The Female of the Species....

ABC reports on the arrest of Al Qaeda's "Mata Hari".

When she was arrested in Afghanistan last month, Aafia Siddique allegedly had in her possession maps of New York, a list of potential targets that included the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, the subway system and the animal disease center on Plum Island, detailed chemical, biological and radiological weapon information that has been seen only in a handful of terrorist cases, as well as a thumb drive packed with emails, ABC News has learned.

This is a big haul. The woman, an MIT graduate, is plugged into nearly every phase of al Qaeda's global network of terror plots and now the FBI is too. What is significant is that they have decided to go public with this. That means that they have already milked her for as much information as they are likely to get.

Nice catch!
