Taliban’s Top Military Commander finally Captured

Posted on: February 17, 2010

Taliban forces assembled in Afghanistan.

The United States military scored an immense victory recently as they succeeded in capturing Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, who is the Taliban’s Top Military Commander and second in command behind Mullah Mohammad Omar who was the founder of the Taliban. This critical move made by the United States is a vital turning point in the current war on terror. He was arrested and apprehended in a Pakistani-CIA co-operation that made a big move into the midst of Southern Afghanistan in the port city of Karachi. Since the September 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center, Baradar is the highest ranking Taliban leader to have been arrested by the United States. Karachi is the biggest city in Pakistan and there had been many rumors circulating that various high ranking officers in the Taliban resided there. However, the Taliban has repetitively denied all claims saying that Baradar was still with them, but would not present any evidence to prove their case. They stated that it was all propaganda against them.
