This story doesn't seen to be getting the attention I think it deserves:
"Rep. Curt Weldon, R-Penn., told United Press International that officials at the Defense Intelligence Agency, or DIA, had "conducted a deliberate campaign of character assassination" against the whistleblower, retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer.
Shaffer has said that a highly classified Pentagon data-mining project he worked on, codenamed Able Danger, identified the ringleaders of the Sept. 11 terror attacks as linked to al-Qaida more than a year before they hijacked four planes and crashed them, killing nearly 3,000 people."
I heard some Of Weldon's speech on C-span. I have never seen a congressman so honestly upset. I have not found this news story anywhere else. Isn't this important?? Why would the DIA be going after Shaffer like this? Weldon said Shaffer has lost his pension and health care. He said that Shaffer has served 24 yrs and the only spot on his record was when he was 15 and he stole some pens from the Pentagon and they are using that against him!!
UPDATE: I did find this story. It has more details.
I tell you, something weird is going on here. There is something the DIA doesn't want known. Something about knowing who the hijackers were before 9-11. This should be a bigger story.
