Missile Sting

Reuters yesterday published an article about the two Muslim clerics in New York that were caught in a sting trying to provide missiles to someone who they thought was a terrorist. I thought the last line in the article was interesting:

Another law enforcement source said the two were believed to be linked with Ansar al-Islam, an Iraqi militant group suspected of having ties to the al Qaeda network.

And here I thought Iraq and Al Qaeda had no ties.

UPDATE: made this same connection via an AP story.
