"Able Danger" not able to warn about danger

The "Able Danger" fallout is getting more interesting to watch. WorldNetDaily reports that the 9/11 commission staff is beginning to feel the heat for ignoring information that would have been potentially embarrassing for panel-member Jamie Gorelick:

Online commentators are taking aim at the 9/11 commission for its failure to include in its report that intelligence officials reportedly ID'd hijack ringleader Mohamed Atta as part of an al-Qaida cell in the U.S. over a year before the September 11 tragedy but no action was taken against him, saying the panel was acting politically instead of factually.

One commentator specifically points his finger at former Clinton staffer Jamie Gorelick, a member of the panel who has been accused in the past of acting to protect her ex-boss from any political fallout of the commission's work.
