What will Arlen Specter, Pennsylvania Republican and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, discover as he looks into covert military intelligence program Able Danger, said to have discovered Mohamed Atta, by name, and his al Qaeda cell working in the U.S. before the attacks of September 11, 2001?

Arlen will discover what he chooses to discover.
I wonder if any of the thugs BC pardoned at the end of his presidency ended up on any list.
Sadly you are correct, I have NO faith in Arlen searching for truth, whatever he comes up with will serve his own purpose not to serve for truth.
No matter what he "finds"..........
It's Bush's fault.

Yes pretty much sums it up.
I appreciate your work and thank you for the ping.
You are welcome. I am fascinated by this story.
Article fails to highlight PROBABLE coverup inside 9/11 Commission, conflict of interest by Gorelick, involvement of DoD lawyers, and shutdown by Generals.
And fails to mention destruction of the data, by dubious orders.
IMO Rumsfeld took a breather, to get up to speed on what may be revealed about the previous administration's role.
Hopefully the RESULT will lay out a firm basis for the position that democrats can't be trusted with our national security.
Like Specter or not, he is an experienced guy, and I see no reason why he would short circuit this. Biden may also see political advantage in making himself the democrat that called it as he saw it, therefore can be trusted.
As much as Arlen goes hot and cold on conservative issues I have to give him an "A" for closing the initial hearing and telling the Asst Secretary of Defense that the hearing was done and that the next time they convened he wanted someone from the DOD to come with answers because he wasn't giving the committee any answers.
Forget Arlen. Kurt Weldon and tony Shaffer will get the job done, Arlen is just along for the ride.
Ol Arlene will cover it up with his kilt!
