Taliban announces surrender in Swat Valley after leader Maulana Fazlullah 'arrested'


www.telegraph.co.uk

Taliban announces surrender in Swat Valley after leader Maulana Fazlullah arrested.

Its announcement, made on one of its pirate radio stations, came as its charismatic leader Maulana Fazlullah was reported to be surrounded by Pakistani troops, and there were claims that he had in fact already been arrested.

Their collapse in Swat, if confirmed, will deal a serious blow to the Taliban's Pakistan leadership which has been in disarray since its leader Baitullah Mehsud was killed in an American drone attack in north Waziristan, close to the Afghan border, last month.

f they are so goddamn sure, why don't they just kick the door in.
I mean, America in WWII wasn't scared to rush.

Sure "limit American casualties", but hundreds of civilians a month are dying from these attacks.....


better them that the soldiers?

I'm not so worried about us doing attacks in Afghan/Pakistan, as long as they try and keep civilian casualties down. At least we know some of the bad guys are really in that area, and had camps there, unlike Iraq.
