Atta Was in the U.S., Not Baghdad, at Time Alleged in Forged Letter?
Posted by Adam Blickstein

The allegations in Ron Suskind's new book of the Bush administration forging a letter linking 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta and Iraq to bolster the justification for war are pretty explosive. Shortly after news of the letter's existence broke in Britain, though, Newsweek cited "U.S. officials and a leading Iraqi document...that the document is most likely a forgery." Fair enough, but there is another striking aspect of the article:

The problem with this, say U.S. law enforcement officials, is that the FBI has compiled a highly detailed time line for Atta's movements throughout the spring and summer of 2001 based on a mountain of documentary evidence, including airline records, ATM withdrawals and hotel receipts. Those records show Atta crisscrossing the United States during this period--making only one overseas trip, an 11-day visit to Spain that didn't begin until six days after the date of the Iraqi memo.

For arguments say, let's presuppose that Suskind's claims are genuine and that the document was a forgery with White House origins. If true, then this administration is far more clueless and reckless than just being complicit in creating the forgery: they crafted a fake letter placing Atta in Baghdad when our own intelligence community had a "mountain of documentary evidence," verifiable and traceable, that Atta was actually in the U.S. If this is true, than not only was the Bush administration illegally manufacturing a false connections between al Qaeda, 9/11 and Iraq, but also neglecting and ignoring our own overwhelming evidence that the lead hijacker was actually on U.S. soil at the time. If true, it's a doubly criminal act of willful ignorance and conscience malfeasance in office.

Wow you think this administration lied willfully and on top of it couldn't keep it's damn stories straight?

The more I think about this information on this website, the more it looks credible.

With all of the cover ups going on here in the U.S., this is probably true.
