Mohammed/Muhammed Rahim: Al Qaeda biggie captured!!!
Update: The DoD press release about the capture is here.
Update: It looks like he was captured off the street in Lahore back in August 2007. You gotta wonder where the CIA has been keeping him stashed since then...
Al-Qaeda and Taliban have received another setback when their two important aides were arrested from different places in Pakistan, sources said Wednesday. Muhammad Rahim was arrested few days back from Lahore while Sheikh Ilyas Khel ( Bin Ladens personal translator ) was netted from the general bus-stand in Peshawar, the sources maintained.
From the The Belmont Club: Genius work.
Two men in personal contact with Bin Laden were arrested in close conjunction in time but widely separated in space.
