You all remember Annie Jacobsen, whose article about Northwest flight 327 set the blogosphere abuzz last summer. Don’t miss her latest installment, in which she recounts a visit she got from four federal Homeland Security Department officials. Here’s the most interesting part:

For the record, I explained, I had never heard of the James Woods incident either. [In case you’re not aware, the actor James Woods flew on an American Airlines flight from Boston to Los Angeles one month prior to 9/11. Alarmed by the behavior of a group of four Middle Eastern men, Woods summoned the pilot and told him that he was “concerned the men were going to hijack the plane.” A report was filed with the FAA on Woods’ behalf but, tragically, no one followed up with Woods or the men. A few days after 9/11, several federal agents showed up in Woods’ kitchen. Woods can’t talk about what was said — he believes his testimony will be used in the trial of the supposed 20th hijacker, Zacarias Moussaoui– but, in an interview with Bill O’Reilly, Woods revealed that his flight “was a rehearsal [for 9/11] with four men.”]

Standing in my kitchen, one of the agents said, “What I can tell you is this: Mohammed Atta was one of the passengers on that flight with James Woods.” (Apparently, this information has never been made public.)

Read the whole thing.

Yes, we all recall when James Woods came forward after the 9/11 attacks to recount his suspicions about the dry run on his flight (Jeff Quinton sends this transcript as a reminder). The new news is that a federal agent revealed Atta’s presence on the flight.
