New Photos of 9/11 Hijacker--Probably on a U.S. Plane
mysterious story of the day--via Gawker, which has discovered that the feds have had for over a decade two photos of lead 9/11 hijacker Atta apparently on a flight from Florida to Newark, just three weeks before 9/11. The photos are still classified, for some reason. Who took them and why unknown. Yikes.

Expert writers such as Lawrence Wright and Mark Mazzetti say this is news to them.
