Curt Weldon – Able Crazy

Curt Weldon (R-PA) is selling a book (published this past June) : Countdown to Terror: The Top-Secret Information that Could Prevent the Next Terrorist Attack on America ... and How the CIA has Ignored it.

From the Inside Flap
"Could the next September 11 be nuclear? This is no theory, says Congressman Curt Weldon, in his shocking new book Countdown to Terror. It is a fact as real as the arrest of Muslim terrorists who planned to crash a plane into the Seabrook nuclear power plant in New Hampshire in 2004. What’s even more stunning, Congressman Weldon tried to warn American intelligence about the attack—but no one in America’s intelligence community would listen. How did Congressman Weldon know about it? Because of a secret source, an intelligence contact code-named Ali who has been a treasure trove of reliable intelligence—intelligence that, despite Congressman Weldon’s strenuous efforts, has been routinely ignored by the CIA and the rest of America’s intelligence services. But in Countdown to Terror, Congressman Weldon lets you know what the CIA doesn’t want to know. You’ll learn, straight from Ali’s actual reports: · Why Iran will decide the next terror strike on America · How a major planned terror strike was called off because the terrorists thought it would help President Bush politically · Why Iran, not al Qaeda, is the command post of radical Islamic terror · Who is undercutting American efforts to create a peaceful, stable Iraq · Why Iran is like the Soviet Union in the 1980s: extremely dangerous, the iron glove behind all our enemies—yet on the verge of internal collapse · The Iranian nuclear program: red-hot and more advanced than you think Congressman Weldon’s sharing of vital intelligence with you, the reading public, is unprecedented. But it is necessary so that the American people can be informed and pressure our government to do what needs to be done to protect our country, fix our still broken intelligence services, and win the war on terrorism. Countdown to Terror is a frightening book—but it is all true. And if we act now, we can avoid its grimmest scenarios."

Is Weldon hawking the next war while prepping us for the next 911? Weldon with an inside source "Ali" who is a treasure trove of info, through "strenuous efforts" is flashing us a blinking alert on Iran, Iran, Iran, although Weldon's predictions are "routinely ignored." Don't you just love the smell of propaganda and fear.

Weldon, whose source, now self-identified as Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer, are both shilling the "Clinton's Fault" opera (surprise). Do you notice how today's "deep throats" like Shaffer "out" themselves within a month or so? Col. Shaffer says the small, highly classified intel program, known as Able Danger, identified the terrorist ringleader, Mohamed Atta, and three other future hijackers by name in mid-2000, and tried to share that info with the F-B-I (say fbi in a Hannibal Lector voice). I have to doubt men who couldn't come up with a more creative code name than "Ali."

Shaffer says military lawyers forced members of the intel program to cancel three meetings with the F.B.I. – because – the F.B.I. feared Able Danger might be portrayed as a military op that violated the privacy of civilians who were legally in the United States. Yep, the feds were overly concerned about the privacy rights of Atta & Crew.

The bureau, Famous But Incompetent, was never concerned about the privacy rights of Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the Nation of Islam, the Black Panther Party, Deacons for Defense and Justice, Inc., the W.E.B. DuBois Clubs, the Congress of Racial Equality, the American Indian Movement, the Socialist Workers Party, Martin Luther King, and over one million Vietnam War protester dossiers. Or more recently Ruby Ridge, Waco, Richard Jewell. But had to protect Atta's right to privacy. I believe it, I tell you I believe it.

Back to the topic of Able Danger though. Schaffer had his security clearance suspended in March of 2004, and is on administrative leave from the Defense Department. This week Shaffer briefed "Magic Bullet" Arlen Specter's staff on Able Danger. The files on Able Danger are in the Department of Defense "if they exist" according to 9/11 Commission chairman Tom Kean.

Tim Roemer, also a former commissioner, says inconsistencies are appearing such as "how did Able Danger get a photo of Atta in 2000 for its alleged chart of terrorists when he had not yet applied for a U.S. visa." Hmmm.

Weldon + Shaffer = tabloid news = another distraction. Watch for my future exposé : Countdown to Another Phony Book While Planning the Real Bad Things For America: Top-Secrets Leaking Like a Sieve As Fast As We Can Write Them ... and How the People Eat it Up.
