Where In The World Is Mohammed Omar?

Is Mullah Omar dead, alive, kidnapped by Western Intelligence, the ISI? No one seems to know, yet, or they’re not telling.

Afghanistan confirms of Taliban leader Mullah Omar’s disappearance

Afghanistan’s intelligence services on Monday confirmed that the one-eyed Taliban leader Mullah Omar, with a US$10 million bounty on his head, had disappeared from his Quetta hideout in Pakistan.

“We can confirm about the disappearance of Omar five days ago from his Pakistani hideout,” said Mashal, spokesman for the National Directorate of Security (NDS).

However, the NDS spokesman did not confirm a previous claim of an Afghan intelligence source of Omar’s assasination by Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency.

Taliban, meanwhile, brushed off rumors of their leader’s death or disappearance.

Obviously, capturing Mohammed Omar alive and holding him in Western custody would be the ideal state of affairs here. Shot dead or blown to smithereens would be the second best outcome, although some concrete proof of death would be nice to have. And who’s going to believe the Taliban that he’s still alive and free without proof of life? In any case, every day Omar stays missing is a good day for civilized people everywhere. If Mullah Omar disappears into thin air and there’s no one around that knows where he is, is he still the Taliban leader?

/I wonder how long you have to be missing in Pakistan before you’re declared legally dead?

If This Is Monday, It Must Be Jihadi Time

Is it just me or is there a pattern emerging involving a certain religion and terrorism?

New Jersey Men Arraigned On Terror Charges

Shortly after two New Jersey men were arraigned Monday on terror-related charges in Newark, N.J., Paul J. Fishman paused briefly on the steps of the U.S. District Courthouse in Newark. The top federal prosecutor in the state conceded that once again they had been lucky, this time with a pair of bumblers who allegedly pledged for jihad in Somalia but were being shadowed for years by FBI agents.

Indeed, it marked the third time in six months that terrorists were tripped up by their own ineptness.

But, Fishman said, “sophistication is not necessarily a measure of danger.” And, he warned, “we would be remiss if we didn’t pay attention to anyone who has the intention of do what these folks are alleged to have done.”

Mohamed Mahmood Alessa, 20, and 24-year-old Carlos Almonte, also known as Omar, were arrested Saturday night at JFK Airport in New York, reportedly hoping to join an extremist group in Somalia linked to the terror network Al Qaeda.

But they never had a chance. For three and a half years FBI agents followed their tiny cell in the New Jersey suburbs, sending an undercover operative in who even at one point won their approval to search their computer. It turned up documents promoting Osama bin Laden and violent jihad. And still, the FBI said, the young men continued to boast and train and arm themselves for war.
