I wrote a lot in early March of this year about the very odd arrest of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed in Pakistan. Now there are new doubts as to whether the man arrested was actually the real Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, doubts based in part on the photograph of the arrested man (does the man in these pictures, the real Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, look like the captured man, who appears to be having a bad hair day?). If the arrested man is not Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, is the whole interrogation that is supposedly going on some kind of elaborate American charade to prove that progress is being made on the war on terror?
