Mullah Omar - Oh Where Could He Be & Does The President Even Care?

Reported by Donna - May 4, 2006

On Fox News Live today and most days, (12 - 1 p.m.) Bill Hemmer has a segment called BYA. Which stands for Because You Asked. Apparently people were trying to find out where Mullah Omar, the head of the Taliban was, so they brought on one of the only people to have ever met him, Arnaud De Borchgrave, Editor-In-Large, for UPI.

Apparently Mullah Omar is roaming free in Afghanistan where Mr. De Borchgrave said he could be in any of '"thousands of places."

Apparently the Taliban are running all over several provinces of Afghanistan. Mr. De Borchgrave said that the Taliban was running around unaffected over six provinces in Afghanistan in groups of 10, 20, or even 50 Taliban men together at one time.

Mr. De Borchgrave also said he had been over to the Afghanistan/Pakistan border and had been told that many trainers had come in from Iraq to Afghanistan to train them on suicide bombings. He added that there was a resurgent movement going on in Afghanistan and the results were already coming in, 5 suicide bombings in the last 3 days.

Comments: In this war on terror isn't it reassuring to be told that the leader of the Taliban is running free (not to mention Osama Bin Laden) and that the Taliban roam freely over 6 provinces in Afghanistan? That there is a resurgent movement, trainers coming in from Iraq and now suicide bombings coming at the rate of 5 in the last 3 days? Add in the reported increase in heroin production, up 90% of what it was before we invaded Afghanistan and you have a boiling pot of money + terrorists = more deaths.

This was a small segment with not much fanfare but I hope people were paying attention, this is what we are doing/not doing in the war on terror.
