Last month, I reported that the notorious Taliban leader, Mullah Omar, had been captured by the Pakistanis, as reported by Oliver North. Yet, nothing more was said about it, so I figured he was misinformed and took down my post. I may have been wrong. This story is still circulating. Only time will tell if it's legit.

Iranian TV Confirms: Pakistanis Have Mullah Omar
by Brad Thor
"One month ago we broke the exclusive story of Mullah Omar’s capture.
Additional confirmations have come from The Jawa Report, Oliver North, Milblogger Baba Tim, Blackfive.net, and even The Nation.
Then, two weeks ago, Newsweek published a report that the Taliban is in serious turmoil because Mullah Omar is MIA.
Today, Iranian State Television reports that the Pakistanis are indeed harboring Mullah Omar.
Mullah Abdul Salam Hanafi, a former senior member of the Taliban and governor of central Urozgan Province under the Taliban regime, is quoted as saying:
'Pakistani security forces are harboring the fugitive Taliban leader, Mullah Omar in Karachi.'
As the tempo of Omar stories increases, so does the pressure on Pakistan and its Inter-Services Intelligence agency (ISI), as well as the Obama administration and the CIA to deal with the Omar issue.
My prognostication is that sooner, rather than later, we’ll hear that Omar was taken out in a successful drone strike. This will allow the Pakistanis to avoid having to admit they ever had him in the first place (thereby circumventing Taliban reprisals and large scale rioting across Pakistan) and it will also allow the Obama Administration to claim they were able to do something the Bush Administration couldn’t — kill Mullah Omar.
However it comes down, I don’t expect to ever see Mullah Omar alive again."
