This is probably the "October Surprise" that the Bush spin machine (Karl

From the article:
The Bush administration said it
was still trying to confirm the report.
"But we've always said there were ties between Zarqawi and al-Qaida, which
underscores once again why Iraq is the central front in the war on terror,"
White House spokesman Trent Duffy said in Washington.
The Bush administration has created
this situation, however I'm sure the administration will paint it as
confirmation for their misplaced reasons for the Iraq invasion.
