Gee, who'd o' thunk?

This from the generally useful "Terror Watch" column by Michael Isikoff and Mark Hosenball.
Newsweek, Dec. 17 - A widely publicized Iraqi document that purports to show that September 11 hijacker Mohammed Atta visited Baghdad in the summer of 2001 is probably a fabrication that is contradicted by U.S. law-enforcement records showing Atta was staying at cheap motels and apartments in the United States when the trip presumably would have taken place, according to U.S. law enforcement officials and FBI documents. ...

U.S. officials and a leading Iraqi document expert tell NEWSWEEK that the document is most likely a forgery - part of a thriving new trade in dubious Iraqi documents that has cropped up in the wake of the collapse of Saddam's regime.
The same document also makes reference to how al-Qaeda helped arrange a secret shipment from Niger to Iraq. Uh-huh. All it lacked was a description of Saddam Hussein chortling over how he tricked those stupid UN weapons inspectors.
