Brian Ross at ABC reports on the video Mullah Dadullah made just 36 hours before his death regarding the training of terrorist cells in both the US and Britain. More at ABC News The Blotter:
Thirty-six hours before he was killed by U.S. forces, Taliban Commander Mullah Dadullah said he was training American and British citizens to carry out suicide missions in their home countries, according to a videotape interview to be broadcast on ABC News’ “World News” Monday.
“We will be executing attacks in Britain and the U.S. to demonstrate our sincerity,” he told an Afghan interviewer, “to destroy their cities as they have destroyed our cities.”
A senior U.S. official told the Blotter on ABCNews.com that recent intelligence reports confirmed Dadullah’s claim that U.S. citizens were being trained in Taliban and al Qaeda camps.
Mullah Dadullah is known for making extreme threats, most of them have a grain of truth but are usually exagerated. I would wager that trained cells do exist both UK and US, but they are probably few.
In a video broadcast on Al Arabiya television Hekmatyar, the butcher of Kabul, (responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of muslims from rockets during the attack on Rabbani’s government in Kabul) states that Osama Bin Laden still lives, he’s just keeping a low-profile.
The violence in Pakistan grows, and the opposition parties have now named the MQMÂ shootings in the Karachi demonstrations “The May Massacre”. This, along withÂ Musharaaf’s suspension of the chief justice, and his handling of the Jamia Hafsa affair is usurping the moderates from support of Musharaaf’s party. More demonstrations and “wheel jams” are happening across the country. ( In a wheel jam demonstrators will block an important road, crossroads or intersection for a day or more.)
