China And Able Danger

Powerline comments on the NY Post article this morning. It's money, honey. The allegation was that Able Danger was deep-sixed when it came up with data on Chinese "investments". NY Post:
The Pentagon canceled its contract with the private firm shortly after the analysts — who were working on identifying al Qaeda operatives — produced a particularly controversial chart on proliferation of sensitive technology to China, the sources said.

Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer, the veteran Army officer who was the Defense Intelligence Agency liaison to Able Danger, told The Post China "had something to do" with the decision to restructure Able Danger.

Sources said the private contractors, using sophisticated computer software that sifts through massive amounts of raw data to establish patterns, came up with a chart of Chinese strategic and business connections in the U.S.
And that was that. This I totally believe and it is still going on today. I don't think most of it has to do with sensitive technology, but it sure does have to do with running money around. Canada is implicated as well.

A look at Chinese purchases of natural resource companies in Canada will make your hair stand up.
And tech companies, and it's fascinating to trace some of these private investment consortiums and discover where the money ends up.

I think the evidence is out there.
