A US spook who has promoted the 9-11 Official opposition narrative.

Anthony Shaffer is a US spook. His memoirs promote the 9-11 Official opposition narrative that the events of September 11th were exacerbated by intelligence sharing failures.


In October 2003, according to his later statement to Congress, Shaffer told the 9/11 Commission staff director, Philip D. Zelikow that in 2000, a DIA data-mining program known as Able Danger had uncovered two of the three terrorist cells which after 9/11 the FBI determined committed 9/11. Shaffer reportedly told Zelikow that DIA leadership declined to share this information with the FBI because military lawyers expressed concerns about the legality of doing so. Shaffer also asserted that he briefed Director of Central Intelligence George Tenet on three separate occasions regarding his unit's activities.

Zelikow's 9/11 Commission Report did not mention Shaffer's allegations or the fact that he had been interviewed, a good example of how such official reports are made to fit a pre-made conclusion, by selecting wanted information and de-emphasizing or not including other things.

But in 2005 and 2006, the Chairman of the House Select Intelligence Committee, Curt Weldon, publicized Shaffer's allegations in public statements and hearings. Weldon said that the Pentagon took the actions of stripping Shaffer of his security clearance, putting him on indefinite suspension without pay, taking away his pension and medical coverage as punishment for Shaffer's repeatedly bringing forward of the above Able Danger facts.[1]


All 10,000 copies of the first (underacted) version were reportedly bought up and destroyed by the US Defense department in order to obscure the fact that the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) failed to properly pass on intelligence on 9/11 hijacker Mohamed Atta
