Pakistan Taliban chief reported killed in US drone strike

Mullah Fazlullah Khorasani, Pakistan’s most wanted Taliban leader, with a US $5m bounty on his head, was reported killed in a US drone strike on the Kunar border. The announcement came from the Afghan defense ministry on Friday. Earlier, US forces spokesman in Afghanistan, Lt. Col. Marin O’Donnell, confirmed the air strike in Kunar as “targeting a senior leader of a designated terrorist organization.” Pakistani Taliban members said they had been unable to contact their leader and feared four other top commanders may also have been killed. Khorasani was sought for major terrorist atrocities, including the 2014 school massacre that killed 132 children and the 2012 shooting of schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai who survived and was awarded the Noble Peace Prize.

    BTW, it is the Nobel Peace Prize, not the Noble Piece Prise which is something entirely different…

    Excellent! Who’s a bad boy and harms a lot, harm comes back upon him does not matter how long it takes, does not matter how far he hides.

    Somehow, . . . I really enjoy it when Karma sneaks up on the bad boys, . . . kicks their backsides.

    If you get vaporized in this life, . . . do you still qualify for 72 virgins?
