Britain says Pakistan is hiding Taliban chief
Christina Lamb, Kabul

THE British general commanding Nato troops in Afghanistan is to confront Pakistans president over his countrys support for the Taliban. Among the evidence amassed is the address of the Talibans leader in a Pakistani city.

Lieutenant-General David Richards will fly to Islamabad tomorrow to try to persuade Pervez Musharraf to rein in his military intelligence service, which Richards believes is training Taliban fighters to attack British troops. He will request that key Taliban leaders living in Pakistan be arrested.

The evidence compiled by American, Nato and Afghan intelligence includes satellite pictures and videos of training camps for Taliban soldiers and suicide bombers inside Pakistan.

Captured Taliban fighters and failed suicide bombers have confirmed that they were trained by the Pakistani intelligence service, known as the ISI. The information includes an address in Quetta where Mullah Omar, the Taliban leader, is said to live.

1. Mullah Omar
That would be the asshole that blew up the 3000 year old irreplaceable cliff carvings because they insulted Muslims.

4. Irreplaceable to whom?
The individual represented would chuckle at the notion of their permanence, and upbraid anyone foolish enough to become upset by their absence.

5. Mushy doesn't DARE make a move against the Taliban. I expect his
ass will soon be firmly planted here in the US soon, just so he doesn't end up dead.
