The big question today is whether those of us who have come to be skeptical of the so-called Able Danger revelations have somehow “wimped out” or “sold out.” The question is: Wimped out to whom? Sold out to whom? Does anybody think those of us who first believed the story was explosive and now no longer find it credible are getting rewarded for this change of opinion? If you think so, you ain’t reading my e-mail, which is almost exclusively insulting. And trust me when I say I’m not getting a) any speaking gigs because of it, b) any writing assignments because of it or c) anything whatsoever except a bad conscience for having promoted a revelation I now profoundly suspect is untrue.
And for the record, I don’t find the Washington Times story to which Andy McCarthy referred earlier especially credible because it continues to feature allegations without any evidence from sole speakers who may or may not be a) honest, b) above board or c) psycho. Andy keeps having to use the word “assume” about every allegation made in the course of that story because there is no evidence other than his word.
