Document: Able Danger Link Chart
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.
Views expressed on INTELWIRE are those of the author alone.

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
