In direct contravention of my wife's explicit instructions, herewith I inaugurate my first blog. Long may it prosper.

This is important news: White House says Sept. 11 skyjacker had met Iraqi agent. Not that Atta met with Iraqi intelligence in Prague; we've known that for a while, and the Czechs - who have no axe to grind here - have stuck by their story for months. The news is that a White House official endorses the story for the first time. Sounds like we're preparing the ground for an alternative justification for an invasion of Iraq, in case Saddam succeeds in getting some kind of neutered UN inspection regime restored. Remember: Tony Blair and I think Joschka Fischer as well said that Iraqi involvement in September 11th would justify war on Iraq, a war they would join, but that to-date evidence of such involvement was lacking. Stay tuned.
