Mike at Lawhawk e-mails: "...the following bloggers should get recognized for their work on uncovering Able Danger and the 9/11 Commission's failure to properly and fully investigate the matter: AJ Strata, MacsMind, and the Able Danger Blog. Able Danger continues to be one of the major stories of 2005 and yet it has been underplayed by the big media like no other major story." Agreed. I'd also add Vi Adkins and Ed Morrissey's 9/11 Commission/Able Danger archive to the list of resources.Vi is one of the co-bloggers on the Able Danger blog, but he should have gotten a personal shoutout. My apologies for the oversight Vi.
Able Danger truly is one of the most underrated stories of the year. Its national security implications affect nearly every story relating to 9/11, the use of intelligence, and even the current frenzy over obtaining intel on certain conversations. In the coming year, one can only hope that this story gets wider play - and that the 9/11 Commission will be forced to answer why they purposefully excluded the intel gathered by Able Danger when it appears that it caught the names of Atta and several of his co-conspirators months before they launched the terrorist attack on 9/11/2001.
