Using ADSI as datasource in MS-SQL Reporting Service for data-driven subscription or filtering

First time trying goes.

I've got some reports on which the data must be specific to the region that a user is from, the user is in a group in AD that specifies which region they are from.  I know I can get their User!UserId on the report - I've even got a nifty AD web service that returns AD groups based on user id.  How do I get the report to hit the web service for the groups and use the returned xml to filter the data?

I'm going down the path of using AD as an additional datasource - still looking for any assistance to speed up my progress...I think it SHOULD be possible for a reporting service to consume another web service, but I haven't been able to find a good reference yet.
