"Martyred" Taliban Commander Was Retarded

An image of Abdullah Mehsud in an interview with reporters in 2004. A former Guantanamo Bay prisoner released after he was found not to be a threat, and who later returned to Pakistan to become an important Taliban leader involved in multiple attacks against US and Afghani forces, died today after blowing himself and several companions up when they were surrounded by Pakistani forces.

Oh, and it appears he was also retarded. Is it just me, or is the Taliban gunman standing next to Mehsud staring at his one slipper and one shoe thinking, "I can't believe they put him in charge."

UPDATE: This really calls for a caption contest. So, caption it!
