Patrick Henry Center Supports Lt. Colonel Tony Shaffer
WASHINGTON, Nov. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- As of November 30, 2005 Gary Aldrich,
President of the Patrick Henry Center (PHC) has taken Lt. Colonel Tony Shaffer
of the Defense Intelligence Agency Operation Able Danger into the PHC
WhistleBlower program. "We have agreed to help protect Shaffer," Aldrich
"The Patrick Henry Center is helping Shaffer because he spoke up" (about
government incompetence), Aldrich said. As a result of Shaffer asking the
Federal 9/11 Commission to consider the Able Danger intelligence information
on Mohamed Atta "his job and security clearance have been revoked," Aldrich
Shaffer has been on forced administrative leave from the DIA, but on
November 14, 2005 the DIA stopped paying income and benefits to him. Shaffer
was formerly an undercover intelligence officer for the DIA. He chose to
publicly disclose his identity in August of 2005 so, that he could address the
misuse of the Able Danger intelligence gathered on the Brooklyn, New York cell
of Al Qaeda before 9/11.
The Patrick Henry Center has hired Washington, DC attorney Michael A.
Carvin to represent Shaffer as Congress continues to look into this situation.
The WhistleBlower program is designed specifically to help people like
Shaffer. "No Whistleblower should ever be worse off for telling the truth,"
