UPDATE: Regular commenter "bb" has cleared this up.

I saw this:



ABLEDANGER (Rosen, McClatchy Newspapers) _ Recommended for weekend use. WASHN: It's either the grandest conspiracy since the JFK assassination and the grassy knoll or much ado about nothing. Able Danger, a top-secret military program set up in 1999 to probe the al Qaeda terrorist network, is rekindling fierce debate about the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. 1,200. With ABLEDANGER-CHART.

But overlooked the article itself. From McClatchy Newspapers:

Weldon's crusade on Able Danger, though, has drawn derision in some quarters, even from some current or former lawmakers who have known him for years.

"By the way he talks about Able Danger these days, you'd think it would have prevented Pearl Harbor," said Timothy Roemer, a former Indiana Republican congressman and member of the 9/11 commission....

Breitweiser said she is confident additional facts about Able Danger will emerge.

"As more and more information is coming out, more and more Americans are questioning how this attack could have happened," Breitweiser said. "We're finding out we are not being told the truth. A lot of information was known, and the attacks could have been prevented."

This is similar to the Star Tribune piece, but the above at least is new.

And it looks like the chart they were referring to is this timeline of events, not the infamous pre-9/11 Mohamed Atta chart.
