    Pakistan Taliban Leader Dead

    As Taliban officials confirmed that notorious militant leader Baitullah Mehsud has died in a U.S. air strike, Pakistani government authorities headed to the site Friday in an effort to get confirmation of the death.

    Kafayat Ullah, an aide to Mehsud, told The Associated Press that Mehsud and one of his wives were killed by a U.S. attack on Wednesday but declined to provide further details.

    "I confirm that Baitullah Mehsud and his wife died in the American missile attack in South Waziristan," Ullah said.

    Three Pakistani intelligence officials have also said Mehsud is believed to have died in an air strike at the home of his father-in-law in Nardusai in South Maziristan. A U.S. intelligence official also said there were strong indications that Mehsud had died, including communications interceptions.

    Pakistani intelligence officials reported Friday there are indications that Taliban factions may also be holding a council meeting on Friday to choose a new leader to replace Mehsud.
    Although the government is yet to confirm it at the ground level, hopes are high. It's nice to see that the war effort is ridding the region of the unsavoury types after all.

    Good and Iím glad we got him. Now lets get the hell out of Afghanistan and stop trying to win the hearts and minds of Muslim who are obligated per their religion to hate us no matter what we do for them and concentrate instead only on killing OBL and AQ. I would also advocate that we donít try to kill the Taliban because it would necessitate that we kill 75 percent or more of the Muslims living in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    However, I would advocate that we target and eradicate the heads of the snake, namely the kleptocratic ruling Mullahs of Iran and the House of Saud. Nevertheless, the USA will never go after the House of Saud because the Saudis own a bigger interest of the US government than even the American people. Especially the State Department, the House of Saud has turned our State Department into one big gigantic lobby lobbying for Saudi special interests. Itís truly pathetic.

    I'm really confused by your post as a whole. Quite a few contradicting ideas if you ask me. First you want us to continue killing "OBL" and "AQ" but you insist on doing it outside of Afghanistan. How should we go about accomplishing this task then? You dont want us to destroy the Taliban b/c IYO 75% of the Muslim world are savages brainwashed into strapping semtex to their chests and walking into an elementry schools built from the hearts, minds and $$ of the American tax-payers....really mis-informed there my friend. But then you go on to say that you feel we should target the high-level religious leaders of Iran and the government of Fraud introducing an unprovoked war with a country desperetly attempting to aquire nuclear weapons and another with one of the strongest positions in the oil market to date......I bet you were against the war in Iraq too.

    The opium growers who funnel cash to the Taliban are now on the kill list. Wouldn't be surprised to find the name Karzai on that list.

    THIS is how the Afghan war should have been prosecuted 8 years ago. Guess it proves once again that while Republicans are best at talking about war, it takes a Democrat to actually prosecute one.
