This week we have had the following developments in the Able Danger story:

* Curt Weldon confesses his chart is a "reconstruction" and not the true chart (2)
* Thousands of false positives: NYT's Philip Shenon said that Able Danger came up with names not just of Atta [but] with a tremendous number of names of very decent American citizens.(3)
* Lt Cmdr. Shaffer comes out of the woodwork saying he was one of the military talking about Able Danger to the 9/11 commission (1)
* The 9/11 commission admits it was warned by Capt. Scott Phillpott (7)
* Lt Cmdr. Shaffer admits "We didn't [think] that Atta's name was significant" at the time (1)
* Strange Retreat from Right-wing bloggers (John Podhoretz, Jim Geraghty) who now appear to be backpedaling on Able Danger (5)
* Lt Cmdr. Shaffer said Thursday that many of his allegations were based not on his memory but on the recollections of others. (4)
* Not the first time Weldon caught in a lie: Weldon Rev Moon and Khadafi - Weldon's office denied that he spoke at Moon's coronation, but had to backpedal as a picture of him surfaced (6)
