Dead Taliban Leader, Killed in Drone Strike, Insists He is Alive

OK, he is really dead....sorry

In this photograph taken on November 3, 2015, Mullah Mohammad Rasool Akhund, the newly appointed leader of a breakaway faction of the Taliban, addresses a gathering of supporters at Bakwah in the western province of Farah. A breakaway faction of the Taliban has appointed its own leader in the first formal split in the Afghan militant movement under new head Mullah Mansour, posing a fresh hurdle to potential peace talks. Mullah Rasool was named the leader of the faction in a mass gathering of dissident fighters this week in the remote southwestern province of Farah, according to an AFP reporter who attended the meeting.

The recent report that Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Mansoor, leader of the Afghan Freedom Fighters Taliban, was killed in a U.S. drone strike, is not true. Although the U.S. government and the U.S. installed Afghan administration have reported that he has been killed, reliable sources inside Afghanistan have stated that it was an innocent Balochi villager, named Wali Mohammad, who was killed by the drone strike and not the Afghan Freedom Fighters leader. This innocent villager had the misfortune of looking like the Taliban leader and being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Afghans, who are spies and interpreters for the United States, once again misinformed the United States government. These drone killings of civilians based on misinformation has happened everyday these past 15 years. Enough is enough.

It is not good for the United States to make such false statements in the media regarding the drone killing. Six months ago the U.S. government reported that it had killed the Taliban leader. Now again the same propaganda. It is embarrassing and not good for the United States’ reputation. Once again innocent civilians are being killed by these U.S. drone strikes, which are unlawful and violate international law. The war in Afghanistan needs to stop. The U.S. must stop its unlawful drone strikes. The killing of innocent people needs to stop. Perpetrators of these war crimes must be prosecuted in lawful tribunals. Enough lies.

    Unfortunately, to many if not most Americans, all “Mohammads” look alike…

    If the Bush/Rotten-Child Cabal had not faked 9/11 and blamed Muslims, virtually no Americans would be in Afghanistan; and Americans would be killing NO “Mohammads” — in Afghanistan or elsewhere.

    The 9/11 ‘false flag’ was a set-up to ‘do’ Muslims, then Russia, China & BRICS — because BRICS-aligned nations ‘are eating our lunch’ (or what we think is or should be ‘our’ lunch, or the lunch of the 1% of 1%).
