Video of Taliban commander leaves fate unclear(Hakimullah Mehsud)

AP

Who is kidding who....they release another tape from Hakimullah Mehsud WITHOUT a date as to when it was taped or any proof of life(Hint to Taliban:Get him to hold a newspaper with that days date on it...)

DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan The Pakistani Taliban released a video of their militant chief, Hakimullah Mehsud, but his taped comments fail to prove he survived a U.S. missile strike earlier this year.

U.S. and Pakistani officials have become increasingly confident that the brash militant commander died of wounds from a drone-fired missile in mid-January, but the Pakistani Taliban have denied he was killed.

At the same time, the militants have said they felt no responsibility to definitively prove he's alive.

We're still calling BS.
