I was doing crossword from NY Times, from Mon, Feb 11, 2019 by Howard Barkin + Will Shortz and I got the following clue.
The answer is "HADAT". However, I can not find definition for HADAT that fits the clue. Various links (ex. reference) shows me this is a common word used in crosswords.
Why is the answer "HADAT and how does the clue "went after" fit?
