Mohammed Atta, who is suspected of being one of the hijackers aboard the first plane that struck the World Trade Center on Tuesday, met earlier this year with an Iraqi intelligence official in Europe, according to a U.S. government source.
Former CIA Director James Woolsey has been very public about his belief that the high degree of coordination involved in the attack suggested a state sponsor such as Iraq must be involved. But one U.S. official said there was no clear evidence that any specific country was behind the plot.
?There?s lots of little bits and threads and hints and nuggets out there, however is there some compelling evidence of state sponsorship? Not at this time. Are we looking at that? Sure among a thousand different things,? an anonymous official says.
