“I Know Nozzing.”

Good post at Democracy Project on what the 9/11 Commission didn’t know and when they didn’t know it. That would be up until about Thursday.

…the unimpeachable Able Danger report, reluctantly acknowledged to be correct by 911 Commission staffers, may well blow the lid off the ability of the Know Nothings to continue to cloak the truth. For the movements of Atta prior to the terrorist attack, if acknowledged, will support statements by the Czech Republic that link Atta, and hence the al Qaeda attack on America, irrefutably to Saddam’s covert intelligence operatives. This is something that surfaced very soon after the attack. The former Czech deputy foreign minster, later ambassador to the UN, gave statements that he personally expelled a high raking Iraqi embassy official in Prague for being a covert foreign intelligence agent after the latter was discovered having met with Atta in the international lounge at the Prague airport in August 2001. There the Iraqi transferred a large amount of cash to Atta, sufficient to fund the completion of the September 11 attack.

One pillar of the criticism of the Battle of Iraq has been the lack of Iraqi involvement in 9/11. I disagree with this point of view for many reasons, but if Saddam did have some involvement with 9/11wil those critics concede that they were wrong? That they “lied?”

Probably not. They’ll say they acted on the best intelligence they had at the time – just like the coalition of the willing did regarding WMD in Iraq.
