Makes you understand why they keep people in these secret prisons, they really don't know what they are doing.

They are so quick to claim victory for a good PR push that they don't wait until verification comes through. It's the same with Bin Laden contact, you'll see headline news around the world that Bin Laden has spoken, i think the last one was telling Saudi's to uprise against the Royal Family, yet they never have those tapes authenticated before they report them and they never actually report if those tapes we're verified, post global headline.

This is just proof of one mistake actually being admitted too after the fact, not sure if it's been reported in US press yet. I've only seen it in Australia's news, Indian times and UK times. Hopefully they address it on Fox, CNN etc etc.

"Bush called him a “top general” and “a major facilitator and chief planner for the Al- Qaeda network”. Condoleezza Rice, secretary of state, said he was “a very important figure”. Yet the backslapping in Washington and Islamabad has astonished European terrorism experts, who point out that the Libyan was neither on the FBI’s most wanted list, nor on that of the State Department “rewards for justice” programme."

Sounds like a case of mistaken RANK, not identity.


From the article:

"Whatever his importance, al-Libbi is the sixth Al-Qaeda figure to have been caught in Pakistan, suggesting that the country is now the organisation’s centre of operations. The interior minister, Aftab Khan Sherpao, conceded that Bin Laden and his deputy might be hiding in a Pakistani city."

Oh well, he's still a top figure.

He's with AL-QEADA, we gotta stop them!!! We don't need to verify stories about al-Qaeda. We're fighting a dangerous enemy, so we gotta use different tactics to get 'em. And as long as we leave our borders wide open, they'll never get us...
