Like Dr. Sanity, I could not find television coverage of the Able Danger hearings. But Dr. Sanity looked further and found a webstream source, from which she writes a really excellent summary of what was discussed today and what conclusions intelligent folks may draw. All of it is troubling, and all of it calls into question the theatrics of last year within the 9/11 commission.
Dr. Sanity thinks that perhaps AD was disbanded because it shed too much light on subjects unrelated to 9/11 that may have reflected badly on someone within the Clinton Administration. I tend to agree with that and will probably do so until we find out what exactly was in Sandy Berger’s pants. However, that does not explain the reluctance by the current administration to pursue this matter with all due scrutiny. The whole thing is odd…but I cannot help but think Sandy Berger’s thefts from the National Archive (and his extraordinarily light sentence) play a part. You will definately want to read the whole thing.
UPDATE: A writer in to NRO’s The Corner offers a more benign explanation of things.
