“On March 19, 2003, they [Major Mark ‘Fuji’ Hoehn and Colonel Dave ‘Tooms’ Toomey] were selected to carry out an order issued directly from the Pentagon–a top-secret assassination attempt on Saddam Hussein, using GPS-guided bunker-busters. Though they did not know it, their mission was to be the opening strike of Operation Iraqi Freedom.”
