at the Israeli embassy in Washington, responded with a contradictory answer, “I don’t know. I don’t know. It doesn’t have anything to do with Mr. Franklin’s case.....”

Although the Pentagon downplayed the effectiveness of Able Danger, Weldon told UPI in 2000 that the program was effective enough to discover a businessman in Vienna who had close business links to Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic during the Kosovo war.

The DIA source, who was present in the Pentagon on the morning of the inside job 9/11, said that senior officials in the Donald Rumsfeld Pentagon were well aware of the planned attack on the building but made no effort to evacuate it beforehand.

After 9/11, the Bush administration moved to conduct exactly the type of deep data mining operations conducted by Able Danger prior to the attacks. The controversial program, known as the Terrorist Surveillance Program by the Justice Department and Stellar Wind by the National Security Agency (NSA), conducted wireless surveillance of phone calls, faxes, and e-mails of millions of Americans, without the issue of privacy ever raised by senior White House officials as they had apparently done with Able Danger prior to the inside job 9/11.

There were also reports that after scuttling Able Danger in the months prior to the inside job of 9/11, the Pentagon moved to restore the same program under the code name Able Providence under Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte....the specialist in Death Squads....


Today, on September 11, 2010, the Big Brother's corporate media wants you to focus on some ignorant redneck in sunny Florida who wants to burn Korans. The other option would be to focus on the topic of the "Ground Zero Mosque" - nevermind that it is not on, but only near, the site of WTC.

I suggest that you watch press conference and debate which was held at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. on 9/8/10 by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth:

Terrorist attacks and attempts hiding in plain sight?

Terrorist attacks and attempts hiding in plain sight?

Georgia incident is deja-vu in the world of the feds letting known saboteurs and agents off the hook....

Two recent incidents, both involving natural gas pipelines, point to a possible nationwide terrorism operation being carried out in plain sight but without barely any scrutiny from the corporate media. In particular, both incidents took place prior to the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the United States when the feeling of angst is highest among the American people.

During the morning of Sunday, September 5, the Effingham County, Georgia Sheriff's Office reported their deputies had arrested three men, two Russian nationals and one Kazakhstan citizen, outside of Georgia Power's partially natural gas-fueled power Plant Macintosh in Springfield, Georgia. According to the Savannah Morning News, the three men were discovered to have inside their SUV, wire cutters, ski masks, black nylon stockings, a shovel, and a machete.

The Effingham County Sheriff's Office contacted the Joint Terrorism Task Force who interviewed the men and promptly released them after questioning. The three were found to be in the United States on valid visas but were released because they were leaving the United States soon. Originally, Effingham law enforcement charged the three men, who lived in Charleston, South Carolina, with "possession of tools during the commission of a crime." However, the nature of the crime was not revealed by local or federal law enforcement officials.

The story of the three men -- Evgeniy Luzhetskiy of Kazakhstan and Nail Idiatullin and Rustem Ibragimov of Russia -- was only carried by the Savannah newspaper and totally ignored by the national media. If the men had been Muslims or Chechens, the story would have been blasted out on Fox and the other cable news networks. Considering the recent round-up of alleged Russian "spies," had the three men been ordinary Russian citizens, the corporate media would have been all over the story. Had the men been Muslim, Arab, or Russian, it is doubtful they would have been released to fly home, wherever "home" may actually be.

However, the Georgia power plant incident, which took place near the Fort Stewart U.S. Army base, from which large groups of U.S. Army soldiers deploy to and return from combat zones abroad, did not register a beat with the national media.

The three men claimed they were "lost" and after questioning by federal authorities, they were released and allowed to return to Charleston. Comments posted on the Savannah Morning News website, that suggested the three men were either Israelis using their actual or bogus names were removed by the web site administrator who left only those comments that suggested the three released men were Muslims, Tatars, or Russian nationals.

Nor did the possible connection of the possible saboteurs caught near a power plant fed by natural gas in Georgia to the September 10 natural gas pipeline explosion in San Bruno, California, near San Francisco International Airport, that killed seven people and completely destroyed scores of homes. Six people remain missing in the neighborhood leveled by the explosion and resulting fire. Some residents reported hearing a rumbling noise prior to the explosion and thought it was either an earthquake or a plane in trouble trying to land at the nearby airport. The cause of the explosion remains unknown and the Pacific gas Electric pipeline was fully inspected just last year.

However, the media has had a checkered past of ignoring such stories when they involve Israeli nationals or nationals of other countries who also have Israeli citizenship. In the months before and after the inside job of 9/11, hundreds of Israeli "art student" door-to-door sales people, furniture movers, mall kiosk vendors, suspicious photographers, and suspected drug dealers were arrested by local police only later to be ordered by the FBI and other federal authorities to release them or permit the federal immigration authorities to deport them back to Israel. Not one case ever went to trial, although some of the incidents took place near a nuclear power plant in Tennessee and major oil refineries and natural gas installations in Houston and Corpus Christi, Texas.

