Able Danger Getting Curiouser and Curiouser

Those on-again/off-again hearings by the Senate Judiciary Committee with Able Danger figures continue to bubble along. JustOneMinute notes a superb roundup of the Able Danger developments and background to date by Chicago Tribune Washington Bureau reporters John Crewdson and Andrew Zajac and wonders why these two scribes can find FBIers who recall Able Danger contacts but Sen. Arlen Specter, who chairs the Senate panel, can't.

JustOneMinute also links to this essential Decision 08 post on that very curious "Early Warning" Able Danger series now running in The Washington Post by William Arkin. See especially the background info on Arkin.

Stay tuned, folks, because this one is far from over.
