“Al-Libbi’s Notebook Believed to Contain Valuable Contact Information, Source Says,” from ABCNews, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
U.S. officials are working feverishly to decipher numbers and apparent codes in a notebook retrieved from suspected al Qaeda leader Abu Faraj al-Libbi, ABC News has learned.
Al-Libbi — believed to be third in command of al Qaeda leader after Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri — was arrested by Pakistani authorities on Monday.
He is suspected of leading two failed assassination attempts on the life of Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf.
Sources said officials believe al-Libbi’s seized notebook contains “hot” contact information. They said officials are hopeful the notebook contains useful information because al-Libbi was stunned when he was captured.
Between this notebook and Zarqawi’s laptop, we could be on to something.
