Twice Dead Taliban Faux-Leader Vows To Attack D.C. "Soon"
Pakistani Taliban Commander Also Claims Responsibility For Attack On Police Academy
http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/03/31/terror/main4905657.shtml
DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan, March 31, 2009


(CBS/AP)  The top Taliban commander in Pakistan promised an assault on Washington "soon" - one he says will "amaze" the world.

"Soon we will launch an attack in Washington that will amaze everyone in the world," Baitullah Mehsud told The Associated Press by phone.

Mehsud also claimed responsibility for Monday's attack on a police academy outside the eastern Pakistani city of Lahore, saying it was in retaliation for U.S. missile strikes against militants along the Afghan border.

Mehsud and other Pakistani Taliban militants are believed to be based in the country's lawless areas near the border with Afghanistan, where they have stepped up their attacks throughout Pakistan.

One year ago, CBS News security correspondent Bob Orr reported that U.S. intelligence officials were increasingly concerned that Mehsud could eclipse even Osama bin Laden as a threat to America.

The U.S. recently announced a $5 million bounty on Mehsud's head. Asked about it, he told the AP he would be happy to "embrace martyrdom."

Mehsud has made voluminous threats against the West for years, as he rose to his current stature as the head of the Taliban in Pakistan, and he gave no apparent specifics in his threat on the U.S. capital on Tuesday, notes CBS News' Sami Yousafzai in Peshawar.

The attack on the police academy outside Lahore left at least seven police officers and two civilians dead on Monday.

Determining who actually carried out Monday's brazen assault on the police may prove difficult, if not impossible, in a country where numerous militant groups and tribes overlap and cooperate - both in acts of terror and claims of responsibility.

Conflicting Mehsud's claim, Pakistani intelligence officials based in Lahore told CBS News' Farhan Bokhari on Tuesday that Mehsud and the Taliban may not have been directly involved in the siege, based on ongoing interrogations of militants apprehended after the incident.

Security agents have not ruled out the possibility that militants from the banned group Lashkar-e-Taiba may have carried out the attack with some support from Mehsud, but the extent of any such link remains unclear.

A Taliban source told Yousafzai on Monday, meanwhile, that a group of militants called the Fedayeen al-Islam have been trying for some time to stage high-profile hostage takings to demand the release of Taliban and other militants held by the Pakistani government.

Last month's brutal attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore was part of that effort, the source claimed. The goal was allegedly to capture some of the famous cricketers riding in the team bus.

Refusing to be named, the Taliban source said Monday's attack might have been aimed at taking large numbers of police hostage - which they managed to do, but only until police snipers and commandos got the better of them.

The attack on Pakistan's police - who have become regular targets of the Taliban and other militant groups in recent months - came less than a month after the ambush on Sri Lanka's visiting cricketers and underscored the threat that militancy poses to the nuclear-armed country.

It prompted the country's top civilian security official to say that militant groups were "destabilizing the country."

Interior Ministry chief Rehman Malik, who visited the police academy after the siege, described it as an "attack on Pakistan."

"There are two choices: to either let the Taliban take over your country or to fight it out. At this time the nation must unite," he said.

The country's information minister Qamar Zaman Kaira congratulated Pakistan's forces who participated in the battle with the militants, saying "they conducted it very successfully."

Hey look the guy has died several times and has no conclusive leadership role... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baitullah_Mehsud

Death
CNN and various other media sources reported the death of Baithullah Mehsud on 30 September 2008. His "death", at the age of 34, was reportedly due to kidney failure preceded by a short sickness.[31] These rumors have been vehemently denied by many of his close associates, including his aide, his doctor and a Taliban spokesman.[32]

According to breaking news of ARY One World TV of Pakistan, Baitullah Mehsud died on 1 October 2008. He is estimated to have died at around midnight. The television says the reports of the death of Mr. Mehsud are yet to be confirmed. Mr. Mehsud has been in ill health for several months and has been suffering from high blood pressure and kidney disease. The Tehrik-e-Taliban has denied the death of Baitullah Mehsud.[33] According to a spokesman, Mehsud was "fit and well." Baitullah Mehsud was also reportedly sighted touring tribal areas in South Waziristan 2 days after his "reported death."[34] Mehsud's doctor also said he had spoken with him after the rumors of his death.[35]

However, it has been reported that local journalists believe that Mehsud did die and that the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan have not been willing to confirm his death until a successor has been named.[36]


Leadership dispute
On March 27, 2009, Pakistan's Daily Times reported that Baitullah Mehsud's group was engaged in a dispute with a group lead by Qari Zainuddin Mehsud for control of South Waziristan.[37] The Daily Times described Qari Zainuddin as the "self-appointed successor of Taliban commander Abdullah Mehsud". Both groups had distributed pamphlets leveling accusations against the other groups' leader. Qari Zainuddin was reported to have the support of a senior Taliban leader named "Maulvi Nazir" [sic] and to have allied with the Bhittani tribe -- a non-Pashtun tribe.

