> > I couldn't believe when I heard, on CNN (broudcast live over here in Australia) the presenter saying that they had a warrant to search some house in florida. What happened to keeping quiet? How can you expect these people to still be there after you just told the world what you're doing?

I doubt very much that anything like this is told to the press until the relevant action is or has already been taken. Give the FBI credit for a little intelligence.

If they expected to find people in the house, they'd have gone in with everything they had and we wouldn't have found out about it until afterwards. If they really *hadn't* been to the house before it was reported in the news, my guess is that they already knew the people were long gone and they just wanted to check for anything which could give any clues.
