FWIW, Popping OBL has shaken up the ranks !
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia says an al-Qaida member on the kingdom's most wanted list called from abroad and turned himself in.

Interior Ministry's spokesman Maj. Gen. Mansour Al-Turki said in a statement Wednesday that Khaled Hathal Abdullah al-Atifi al-Qahtani contacted the security authorities from an undisclosed country and expressed his wish to come home.

Al-Turki did not say when al-Qahtani was brought back to the kingdom, but many from the group fled to Yemen after a crackdown.

Al-Qahtani was reunited with his family and his surrender will be taken into consideration while looking into his case, Al-Turki said.

Al-Qahtani is apparently the first al-Qaida operative to surrender after its leader Osama bin Laden was killed on Monday.

He saw that we got OBL's hard drive and he shit his pants. I'm guessing that pant sales in the ME are up in the last couple of days.

Wasn't he the courier? He was some guy who figured prominently in bin Laden getting caught, if I remember the name correctly. I wonder if his al quaeda buddies were planning on killing him in retaliation.
