Why isn’t the accusation coming the Pulitzer-winner Ron Suskind in his new book getting the attention it deserves from the investigative media?

The summary goes as follows: the White House had concocted a fake letter from Saddam Hussein’s intelligence director, Tahir Jalil Habbush al-Tikriti,  backdated to July 1, 2001, that said Mohammad Atta, the believed leader of the 9/11 attacks, had trained in Iraq. The CIA was supposedly told to make it happen.

These heavyweight allegations have been meekly denied by the White House and George Tenet, then CIA director, but besides that is simply fell out of media’s attention. Beijing effect, perhaps.
