I wrote below that "I feel as though I know Muhammad Naeem Noor Khan quite intimately at this point." Well, guess I was wrong about that one.

I just read this story from Saturday about the "deep mole" in Al Qaeda -- and how the U.S. blew his cover. I wrote a column for Slate recently about Khan, the computer geek picked up in Pakistan who's been ratting out his Al Qaeda comrades. Now we learn he was working undercover -- that is, until American government sources confirmed his identity to the press. Nice one, dipshits.

UPDATE: Worth reading the comments thread. The American don't appear to have blown his cover, but somebody did. The last word on the subject, at least for some time, is probably this Salon piece.
