Able Danger was a classified United States Special Operations Command military intelligence program under the command of the U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM). It was created as a result of a directive from the Joint Chiefs’ 
to develop an Information Operations Campaign Plan against transnational terrorism, “specifically al-Qaida.” According to statements by Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer and confirmed by four others, Able Danger had identified the September 11, 2001 attack leader Mohamed Atta, and three of the 9/11 plot’s 19 hijackers, as possible members of an al Qaeda cell linked to the ’93 World Trade Center Attacks.
Congressman Curt Weldon has stated that Able Danger identified Mohamed Atta 13 separate times prior to 9/11
and asserted that the information was blocked from following the proper channels
to prevent the 9-11 attacks. Weldon has also alleged the intelligence concerning Able Danger was provided to the 9/11 Commission and ignored.
Two 9/11 Commission members, Timothy J. Roemer and John F. Lehman, both claimed not to have received any information on Able Danger. On August 12, 2005, Thomas H. Kean and Lee H. Hamilton, former Chair and Vice Chair of the 9/11 Commission, issued a statement admitting that the Commission had been aware of the Able Danger program, and requested and obtained information about it from the Department of Defense following publicity of Able Danger in Government Security News.
