    Secret Joint Raid Captures Talibanís Top Commander

    WASHINGTON ó The Talibanís top military commander was captured several days ago in Karachi, Pakistan, in a secret joint operation by Pakistani and American intelligence forces, according to American government officials.

    The commander, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, is an Afghan described by American officials as the most significant Taliban figure to be detained since the American-led war in Afghanistan started more than eight years ago. He ranks second in influence only to Mullah Muhammad Omar, the Talibanís founder and a close associate of Osama bin Laden before the Sept. 11 attacks.
    They are saying that this could be a turning point in the Afghan War. Let's keep kicking their asses, and taking them out, and maybe, just maybe, our troops in Afghanistan can be home by next year.
