Another Set Of Able Danger Documents To Surface?

Another shoe may drop in the Able Danger story tomorrow, when Rep. Curt Weldon plans on holding a press conference to announce new developments in the case. Weldon's office released a statement today announcing the media event tomorrow at 12:30 PM ET, which can also be found on his website, I believe. Weldon's invitation promises the following:

The latest findings include: information Able Danger provided to defense officials about terrorist activity in the Port of Aden prior to the terrorist attack on the USS Cole back in October 2000; a discovery of another Able Danger member who confirms a set of Able Danger data not accounted for by the Pentagon; recent statements by the 9-11 Commission about Able Danger; and the latest efforts by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) to smear Able Danger member Lt. Col. Shaffer who broke the silence about the Pentagon's efforts to track al-Qaeda worldwide prior to September 11 [emphases mine -- CE].

We already know about the smear attempt, and also the DIA's railroading of Shaffer in stripping him of his clearances for picayune offenses that go far back into his past -- which should have already been part of his security reviews several times over. I won't get a chance to listen into the press conference, but I will be following up with great interest later in the evening.
