'Able Danger' and Coordinating Pre-Sept. 11 Intelligence

An Army intelligence officer, Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer, says his unit, known as "Able Danger," identified four future Sept. 11 hijackers as al Qaeda members in the United States -- well before the 2001 attacks. He says the 9/11 Commission did not thoroughly investigate this data.
