Taliban kicks out prominent commander (Mansoor Dadullah, disobeyed militant group's rules)
AP on Yahoo ^ | 12/29/07 | AP

Posted on 12/29/2007 6:16:21 PM PST by NormsRevenge

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan - A key Taliban commander in southern Afghanistan has been dismissed for disobeying the militant group's rules, a Taliban spokesman said Saturday.

Mansoor Dadullah was "disobeying orders" and conducting activities "against the Taliban's rules and regulations," said Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid. He did not provide any details.

"For this reason Mullah Mansoor Dadullah is no longer in the Taliban and no longer a Taliban commander," Mujahid said in a statement he attributed to Taliban leader Mullah Omar.

Dadullah rose in the militia's ranks as a key commander in southern Afghanistan after his brother, Mullah Dadullah, was killed during a military operation last May in Helmand province. Mullah Dadullah was the highest-ranking Taliban commander killed since the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan in 2001.

Mansoor Dadullah could not be reached for comment.

Mujahid said Taliban sympathizers who had been providing help to Mansoor Dadullah should stop.

Likely translation: he was caught with a young boy in a way that couldn't be denied to the rank and file.

Or, something like that.

There once was a man named Dadullah
Who the Taliban said was a fool-ah
They stripped him of his rank
His hopes of glory they sank
If he takes a dirt nap, that would so cool-ah.

That was Chuck Conners, in "Branded".

Branded! Cursed with a coward's shame.
What do you do when your branded, and you fight for your name?
Branded! Scorned as the one who ran.
What do you do when you're branded, and you know you're a man?
Whereever you go for the rest of your life,
you must prove...you're a man!

Funny, the useless stuff you remember.

Disgusting Rules....would bet that every one is broken too.

The 3 pictures at the end is horrible...imagine an 11 year old ‘wife’ ?

I remember a movie with Lee Marvin- “The Big Red One” in which the women of the Italian village take their scythes and sickles to their ruthless German tormentors..Waiting for the day when the Arab women rise up and say enough and do the same thing to the Taliban and Al-Q dogs..

Then dismissed takes on a whole new meaning, something along the lines of beheaded or Mansoor gets a new nostril between his eyes.

I don't believe it. Most of the really effective Taliban commanders have been moved to Pakistan. That's likely where he is and this is a cover story.

What would an ex Taliban commander do? Think about it, they have many fighters personally loyal to them that would mutiny and destroy the cohesiveness of the entire command. The Taliban could not trust that he wouldn't roll over to Karzai and rat out the whole operation.

No, the only way to leave the Taliban is feet first. This story is nonsense.
