Did They REALLY Intend to Write That?

Coming from US News :
Masters of Chaos, by U.S. News Senior Writer Linda Robinson, published by PublicAffairs Books, tells the stories of the men who fight the nation's murky wars in the world's far corners. In Iraq, the Pentagon's special operations forces were critical to the capture of most of the top leaders of Saddam Hussein's regime, and they led two of three major battlefronts in the war to liberate Iraq. In one of them, in northern Iraq, Army Special Forces soldiers faced down 13 Iraqi divisions and attacked a camp believed to be harboring al Qaeda terrorists and other foreign jihadists, as well as a shadowy figure named Abu Musab Zarqawi. That battle, Operation Viking Hammer, turned out to be one of the most intense conflicts Special Forces have fought since Vietnam. [emphasis added]

But I thought, "no evidence exists that al-Qaida had strong ties to Saddam Hussein." It seems the MSM has let it slip that Colin Powell was correct when he stated before the UN that Saddam had offered sanctuary to various and sundry terrorists because the Green Berets were being shot at by the people the liberals say never existed.

NOTE: Contrary to how the AP spun the story linked above the 9/11 Commission and the Duelfer Report both found cooperation between Saddam and Al Quaeda, just not an operational link with 9/11 specifically. Close enough for me.
