Right On Schedule

A couple weeks ago, I blogged on a New Republic report about the Bush administration asking Pakistan to deliver a High-Value Target - any important al Qaeda operative - in July, “‘it would be best if the arrest or killing of [any] HVT were announced on twenty-six, twenty-seven, or twenty-eight July’—the first three days of the Democratic National Convention in Boston.”

Guess what? Last Sunday, Pakistan quietly arrested Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, a Tanzanian wanted in the 1998 bombings at U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. "Ghailani--who is on the FBI's list of 22 most wanted terrorists, with a reward of up to $25 million on his head--was arrested Sunday in the eastern city of Gujrat along with at least 15 other people,"

Wolf Blitzer announced the arrest on CNN moments before John Kerry gave his acceptence speech. Right on schedule.
