News Trickle 

Yahoo! News - Pakistanis May Be Near al-Qaida's No. 2:
Pakistani forces believe they have cornered and perhaps wounded Osama bin Laden (news - web sites)'s deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri, in a major battle near the Afghan border, an area where many believe the world's most wanted terrorist has been hiding, three senior Pakistani officials said Thursday.
This reminds me of a joke. A young man at boot camp receives a letter from his brother at home telling him that his dog is dead. He writes back suggesting that his brother might consider being a little less blunt next time. He suggests breaking the news gradually. Perhaps he could have written one letter saying the dog was on the roof, and they can't get him down. The next day, another letter saying the dog slipped and fell off, and they are concerned that he might not survive. Finally a third letter telling him that the dog had not made it. This way, he could acclimate himself and prepare for the hard news.

The next day he gets another letter from his brother. "Mom's on the roof, and we can't get her down."

Ladies and gentlemen, bin Laden is on the roof, and they can't get him down.
