Joe Wilson, badass?

So I'm reading Juan Cole, and he just throws this out in an offhand manner:
Ambassador Joe Wilson, who once dared Saddam to hang him while wearing a rope around his neck while acting ambassador in Baghdad in fall of 1990, was the first to let the American people know that the Bush administration lied about Iraq's alleged attempt to purchase uranium yellowcake from Niger.

Has anyone else heard this this story before? If I had so much as touched Buddy Revell's jacket, I would work it into every conversation I had. How can Wilson sit down for an interview with Katie Couric and not say, "Some weather we're having, isn't it? It reminds me of the day I had a noose around my neck daring Saddam Hussein to hang me."

Excellent Buddy Revell reference.
