More reports on Al Qaeda allies active in "Kurdistan" (northern Iraq Kurdish autonomous zone). A PUK spokesman said his organization's intelligence wing had evidence confirming "the existence of a facility experimenting with poison and chemical agents to be used in terrorist acts," in northern Iraq. The "facility" is run by the radical Islamist Ansar al-Islam group. The "facility" is reportedly fortified. Sources indicate it is "near the Iranian border." USAF targeteers, take note.
