Thoughts of an American Centrist

Are we getting close yet?

Let's hope so.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - The man thought to be al-Qaida's operations commander, and who might know where Osama bin Laden is hiding, has been arrested in Pakistan, the government announced Wednesday.

The arrest of Abu Farraj al-Libbi, a Libyan who is also wanted in two attempts to assassinate Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharraf, is seen by U.S. officials as significant because of his alleged control over the daily operations of al-Qaida.

So is Al Quaeda's infrastructure crumbling, or is this just an isolated incident? Either way, congrats to the brave men who caught this guy!
