          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
      explained.
          "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      on Mohamed Atta "his job and security clearance have been revoked," Aldrich
      observed.
          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,"
      Aldrich said.
