I So Hate to Be Wrong: Qari Hussain Mehsud Not Dead

To be fair Bill Roggio has always been skeptical of the reports of Mehsud's death.

Long War Journal

A top Taliban commander who trains children to become suicide bombers has disproved reports that he was killed during a US Predator airstrike in mid-January.

Qari Hussain Mehsud, a senior lieutenant to Movement of the Taliban in Pakistan leader Hakeemullah Mehsud, spoke to a Pakistani news service on Feb. 14 to take credit for last week's deadly suicide attacks in Bannu. The dual suicide blasts targeted police in the district and killed 16 people, including Bannu's police chief and 12 other officers.


Hat Tip: That Google Buzz thingy, which I now hate even more...... I'm still in denial, how do we know this isn't Zombie Qari Hussain Mehsud?
