“The Czech interior minister said today [October 27, 2001] that an Iraqi intelligence officer [Ahmed Khalil Ibrahim Samir al-Ani] met with Mohammed Atta…[in April 2001] just five months before the synchronized hijackings and mass killings were carried out. The official confirmation of the meeting, the details of which remain a mystery, does not amount to proof of Iraqi involvement in the attacks.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
