“Iraq’s role in September 11 is still a question mark. There are signs that Baghdad was involved. A key indicator was the meeting in Prague, Czech Republic, in April 2001, between al Qaeda terrorist Mohamed Atta, the key figure in the September 11 attacks, and Ahmed Khalil Ibrahim Samir al-Ani, the second secretary of the Iraqi consulate in Prague. Al-Ani also was working undercover as an officer in the Iraqi foreign intelligence service, known as the Mukhabarat. The meeting was monitored by the Czech counterintelligence service, known as BIS. …The Czech Interior Ministry claims that it does not know the details of the specific conversation between Atta and al-Ani.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
