五角大樓焚書:毀滅有爭議的陸軍軍官回憶錄副本
Pentagon Destroys Copies of Controversial Memoir Written by Army Officer

Published September 25, 2010

The Defense Intelligence Agency has blocked a book about the tipping point in Afghanistan and a controversial pre-9/11 data mining project called "Able Danger."
美國國防情報局已封鎖一本書,關於阿富汗引爆點及一爭議性的911前數據挖掘項目稱為“能危險。”

The Pentagon has burned 9,500 copies of Army Reserve Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer's memoir "Operation Dark Heart," his book about going undercover in Afghanistan.
五角大樓已經燒毀 9,500份,後備軍中校安東尼謝弗的回憶錄“黑心行動”,他的書關於在阿富汗的臥底。
A Department of Defense official tells Fox News that the department purchased copies of the first printing because they contained information which could cause damage to national security.
一國防部官員告訴福克斯新聞,部門購買第一次印刷的副本,因為它們包含的信息可能導致國家安全的損害。

The U.S. Army originally cleared the book for release.
美國陸軍最初掃清發布的書。

The U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency attempted to block the book about the tipping point in Afghanistan and a controversial pre-9/11 data mining project called "Able Danger."
美國國防情報局企圖封鎖該書,是關於阿富汗引爆點及一爭議性的911前數據挖掘項目稱為“能危險。”
In a letter obtained by Fox News, the DIA says national security could be breached if "Operation Dark Heart" is published in its current form. The agency also attempted to block key portions of the book that claim "Able Danger" successfully identified hijacker Mohammed Atta as a threat to the United States before the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.
在一封福克斯新聞得到的信中,國防情報局說,可能是違反國家安全如果“黑心行動”以目前的形式出版。機構亦試圖阻止書的關鍵部分,聲稱“能危險”成功地辨明劫機犯穆罕默德阿塔為美國的威脅,在2001年9月11日恐怖襲擊前。

Specifically, the DIA wanted references to a meeting between Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, the book's author, and the executive director of the 9/11 Commission, Philip Zelikow, removed. In that meeting, which took place in Afghanistan, Shaffer alleges the commission was told about "Able Danger" and the identification of Atta before the attacks. No mention of this was made in the final 9/11 report.

Shaffer, who was undercover at the time, said there was "stunned silence" at the meeting after he told the executive director of the commission and others that Atta was identified as early as 2000 by "Able Danger."

"Dr. Philip Zelikow approached me in the corner of the room. 'What you said today is very important. I need you to get in touch with me as soon as you return from your deployment here in Afghanistan'," Shaffer said.

Once back in the U.S., Shaffer says he contacted the commission. Without explanation, the commission was no longer interested. An inspector general report by the Department of Defense concluded there was no evidence to support the claims of Shaffer and others. But Fox News has obtained an unredacted copy of the IG report containing the names of witnesses, who backed up Shaffer's story when contacted for comment.

Atta was the alleged ringleader of the Sept. 11 hijackers and piloted American Airlines Flight 11 into the World Trade Center.

Shaffer spoke to Fox News before he was asked by the military not to discuss the book. He confirmed efforts to block the book and other details.

Calling the move "highly unusual," he explained that the book had already been cleared for release when the DIA stepped in.

"Apparently, Defense Intelligence Agency took exception to the way the Army cleared the book," he told Fox News.

The DOD says Shaffer and the book’s publisher ‘voluntarily agreed’ to remove what it deemed to be classified information prior to the book’s first printing.

“Given the sensitive nature of this request and the potential damage to national security, the Department of Defense had every reason to believe that this would be handled with the utmost discretion by all of the parties. Unfortunately, someone disclosed to the press these ongoing efforts before the Department of Defense had the opportunity to finish working with the publisher on a corrected version,” a DOD official told Fox News.

The DOD is currently working with the publisher to ‘mitigate the resulting effects of the disclosures,’ the official said.

The documents and exclusive interviews, including an Army data collector on the Able Danger Project, are part of an ongoing investigation by the documentary unit "Fox News Reporting" which uncovered new details about American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and efforts by the FBI to track and recruit him for intelligence purposes after 9/11.
