    Pakistan Detains Senior Officer on Suspicion of Militant Ties

    ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — A serving brigadier general in the Pakistani Army has been detained on suspicion of links with an extremist group, according to an army spokesman.
    The detention of the officer, Brig. Gen. Ali Khan, raises serious concerns about the infiltration of elements sympathetic to Islamic extremists in the higher ranks of the army. While the lower ranks of the army, air force and navy have long been known to have elements sympathetic to the Taliban and extremist organizations, the arrest of General Khan is the first known arrest of a senior army official.
    “He was due to retire next month,” Mr. Ahmad added. “What could he do in the next fifteen or so days?”

    We have our own versions, here's one:

    Kenneth Melson, acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, is expected to resign under pressure, perhaps in the next day or two, in the wake of the controversy over Operation Fast and Furious, two senior federal law enforcement sources said Monday.
