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!
