Atta/Abu Nidal Link Debunked

Michael Isikoff and Mark Hosenball of Newsweek say that the recently-touted Iraqi memo purporting to show that Mohammad Atta was trained by Aub Nidal in Baghdad during the summer of 2001 (and, as an added bonus, says that yellowcake is on its way from Niger) is “probably a fabrication.” The reporters rely mostly on off-the-record information from anonymous FBI officials who say that Atta’s movements during the summer of 2001 have been reconstructed, and there is little room for him to have made such a trip to Iraq.
Unfortunately, I think they’re probably right.
