What's Curt Weldon's Deal?

Can someone please explain to me why Republican Congressman Curt Weldon is whipping a dead horse named "Able Danger." He's calling for a criminal investigation into the secret Pentagon program. He seems completely sincere in his concern, which begs the question, why is he a Republican? I can't seem to make sense of this, a non-partisan concern for the truth comeing from the right side of the aisle? What gives?

Its a "blame Clinton" thing - the claim is that The Pentagon and US Army intel knew about the 9/11 highjackers as early as 1999 but Clinton didn't do anything about it because, well, he's weak on defense, nat sec, blah blah blah.

Oh! I knew there was something stupid about it, I just had forgotten that the blame Clinton wing of the party was still active.

I read all of the links, and it may be getting twisted into an anti-Clinton thing, but this guy does say he handed info over to the Bush admin, via Hadley, before 9/11, and jack happened with it.

I think the key issue is, I could care less about people's motivations or post-facto use of the data, if there's relevant data on the 9/11 fiasco, I want to know, regardless.
