Certainly doesn't make him look like a fundamentalist Muslim does it?
The Able Danger program did not identify any of the hijackers as
anything beyond members of a social network. I suggest you go do a
little more research on what it actually did achieve, which was very
little, and stop padding your posts with LTCs Shaffer's resume, which
isn't actually relevant.
Atta, a fundamentalist? Not likely on the evidence. On the evidence
a narco trafficker is a great deal more likely.
I rest my case
Shaffer's resume not relevant? I would argue that it is, on the
contrary, most relevant. A twenty year veteran intelligence officer,
a Task Force leader who was awarded a Bronze Medal and was hunky-dory
until he spoke out about 911. Whatever you might care to think about
Col. Shaffer, others think differently.
Shaffer is an experienced intelligence officer with an impressive
resume. That is not the problem. The problem is what did Able Danger
actually find? If Able Danger did not find any evidence to implicate
Atta in the plot ahead of time, then his credentials are no more
relevant than Franz Beckenbauer's. People tend to forget the
importance of Occam's Razor in the interpretation of incomplete data.
