Able Danger Roundup

UPDATE: McCarthy was not on Lou Dobbs tonight. This is also not the first time Lou has taken a vacation day and postponed an interview he previewed, without any explanation or notice.

From Lou Dobbs on Wednesday:

We want to thank our panelists and we want you to join us tomorrow as well, when former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy will join us with the very latest on the Able Danger controversy...

I wonder if he'll be discussing this?

Attorneys for al Qaeda conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui have subpoenaed Pennsylvania Congressman Curt Weldon to testify at a trial that will determine whether Moussaoui should be executed.

The defense is seeking Weldon's testimony to try and show that the government knew more about the September 11, 2001, attacks than Moussaoui did....

Weldon is discussing the Moussaoui subpoena with legal counsel.

"The congressman certainly wants to cooperate any time a subpoena is issued," Tomaszewski said. "He is inclined to cooperate, but has not made a decision yet."

Mark Zaid, an attorney for Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer, one of the Pentagon analysts who has come forward to support Able Danger's findings, said Shaffer had not yet received a subpoena.

Go read that article for the latest on Able Danger and Moussaoui. The sentencing hearings are scheduled to start March 6th, and could last up to a month or two.

Then if you missed it, Sean Hannity was talking about Able Danger again on Tuesday, although only briefly, in reference to the joke formerly known as the 9/11 Commission. For those who disagreed with the slant of that Pittsburgh Tribune Review editorial, a reader writes in with a different take on Able Danger.
