The Kurds are challenging the Pentagon's account of Saddam Hussein's capture, insisting that it was they who provided the vital intelligence that led the Americans to the former dictator's spider hole south of Tikrit.

It seems that on this occasion the PUK's intelligence was better than it was on April 2nd, when the Kurdish peshmerga soldier accompanying my team to the town of Kifri told us categorically that the land he wanted us to park our vehicle on wasn't mined.

I guess you can't be right all the time.
