More On Saddam- 9/11 Link

More evidence has surfaced to support a longstanding claim by the Czech intelligence service that 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta met with Ahmed al-Ani, an Iraqi intelligence official on April 8, 2001 in Prague. Laurie Mylroie has details in a Front Page Magazine article:

Following the 9/11 attacks, the Czech informant who had observed the meeting saw Mohammed Atta’s picture in the papers and told the BIS he believed that Atta was the man he had seen meeting with al-Ani. On September 14, BIS informed its CIA liaison that they had tentatively identified Atta as al-Ani’s contact.
