UBL Watch Best wrap up

UBL Watch

Best wrap up of the chaotic rumor mill re: whether Dubya is set to announce that UBL has been apprehended at his hastily convened press conference scheduled for 8:00 P.M EST. The key point, I think, is that he would have ensured network time if such an announcement were in the offing. Still, he could be being nonchalant knowing all networks would break to the newscast immediately if he announced that UBL was dead or caught. Meanwhile, others speculate he is going to issue a final, final ultimatum to Saddam for later in March or that this is simply damage control for the alleged set-backs of the past couple of weeks (ostensible Iraqi cooperation, Turkish parliamentary vote, Franco-Russian veto threats etc). Regardless, we'll know soon enough.

UPDATE: ABC's take.
