Taleban's ex-spokesman shot dead
bbc ^ | 28 November 2008

A former high-profile spokesman for the Taleban has been shot dead in eastern Afghanistan.

Mohammad Hanif was killed at his home in the province of Nangarhar along with three other people who were believed to be his relatives.

Another official said the others killed were Dr Hanif's cousin, brother-in-law and nephew and that the attack may have been linked to a family feud.

Dr Hanif began speaking for Afghanistan's former rulers in October 2005.

He was held in January 2007 in the border town of Towr Kham in Nangarhar soon after entering from Pakistan.

Afghanistan's intelligence agents released a video in which Dr Hanif alleged Taleban leader Mullah Omar was living inside Pakistan

Speaking of Taliban spokesmen, what ever happened to Sayed Rahmatullah Hashemi, that jerk who was taking classes at Yale?

It'd be nice to see him addressing the graduating classes, just in case there's any doubt in anyone's mind as to what side Yale is on in the war for civilization.

“Dr Hanif alleged Taleban leader Mullah Omar was living inside Pakistan - a claim denied by Islamabad.”

There once was a man named Hanif
for the taleban would lie through his teeth
till one day at his pad
he pissed off his dad
and wound up wrapped in a sheet.

Was he an “ex” before being an “ex”? I didn't know the Taliban had such a lucrative retirement program.
