"'Able Danger' was the unclassified name for an effort that began in October 1999. Then Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Henry H. Shelton, U.S. Army, directed the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) to develop a campaign plan against transnational terrorism with an initial focus on the al Qa'ida terrorist network, its command and control infrastructure, leadership, and decision-making process. The USSOCOM fulfilled its mission to draft a campaign plan and delivered this final product to the Joint Staff in January 2001, at which point the Able Danger effort was concluded."
