The Link? More on that Saddam/Atta connection Flyer referred to. From an official Iraqi memo written in July 2001, sent to Saddam from his intelligence chief:
Mohammed Atta, an Egyptian national, came with Abu Ammer [the real name behind this Arabic alias remains a mystery] and we hosted him in Abu Nidal's house at al-Dora under our direct supervision."

We arranged a work program for him for three days with a team dedicated to working with him...He displayed extraordinary effort and showed a firm commitment to lead the team which will be responsible for attacking the targets that we have agreed to destroy.

Emphasis mine. What could those targets have been, now? Zero coverage, naturally, in the U.S. media. Original story here.
