The Non-Story About the Non-Event
Mohammed Atta did not meet with an Iraqi intelligence official in Prague. We knew that from an earlier Times story
, and commented "in this space
", as my man Safire likes to says.
Now, the Times has a follow-up: top Czechs still discount the possibility of the meeting, but the phone calls from Havel
reported earlier never happened. However, Havel has said for a while that the meeting didn't happen.
So, the non-story about the non-meeting. I am sort of non-linking, too, just to stay with the spirit. The Hammer
tipped me to some "Best of the Web
" reporting. Hey, another new blog!
