Fascinating story (via Genfoods) about the recently-captured terrorist Khalid Shaikh Mohammed. According to all of the reports at the time of his capture, Mohammed was described as the number two man behind Osama bin Laden. Writes Debra Pickett in the Chicago Sun-Times:

A month after the Sept. 11 attacks, President Bush released a list of the world's most-wanted terrorists. There were 22 names on it. Khalid Shaikh Mohammed was No. 22.

And the list wasn't alphabetical.

Interestingly, information on the FBI website still seems to support this. There's Mohammed, way down at the bottom of the page (Osama's in the top left corner). Also confirmed here and here (though he's 18 of 22). Check out the links because they may move him up to cohere with White House reports.
