Did WikiLeaks affect the timing of the OBL raid? From the LAT:

Several media outlets identified the courier Monday as Maulawi Abd Khaliq Jan based on a U.S. military assessment file on Libbi that was released by WikiLeaks last week. An administration official said that name was incorrect. Officials have so far declined to identify him.

So WikiLeaks publishes a name. The raid happens the very next weekend. Just saying. … Backfill: The Guardian (UK) has similar speculation.