Blackwater./Xe cells conducting false flag terrorist attacks in Pakistan

September , 2010 -- Blackwater./Xe cells conducting false flag terrorist attacks in Pakistan

Military Officers who have signed the "U.S. Military Officers for 9/11 Truth" Petition

WMR has learned from a deep background source that Xe Services, the company formerly known as Blackwater, has been conducting false flag terrorist attacks in Pakistan that are later blamed on the entity called "Pakistani Taliban."

Only recently did the US State Department designate the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), also known as the Pakistani Taliban, a terrorist group. The group is said by the State Department to be an off-shoot of the Afghan Taliban, which had links to "Al Qaeda" before the 9/11 attacks on the United States TTP's leader is Hakimullah Mehsud, said to be 30-years old and operating from Pakistan's remote tribal region with an accomplice named Wali Ur Rehman. In essence, this new team of Mehsud and Rehman appears to be the designated replacement for Osama Bin Laden and Ayman Zawahiri as the new leaders of the so-called "Global Jihad" against the West.

However, it is Xe cells operating in Karachi, Peshawar, Islamabad and other cities and towns that have, according to our source who witnessed the U.S.-led false flag terrorist operations in Pakistan. Bombings of civilians is the favored false flag event for the Xe team and are being carried out under the orders of the CIA.

However, the source is now under threat from the FBI and CIA for revealing the nature of the false flag operations in Pakistan. If the source does not agree to cooperate with the CIA and FBI, with an offer of a salary, the threat of false criminal charges being brought for aiding and abetting terrorism looms over the source.

The Blackwater/Xe involvement in terrorist attacks in Pakistan have been confirmed by the former head of the Inter Services Intelligence (ISI), General Hamid Gul, according to another source familiar with the current Xe covert operations. In addition, Pakistani ex-Army Chief of Staff, General Mirza Aslam Beg, reportedly claimed that while serving as president, General Pervez Musharraf approved Blackwater carrying out terrorist operations in Pakistan. Blackwater has been accused of smuggling weapons and munitions into Pakistan.

Earlier this year WMR reported that "intelligence sources in Asia and Europe are reporting that the CIA contractor firm XE Services, formerly Blackwater, has been carrying out 'false flag' terrorist attacks in Afghanistan, Somalia, the Sinkiang region of China, Pakistan, Iran, and Iraq, in some cases with the assistance of Israeli Mossad and Indian Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) personnel . . . A number of terrorist bombings in Pakistan have been blamed by Pakistani Islamic leaders on Blackwater, Mossad, and RAW. Blackwater has been accused of hiring young Pakistanis in Peshawar to carry out false flag bombings that are later blamed on the Pakistani Taliban, also known as Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan. One such bombing took place during the Ashura procession in Karachi last month. The terrorist attacks allegedly are carried out by a secret Blackwater-XE/CIA/Joint Special Operations Command forward operating base in Karachi. The XE Services component was formerly known as Blackwater Select, yet another subsidiary in a Byzantine network of shell and linked companies run by Blackwater/Xe on behalf of the CIA and the Pentagon. On December 3, 2009, the Pakistani newspaper Nawa-i-Waqt reported: 'Vast land near the Tarbela dam has also been given to the Americans where they have established bases for their army and air forces. There, the Indian RAW [Research and Analysis Wing] and Israeli Mossad are working in collaboration with the CIA to carry out extremist activities in Pakistan.'"

The bombing of a CIA base in Khost, Afghanistan last December was blamed on the TTP but may have actually involved the covert Xe/CIA program to stage false flag attacks and something went drastically wrong with the operation that resulted in the deaths of seven CIA personnel, including the Khost station chief. The TTP was also linked to the failed Times Square "bombing" last May.

Responsibility for the recent bomb attack of a pro-Palestine Shi'a rally in Quetta that killed 54 people was claimed by the Pakistan Taliban, but it was actually carried out by one of the Xe covert cells in the country, acting in concert with the CIA, Israeli Mossad, and Indian Research and Analysis Wing (RAW). The ultimate goal is to destabilize Pakistan to the point where it has no choice but to allow the Western powers to secure its nuclear weapons and remove them from the country in a manner similar to the procurement by the West of South Africa's nuclear weapons prior to the stepping down of the white minority government in the early 1990s.

WMR has been informed that any American, whether or not he or she holds a security clearance, is subject to U.S. national security prohibitions from discussing the U.S.- sponsored terrorist attacks in Pakistan. In one case, a threat was made against an individual who personally witnessed the Xe/CIA terrorist operations but is now threatened, along with family members.
