Po-TA-to / Po-TAH-to, al-Libby/al-Liby . . .
Here's a new twist in the story about the capture of Abu Farraj al-Libbi that I posted on yesterday. The Sunday Times said that it's al-Liby, not al-Libbi who's the al Qaeda big fish and that the hoopla over al-Libbi's capture was a case of mistaken identity.
But get this: The Times also said that al-Liby is the guy on the FBI short list who's wanted for the 1998 bombings of two US embassies in Africa. And yet, as I learned today via Loaded Mouth (via WAWBII? -- Thanks, Ron, for the link), al-Liby was captured and talking as far back as 2002!
So how come he's still on the FBI Most Wanted list?
