What's In The Notebook?

Abu Faraj al-Libbi, aka Al Qaeda #3, apparently was unable to destroy a notebook containing valuable contact information fast enough. According to an ABC News report:

Sources said officials believe al-Libbi's seized notebook contains "hot" contact information. They said officials are hopeful the notebook contains useful information because al-Libbi was stunned when he was captured.

One senior official described al-Libbi as "shocked" and enraged.

"He thought he was invincible," the source said. "He was caught with his pants down. This was not the time and place of his choosing."

Al-Libbi was trying to destroy the notebook when he was apprehended, multiple sources said.

Here's hoping this notebook yields tons of critical Al Qaeda operations data. I'm quite sure if the notebook had no value to us, he would have spent more time running and less time ripping.
