Cole and Zarqawi

Money Cole quote from last fall:

"Personally, I'm not sure Zarqawi exists, so I'd be reluctant to send a thousand Marines after him."

IraqPundit runs with it. It also seems weird to have read Mary Ann Weaver's piece detailing a long and intricate love-hate relationship between Zarqawi and bin Laden and then to read Cole's dismissal of any connection between Zarqawi and al Qaeda at all.