Is it any wonder that this story comes out on the day that the genocidal psycopath Hillary Clinton is speaking before 70 countries on how to attack Pakistan?

--------------------------------
Clinton urges Afghanistan unity
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/7973378.stm
3/31/2009


US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has urged all 70 nations attending a conference on Afghanistan's future to help the country succeed.

She told delegates at the one-day event in The Hague that the international effort there had been "undermanned and underfunded" over recent years.

Among the countries to offer help has been US foe Iran.

The conference comes after the US announced a major policy rethink on its approach towards Afghanistan.

The meeting, called by the UN, comes amid widespread concern that not enough progress has been made since the US-led invasion in 2001.

Support for Afghan reconstruction is being sought beyond the mainly-Western countries which have troops there.

'Reconciliation'

Mrs Clinton said that to succeed in the effort to pacify and rebuild Afghanistan, "we will need the help of all nations here".

She told delegates it was "in the interests of all of the people we represent".

And she linked progress in Afghanistan to progress fighting extremism in Pakistan, echoing the new unified approach to the region recently announced by US President Barack Obama.

"In Afghanistan and Pakistan we face a common threat, common enemy and common task," she said - but she also pledged to offer a "an honourable form of reconciliation" to members of al-Qaeda and the Taleban who abandoned violence.

Opening the conference, Afghan President Hamid Karzai welcomed regional interest in his country's development.

Relations between Mr Karzai and his US backers have seen some friction of late, after some US officials questioned the effectiveness and honesty of his government.

Mr Karzai hailed the "recognition that without the true co-operation of Afghanistan's neighbours, the victory over terrorism cannot be assured".

He highlighted in particular "the close partnership we have developed [with] the democratically-elected government of Pakistan", saying it had become "a valuable asset to the regional approach to fighting terrorism".

Awkward alliance

The presence of Iran's deputy foreign minister, Mohammad Mehdi Akhoondzadeh, has been applauded by the US.
 
The US is reinforcing its troop numbers in Afghanistan


"Iran is fully prepared to participate in the projects aimed at combating drug trafficking and the plans in line with developing and reconstructing Afghanistan," he said, according to AFP news agency.

But earlier, he said Afghans held the key to the future of their nation, not the international troops fighting the Taleban.

"The presence of foreign troops can't bring the peace, security and stability to the country," he told Iranian state media.

However, the BBC's international development correspondent, David Loyn, says that behind Iran's routine criticism lays a far more nuanced approach.

Mr Akhoondzadeh said Iran had increased the capacity of the docks at Chabahar - its nearest port to Afghanistan - to allow non-military supplies to travel into Afghanistan via Iranian territory.

Our correspondent says the cautious overture by Iran comes in response to the new mood set by the Obama White House.

Obama shift

The US says it will contribute $40m (£28m) toward holding the Afghan elections this summer.

Last week, Mr Obama announced a fundamental rethink of US strategy in Afghanistan and Pakistan to combat an "increasingly perilous" situation.

He said growing radical forces in the area posed the greatest threat to the American people and the world.

Promising an extra 4,000 US personnel to train and bolster the Afghan army and police, he also vowed support for civilian development.

Special US envoy Richard Holbrooke, also attending the conference, earlier predicted it would be "the launch point for the international recommitment to the effort in Afghanistan and western Pakistan".

Tuesday's conference is officially billed as a "Comprehensive Strategy in a Regional Context".

Of 73 countries invited, only one, Uzbekistan, declined to attend.

Oh Jeez......     ::)      I remember the news talking about this guy.

This is the only alleged photos of him. Notice that he's always covering his face or the media decides to obscure his face.
















This is his brother.



Abdullah Mehsud, a former Guantanamo Bay prisoner talks to reporters near Chagmalai on Thursday, Oct. 14, 2004 in South Waziristan along Afghanistan border. Pakistan's government asserted Friday Dec. 28, 2007 that al-Qaida was behind the assassination of Benazir Bhutto, and offered the transcript of a conversation as proof. "We strongly deny it. Baitullah Mehsud is not involved in the killing of Benazir Bhutto," the spokesman, Maulana Mohammed Umer, told The Associated Press by phone. (AP Photo/M. Sajjad.

And Gitmo again proves itself as an awesome "terrorist training camp" to create CIA controlled propoganda.

"reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated"

This is just more BS fear mongering to keep the sheep scared and to promote the Pakistan agenda.

I just reread this statement:

"One year ago, CBS News security correspondent Bob Orr reported that U.S. intelligence officials were increasingly concerned that Mehsud could eclipse even Osama bin Laden as a threat to America."

I am increasingly concerned about the sanity of Sumner, Viacom, Bob Orr, and these anonymous US intelligence officials.

These NWO puppets are totally freaking the f out.  They are pulling a Rockefeller.
