Intel Panel Takes Its Able Danger Behind Closed Doors:

The Senate Intelligence Committee has received statements in closed session that could clear up the controversy surrounding the “Able Danger” data-mining program. A committee spokesman told the Washington Times that the committee will probably release a report or statement in the next two weeks that would make conclusions or determine the facts behind allegations that the intelligence program had identified 9/11 hijacker Mohamed Atta a year before the attacks. The Senate Judiciary Committee is still pursuing a request to the Pentagon that two defense intelligence analysts be allowed to testify in open session.
