Deputy Director who silenced Able Danger has a new job

The official responsible for all of the latest retaliation against Shaffer - the same guy who refused to hear a briefing from Shaffer on Able Danger in 2000 because it might contain information obtained through controversial datamining methods - is now in charge of "outcomes" for the newly established DNI under John Negroponte. In case you missed this development from back on October 31, 2005 like I did, here is Ewing's new job title:

Mr. Mark Ewing
Principal Assistant Deputy Director,
Office of the Deputy Director of National Intelligence for Customer Outcomes

Mr. Ewing served as Deputy Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency from 2000 to 2005. Previously, he was Assistant Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence, Department of the Army, from 1996 to 2000.
