Well, you have to read all the way down to paragraphs 20 and 21 of the AP story about the Ghailani arrest that's posted on the New York Times Web site, but there it is:

Hayyat announced the arrest after midnight in Pakistan in an interview with Geo television, an unusually late hour considering the arrests were made Sunday and authorities had known but not revealed the man's identity for some days.

Pakistani leaders have rejected allegations they time the announcements of major terror arrests for maximum impact....

As far as I'm concerned, any story on this that doesn't mention the convenient timing is displaying media bias.

("After midnight" in Karachi, Pakistan, means sometime after 3:00 this afternoon, if I read this correctly.)
