Captured Taliban spokesperson says leader is dead


www.ctv.ca

U.S. and Pakistani officials have said they were almost certain that the chief, Baitullah Mehsud, had been killed in the Aug. 5 strike, but at least three Taliban operatives, including the detainee, Maulvi Umar, had called media organizations following the attack to say he was still alive.

Umar's comments -- relayed by an intelligence official who took part in the questioning -- would be first admission by the Taliban that Mehsud was dead. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

We're taking out their leadership with RC planes. They are panicking, their lines of communication are being targeted and disrupted. We have developed proper strategy for dealing with their leadership, but poor European support for the mission and NATO member caveats (Again, Europeans...) in Afghanistan prevent the mission from succeeding. I am glad the Predators are so effective, the knowledge of unmanned killer drones circling over head must be unnerving.

We should double the number of predator drones over there.
They will be afraid to stick their heads out.
If Germans will not fight, then they should hire some mercenaries
to fight for them.
