THEY HAVE TO GET LUCKY EVERY DAY...:

Taleban 'admit commander's death' (BBC, 12/27/06)

The Taleban are reported to have confirmed the death of a senior commander who the Americans said they had killed in Afghanistan last week.

Initially, the Taleban denied that Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Osmani had died in an air strike in Helmand province. [...]

"He has died. We got this information on the day of the strike but our leadership ordered us not to disclose it," Reuters reports the commander as telling one of its journalists by phone.

"He was not only an experienced military commander but also good in making financial transactions for us... his death will have some bad impact on our movement for some time."
