Regarding the possible visit between lead 9/11 hijacker Mohamed Atta and an Iraqi intelligence officer in Prague, Czech Republic, an April 28, 2002, Newsweek article by Michael Isikoff “quoted a ‘senior U.S. law enforcement official’ saying, ‘We looked at this real hard because, obviously, if it were true, it would be huge. But nothing had matched up.’ Isikoff allowed that new information suggesting a link could turn up, but concluded, ‘for now, at least, the much-touted *Prague connection* appears to be an intriguing, but embarrassing, mistake.’ ”
