Pakistani security agents have denied that an American al Qaeda promulgator with a $1 million US bounty on his head has been arrested, saying there has been an identity mix-up with another arrested suspect. Yesterday some Pakistani officials said that California-born Adam Gadahn had been arrested on the outskirts of Karachi. "Our initial impression was that the guy was Adam Gadahn but that information now looks incorrect," an unnamed official told Reuters. The real man under detention is also believed to be an American, going by the name of Abu Yahya, and his nationality is thought to have sparked to confusion. The official declined to confirm the identity of the detainee and said "We don’t know yet how big a catch he is". The battle against al Qaeda-linked Taliban militants is a tough one in Pakistan, and the country is resisting US pressure to launch military offensives against Afghan Taliban groups based in the Pashtun lands. Despite ruling out a major offensive, Pakistani authorities have successfully arrested several senior Taliban members in recent weeks.

Tragedy in art, from Ancient Greece to Breaking Bad, resists all our efforts to tie reality up in a neat bow, to draw some edifying lesson from it. Instead it confronts us with our own limitations, leaving us scrabbling in the rubble of certainty to figure out what's next.
- Why democracy has been unpopular with philosophers
- Tragedy's reminder that the past isn't finished with us
- …and why we need art in the first place
We're talking Ghost in the Shell type of stuff.
Maybe you watched Ghost in the Shell and maybe afterwards you and your friend had a conversation about whether or not you would opt in for some bionic upgrades if that was possible - like a liver that could let you drink unlimitedly or an eye that could give you superhuman vision. And maybe you had differing opinions but you concluded that it's irrelevant because the time to make such choices is far in the future. Well, it turns out, it's two years away.
