The Department of Defense Inspector General has released a report responding to the numerous allegations regarding the Able Danger program and its relation to the 9/11 attacks. Among the findings:
- The program did not identify Mohammed Atta prior to 9/11, stating that witness recollections to this effect were not accurate.
- DOD officials did not explicitly prohibit the sharing of Able Danger information with the FBI.
- Several terabytes of data related to the program were destroyed.
- The revocation of Lt. Tony Shaffer’s security clearance was appropriate given the full scope of circumstances beyond those publicly known.
