Apparently Ed Morrissey has an inside source that has told him some interesting information about the recent Able Danger hearings:

An inside source on the Able Danger controversy — one that has provided CQ with reliable background information in the past — gives some interesting background information about the recent hearings on the data-mining program that the 9/11 Commission did its best to ignore. The source writes:

The Able Danger hearing was noteworthy for things that did not happen. One interesting item that everyone seems to have missed is that Steve Cambone did not swear in for his testimony to the subcommittee. (In fact, he refused to swear in, but this was not made an issue by the subcommittee.) Thus, no matter how blatantly erroneous his testimony was, he can’t be charged with perjury as he did not testify under oath.

Also, Zelikow was excoriated in his testimony during the closed session by the Representatives present. He was called a liar to his face.

How interesting. Ed updates his post with the fact that his source mistook Hadley for Cambone but either way it’s quite interesting that he did not want to be sworn in.

On another note, I will be participating in a conference call with Curt Weldon and some other bloggers tomorrow. If anyone has a question for the Congressman let me know. Also, I have transcribed 50 minutes of the hearings here. .PDF file here. More to follow.
