Many are requesteding for the US to come clean on Able Danger:
On Friday, Rep. Curt Weldon, R-Pa., sent Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld a letter signed by a bipartisan group of 246 lawmakers demanding that the program’s officers and contractors be allowed to testify in open congressional hearings.
“Further refusal … can only lead us to conclude that the Department of Defense is uncomfortable with the prospect of members of Congress questioning these individuals about the circumstances surrounding Able Danger,” the letter said. “This would suggest not a concern for national security, but rather an attempt to prevent potentially embarrassing facts from coming to light.”
And the Jersey Girls spoke up again as well:
Kristin Breitweiser, a New Jersey woman whose husband died in the World Trade Center during the attacks, said she and other relatives of some of the 2,986 Sept. 11 victims have met with the military officers who worked on Able Danger. The Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency ended the computer-data-mining operation in early 2001.
“It’s very upsetting to hear people tell you that your husband and the father of your children didn’t have to die, because we had information to stop the attacks,” Breitweiser said in an interview.
Time to explain to America what happened, and let the chips fall where they may.
