Channel 7 reporting Zazi to admit Al-Qaeda ties

According to Channel 7, Denver Post columnist Mike Littwin won't suffer another sleepless night worrying that federal-investigation subject Najibullah Zazi might have no involvement whatsoever in activities related to terrorism. Moments ago, the station posted a story asserting that Zazi "has admitted he has ties to al-Qaeda and is in negotiations to plead guilty to a terror charge." Channel 31 followed with a similar account shortly thereafter, while KOA, the Post and channels 4 and 9 don't have anything along these lines on their sites at this writing. It appears, then, that Channel 7 has won one of the biggest local media races of late if its piece is accurate -- always the most important "if."
