More ABLE DANGER Info

      I'm up late, so I turned on the TV, and Fox had a story about the ABLE DANGER unit. According to Fox, an anonymous informant tells them that ABLE DANGER identified five key centers of al-Qaida activity by about 2000.  These five were: Yemen, where the USS Cole was attacked; Kenya and Tanzania, where our embassies were bombed; Germany, where the planning and logistical support for the 9/11 attacks was centered; and Brooklyn, where Atta was heading the cell that pulled off the actual attacks.

      Very interesting.  We need to investigate this thoroughly, and determine what the ABLE DANGER unit thought it had discovered, and when.  And we need to know how accurate that information was.

      Meanwhile, Captain Ed notes that in late February, early March 2001, Germany arrested two Iraqi intelligence agents.  It was shortly after this that Mohammed Atta allegedly traveled to Prague, and met with an Iraqi intelligence agent.  And we know that Germany was the main support center for the 9/11 attacks.

      All this suggests a hypothesis to the Captain: the Iraqis were helping al-Qaida on the 9/11 mission, the arrests disrupted and endangered Atta's support, and he then traveled to Prague to check out the situation, and determine whether he needed to scrub the operation, or could still get the support he needed (at the time, most of the hijackers weren't in the U.S. yet).  In short, we may have evidence connecting Iraq to the 9/11 attacks.

      Big story, no matter how it ultimately turned out.
