After two articles were posted in Andrew Breitbart’s, Big Government, on May 13, 2010, the White House and it’s duplicitous press corps slept.
How could the capture of the supreme leader of the Taliban, Mullah Mohammed Omar not be major news? Why the silence from the White House, the denial from the State Department from Hillary Clinton, did the administration order a complete media black out of this amazing story?
Lt. Colonel Oliver North confirmed that Taliban leader and Osama bin Laden ally, Mullah Mohammed Omar has been captured. Big Government broke the exclusive news of Omar’s capture Monday evening.
According to Colonel North, the Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate (ISI) who placed him under house arrest in what they call “community care” picked up Omar in Karachi on March 27th.
Per North’s sources, “[Omar] has since been transferred to a secret ISI lock-up under the Pakistani euphemism: “institutional care.”
North goes on to state, “According to several reports, all of this information was confirmed to U.S. officials by a senior Pakistani military officer ‘several weeks ago.’’ A fact also broken in Monday’s Big Government exclusive.
Last weekend, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton created a “diplomatic firestorm” when she indicted Pakistani cooperation with the U.S. in the hunt for Al Qaeda and Taliban operatives.
Said Clinton, “I believe somewhere in this government are people who know where Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda is (sic), where Mullah Omar and the leadership of the Afghan Taliban is (sic).
North hopes the Secretary was “dissembling,” because intelligence sources here in the U.S. and Afghanistan have informed him that Pakistani officials “know exactly where Mullah Omar is: in the hands of the ISI.” Driving the point home, North added, “This should not be news to the U.S. Secretary of State.”
So what’s at stake and why did the Pakistanis grab Omar? As was reported earlier today, and as Colonel North confirms, everything is revolving around the so-called peace jirga between the Karzai government and the Taliban.
“The ISI intends to be in the driver’s seat when the ‘Peace Talks’ get underway in Afghanistan later this month,” says North. “The ISI officers calling the shots know Mullah Omar is the best bargaining chip they have.”
Of additional note in North’s reporting are the predictions that an immediate, Vietnam-style, “cease fire” may be a prerequisite for talks, as might a demand that Omar be granted safe haven in Saudi Arabia. The latter likely being an untenable requirement for the United States. Anti-war progressives in congress would gladly approve.
One thing, is certain. As North puts it, there is a “near-total lack of intelligence on what’s really happening on the ground on either side of the Af-Pak border.” What little we are getting doesn’t seem to be getting to the appropriate people.
In light of this confirmation of Mullah Omar’s apprehension, an entire new set of questions now arise and have already started being asked around Washington. In particular, who knew what and when did they know it?
The Omar capture is only the tip of the iceberg. Expect to hear a lot more in the days and weeks to come.
April 18, 2012 Fox News reports, Taliban signals willingness to talk Peace.
The supreme leader of the Taliban, Mullah Mohammed Omar, has indicated that he and his followers may be willing to hold peace talks with western politicians.
The supreme leader of the Taliban has indicated that he and his followers may be willing to hold peace talks with western politicians.
In an interview with The Sunday Times of London, two of the movement’s senior Islamic scholars have relayed a message from the Quetta shura, the Taliban’s ruling council, that Mullah Omar no longer aims to rule Afghanistan. They said he was prepared to engage in “sincere and honest” talks.
A senior U.S. military source said the remarks reflected a growing belief that a “breakthrough” was possible. “There is evidence from many intelligence sources [that] the Taliban are ready for some kind of peace process,” the source said.
At a meeting held at night deep inside Taliban-controlled territory, the Taliban leaders told this newspaper that their military campaign had only three objectives: the return of sharia (Islamic law), the expulsion of foreigners and the restoration of security.
Will this hypocritical administration agree to the re-establishment of Sharia Law and it’woeful murderous treatment of women? Most likely. Why, because they are gutless cowards.
“[Mullah Omar] is no longer interested in being involved in politics or government,” said Mullah “Abdul Rashid”, the elder of the two commanders, who used a pseudonym to protect his identity.
On May 13, 2010, I originally reported this story is solid, and I still believe the military is sending the Obama administration a calling card. The card is saying, we aren’t sending you this high value detainee because in your politically correct mind, you lack an understanding that we are at war with Islamic terrorists.
Why send him to the United States so Eric Holder can immediately read him his rights and and get him a lawyer to make sure he stays silent? The military may be saying no thank you, our methods of interrogation work quite well in Pakistan.
Thus, the supreme commander is singing like a canary.
If we can’t believe Col North whom can we believe? Certainly not voices from the current administration that continually lie. Why the cover-up by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, why the media and White House silence?
Will the mainstream media eventually be replaced by the Santa Ana Examiner and other credible blog sources? They have no fear in exposing the truth. Is there any wonder this administration is attempting to control the Internet thus probably shutting down the voice of dissent?
Nothing can be put above or below this administration when it comes to the desecration of our Constitutional Republic. Random thoughts while observing the passing parade, I’m J.C.
