Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. BBC news story

    A top Taleban leader, Mullah Dadullah, has been captured in Afghanistan, Afghan officials have told the BBC.

    The senior military commander was said to have been detained by international troops in southern Kandahar province.

    Mullah Dadullah was a member of the Taleban's 10-man leadership council before the US-led invasion in 2001.

    Kandahar's governor said three members of the council had been arrested but did not give names. The Taleban deny Mullah Dadullah has been captured.

    There has been no official confirmation of the arrest from the Afghan government or US military.
     
  2. Actually he was wounded in the heavy fighting and was unconscious in a military hospital.
     
  3. Is this the guy who the Packistani Air Force flew out of Ganistan to prevent his capture by the US forces in 92 ?

  4. Did they still read him his rights while unconscious?
     
  5. That would be the same bird Jon.

    I really do wonder sometimes, just how involved Pakistan still is with the Taliban.
     
  6. Doubts over Taleban chief seizure
    Fresh doubts have been raised over claims by Afghan officials that they have captured one of the Taleban's top commanders, Mullah Dadullah.

  7. The Afghan puppet state have claimed Mullah Dadullah capture or killing on at least 2 occasions previously. And, guess what? It was nonsense.

    But this time it must be true - as T6 apparantly has inside information... :roll:
     
  8. IF G-Bay is anything to go by, he doesn't have any rights to have read to him!! :wink:
     
  9. Bring him over here then we can give him a house , a car, compensation for being wounded and free reign to do what the hell he wants. Why didn't we just say oops never saw a thing and have him removed from the big picture.
