Even More on Able Danger

It IS how we got Atta's name that's the problem (see below), says Mickey Kaus, who writes about something that's been bothering me since the Able Danger story broke...and that is this: is our libertarian, instinctual resistance to government data mining compromising our national security - to the point that, in fact, this resistance allowed 9/11 to occur? It's not a slam dunk, but certainly a case can be made...and a far stronger case than the one Leftists routinely throw out about how 9/11 could have been prevented by a vague briefing that al Qaeda was planning a strike...
