DoD Cover Up of "Able Danger?"

Oh, the Truthers are going to have a field day with this one. Maybe those Loose Change conspiracists will make volume four or something. You know, now they have conclusive "proof."

But it looks like someone was attempting to cover up the investigative findings that 9/11 hijacker, Mohammed Atta was known to U.S. and other intelligence officials at least a year before he and 18 other Muslim extremists flew commercial aircraft into the World Trade Center and Pentagon and of course the failed mission of flight 93 that crashed in a field in Pennsylvania.

The operation or investigation was known as "Able Danger," and it was all the rage in the blogosphere in 2005.

Now, Fox News exclusively reports that the DoD materially altered witness testimony in its investigation.

A document obtained and witnesses interviewed by Fox News raise new questions over whether there was an effort by the Defense Department to cover up a pre-9/11 military intelligence program known as “Able Danger.”

At least five witnesses questioned by the Defense Department’s Inspector General told Fox News that their statements were distorted by investigators in the final IG’s report — or it left out key information, backing up assertions that lead hijacker Mohammed Atta was identified a year before 9/11. …

Fox News, as part of an ongoing investigation, exclusively obtained a clean copy of the report and spoke to several principal witnesses, including an intelligence and data collector who asked that she not be named.

The witness told Fox News she was interviewed twice by a Defense Department investigator. She said she told the investigator that it was highly likely a department database included the picture of Atta, whom she knew under an alias, Mohammed el-Sayed.
“When it came to the picture, (the investigator) he was fairly hostile,” the witness told Fox News. She said it seemed the investigator just didn’t want to hear it. “Meaning that he’d ask the same question over and over again, and, you know, you get to the point you go, well, you know… it’s the same question, it’s the same answer.”
