Afghan Taliban appoint new leader

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The Afghan Taliban confirmed on Wednesday that their leader Mullah Akhtar Mansour was killed in a U.S. drone strike last week and that they have appointed a successor — a scholar known for extremist views who is unlikely to back a peace process with Kabul.

The announcement came as a suicide bomber struck a minibus carrying court employees in the Afghan capital, killing at least 11 people, an official said. The Taliban promptly claimed responsibility for the attack.

In a statement sent to the media, the Taliban said their new leader is Mullah Haibatullah Akhundzada – MORE

  1. I can hear them in the caves now..

    “Lakhtar, that Obama is a murdering son of a whore, I tell you!”

    “Indeed, Achmed, he is that, and worse. But did you hear how he said “Tolly-bonn” on the TV? It was like the Call to Prayer, it was so beautiful!”

    Preening, Lame-duck, Drone-strike Asshole.

  2. WE NOW HAVE THE ANSWER TO “WHO’S NEXT?”

    ENJOY THAT SHIT-SEEKING MISSILE, GOAT-FUCKER!!

  3. Besides salary and health care, is life insurance included in the benefits package?

  4. Obama’s pronouncing of ‘Tolly-bonn’, sounds like he’s going fox hunting. Hmmm, I suppose he is, only hunting for rat-fox terrorist leaders.

    It must pain him to strike allies. Maybe he takes bids from rivals.
