He’s talking….Damn. Too bad they didn’t have to beat the shit out of him before he sang.
A senior official tells ABC News that “several days” ago U.S. and Pakistani intelligence captured the Taliban’s Number 2, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, and he is providing intelligence.
“This operation was an enormous success,” the official told ABC News. “It is a very big deal.”
Baradar is second to only Mullah Mohammed Omar in the Afghan Taliban, and is the commander of the organization on a daily basis.
……A U.S. counterterrorism official, while refusing to confirm the news of Baradar’s capture, told ABC News that “if he were taken off the battlefield, it would deal a major setback to the Afghan Taliban and be a personal blow to Mullah Omar, who has relied heavily on him for years.”
Baradar is essentially the man in charge of the Taliban.
We’ll see what kind, if any, effect this has on Taliban operations.
