A couple of loose ends were tied from big stories earlier this week. ABC's Brian Ross reminded us that on Monday Vice President Dick Cheney had put pressure on President Pervez Musharraf to get tough on Taliban guerrillas training in Pakistan. On that very day, Ross (no link) now revealed, Pakistani authorities were in the process of arresting Mullah Obaidullah in the northwestern city of Quetta. Obaidullah is the reputed third in command to Taliban leader Mullah Omar and "very close" to Osama bin Laden himself. "He may well know the locations of both of those very much wanted men," Ross speculated. "The arrangements they may have thought they had with Pakistan are off and there are major operations under way as we speak."
And CBS was the only network to follow-up on the third day of fluctuations on Wall Street. The upshot of the day's trading left prices modestly lower, Anthony Mason admitted, but they closed that way after "a whipsaw day" opened with "a panicked plunge."
