UNDERCOVER QUESTIONS....I'm surprised that the story about the U.S. blowing an undercover operation against al-Qaeda isn't getting more play this morning, either in the blogosphere or the mainstream media, but maybe that's because it's a weekend. However, another reason might be that the story is still ambiguous. Here are the key open questions:

  1. Who provided Mohammad Naeem Noor Khan's name to the New York Times last Monday? Was it a "U.S. official" or someone else?

  2. Did anyone ask the Times not to print Khan's name? If not, why not?

  3. Was Khan's undercover operation still active on Monday? Or had it run its course and was over anyway?

Hopefully we'll find get some answers to these questions next week.
