Speaking on Deep Background, the Press Secretary whispered:


The FBI has identified a teenager as the author of a damaging virus-like 
infection unleashed on the Internet and plans to arrest him early Friday, a U.S. 
official confirmed Thursday.

It always worries me when law enforcement send out a press statement
that they are going to arrest a particular individual "in the future".

Hey, it's hard enough to schedule the arrests for prime news
coverage; you gotta get the news teams in place for the perp. walk,
write up the off-the-cuff remarks the lead Feebee is going to
read, etc..
