#1 Fox News (0933, Central Time):

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Two sons of Usama bin Laden were arrested in southeastern Afghanistan in a joint operation involving Pakistani and U.S. forces, Pakistan's provincial home minister Sanaullah Zehri said.

"They were arrested from Rabat area in Afghanistan," he told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. He did not identify the sons, but said that seven other Al Qaeda men were killed in the operation.

#2 I guess the "Iraq distracts us from the War on Terror" thing is down the toilet now!

#3 Yeah..but maybe they are dead. "In Washington, U.S. counterterrorism officials strongly disputed reports saying bin Laden's sons were captured. They said they had no information that would suggest any of the sons had been detained."

Yeah, so they weren't captured or detained. We can assume they didn't let them go. Sounds to me like they are dead

Oh, and now I just noticed this one.... ISLAMABAD, (Reuters) - "Two sons of Osama bin Laden (news - web sites) were hurt in a raid in Afghanistan (news - web sites), a Pakistan official said Friday." Hmmmm...and just how bad are their injuries? Perhaps they are "grave".

#4 Confirmed via CNBC. President Bush to make a statement later today. ( there might be more to this that what we know so far)

#5 Jeff - the "Iraq distracts us from the War on Terror" thing is down the toilet. But say hello to "the War on Terror distracts us from Iraq." I predict that it won't be long before we hear that...

#6 Hey Fred, could you sneak in and wrap a around Becky's Yahoo link? Mozilla tries to render it unbroken, which makes the page wider than my screen :-(
