Able Danger Dodge:

?¢â??¬???I think the Department of Defense owes the American people an explanation of what went on here,?¢â??¬  Senate Judiciary Chairman Arlen Specter (R.-Pa.) said this week after the Pentagon, arguing the program was classified, barred witnesses with knowledge of the military?¢â??¬â??¢s Able Danger data-mining-intelligence unit from publicly testifying at a September 21 committee hearing.

The questions: What did the Defense Department know about terrorist Mohammed Atta? When did it know it? And why didn?¢â??¬â??¢t it tell the FBI what it knew? ?¢â??¬???The Pentagon has acknowledged that at least five members of Able Danger have said they recall a chart produced in 2000 that identified Mr. Atta ?¢â??¬ ¦,?¢â??¬  reported the New York Times. The Associated Press reported of the September 21 hearing: ?¢â??¬???Erik Kleinsmith, a former Army major who worked on Able Danger, said he destroyed documents pertaining to Able Danger in 2000 because he was required to do so under Army regulations.?¢â??¬  ?¢â??¬???Did we have information that identified Mohammed Atta??¢â??¬  William Dugan, an assistant to Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld testified in the committee. ?¢â??¬???I?¢â??¬â??¢ve heard the testimony presented, but I don?¢â??¬â??¢t know.?¢â??¬ 
