Better Late Than Never

On page 13A of today's SAEN a story reports that Pakistani President Musharraf claims that his troops almost caught bin Laden about 10 months ago, but that the trail has gone cold now. The article also reports something SAEN Watch first reported Monday, that Pakistan believes al-Qaida has been broken:
Musharraf and other Pakistani leaders say the silence is a sign they've destroyed al-Qaida's network here.

Wow, they devoted an entire sentence, 16 words, to the destruction of al-Qaida. What, they couldn't throw two sentences together about the destruction of the perpetrators of 9/11? Yeah, that's not newsworthy. Moreover, you'd never know it from the story's headline "Pakistani chief says his men almost bagged bin Laden."
