Daily Kos: Curt Weldon's 'Able Danger' lie: 9/11 Revisionism, Revisited

* Federal agencies from had, in fact, identified the major New York cell of Mohamed Atta prior to 9/11 (via a military special ops group called 'Able Danger' which used data-mining techniques)
* in September of 2000, that Federal agency actually was prepared to bring the FBI in and take down the cell
* lawyers in the administration at that time said, you cannot pursue contact with the FBI against that cell because
o Mohamed Atta is in the U.S. on a green card,
o and we are fearful of the fallout from the Waco incident
* The 9/11 Commission and Stephen Hadley, at the National Security Council had been notified of this

But Atta DID NOT have a green card
In fact, he and most of the hijackers had violated rules on their tourist visa more than once as told by the 9/11 commission statement on Atta and his cohorts Visas
