Hottest news this morning:
TEHRAN, Iran – Pentagon (news – web sites) and Pakistani officials on Saturday denied an Iranian state radio report that Osama bin Laden (news – web sites) was captured in Pakistan's border region with Afghanistan (news – web sites) "a long time ago."
The director of Iran radio's Pashtun service, Asheq Hossein, said he had two sources for the report. The radio quoted its reporter as saying bin Laden had been in custody for a period of time, but a U.S. announcement of the capture was being withheld by President Bush (news – web sites) until closer to the November election.
"Osama bin Laden has been arrested a long time ago, but Bush is intending to use it for propaganda maneuvering in the presidential election," he said.
Somebody over there must have read my Bin Laden's Capture and the Election post from two days ago and spread the meme. Muhahaha!
