Document: Able Danger Link Chart



By J.M. Berger
INTELWIRE.com


INTELWIRE has posted a link chart used by the controversial Able Danger project, an early U.S. military effort at data mining.

The chart was found on a laptop in a safe at U.S. Special Operations headquarters. The computer screen was photographed.

In response to a Freedom of Information Act request, the Defense Department informed INTELWIRE that the posted version is the best quality reproduction available. INTELWIRE has highlighted identifiable text and photographs in blue for readability.

The chart is one of only three authentic charts known to have been used by Able Danger. One of the remaining charts is completely illegible to the point that it could be anything. Only the heading of the second chart is legible; it deals with al Qaeda's links to Pan-Islamic Extremism.

The chart may be viewed by clicking here. It features several al Qaeda-linked notables, including Osama bin Laden, Ayman Al Zawahiri, Ramzi Yousef, Omar Abdel Rahman, Wali Khan Amin Shah and Ali Mohamed.

"...smart, granular analysis..."

ISIS: The State of Terror
"Jessica Stern and J.M. Berger's new book, "ISIS," should be required reading for every politician and policymaker... Their smart, granular analysis is a bracing antidote to both facile dismissals and wild exaggerations... a nuanced and readable account of the ideological and organizational origins of the group." -- Washington Post

"...a timely warning..."

Jihad Joe: Americans Who Go to War in the Name of Islam:
"At a time when some politicians and pundits blur the line between Islam and terrorism, Berger, who knows this subject far better than the demagogues, sharply cautions against vilifying Muslim Americans. ... It is a timely warning from an expert who has not lost his perspective." -- New York Times
