May 11, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Rumors regarding the possible capture of the Afghan Taliban's founder, Mullah Omar are sweeping through DC.
First broken on Breitbart by Brad Thor, a national security expert with reputed excellent sources, the story has neither been confirmed nor denied officially by anyone in the Obama administration.
"At the end of March, US Military Intelligence was informed by US operatives working in the Af/Pak theater on behalf of the D.O.D. that Omar had been detained by Pakistani authorities. One would assume that this would be passed up the chain and that the Secretary of Defense would have been alerted immediately. From what I am hearing, that may not have been the case," the analyst, Brad Thor, said.

Omar created the Afghan Taliban in 1994 and is currently on the United States most wanted list for, as the Dept. of State's Rewards for Justice website makes clear, "Mullah Omar's Taliban regime in Afghanistan sheltered Osama bin-Laden and his al-Qai'da network in the years prior to the September 11 attacks."
