Meanwhile In Afghanistan

Spring is the traditional fighting season in Afghanistan, and successful attacks have been launched against remnants of the Taliban. A number of formerly important Taliban officials have been captured in recent days, according to this Reuters report:
“Afghan officials said on Saturday they had killed more than 50 Taliban rebels in fighting in the northwest of the country, and captured a former provincial governor under the ousted fundamentalist regime.”
“Several leading Taliban officials have been captured in the last two weeks in separate operations in the eastern province of Ghazni and in southern Kandahar province. They include Mullah Abdul Razaaq, a former Taliban commerce minister, Mawlavi Shahid Khel, deputy education minister and Sattar Sadozai, a key intelligence official during Taliban rule.” It would be nice to finally get our hands on Mullah Omar.
