    The NY Times is reporting in a breaking news release that somewhere in Karachi the Taliban's top guy has been captured (possibly a day or three ago).

    The "top Taliban military commander," Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar is in our hands!

    Bravo to our forces and kudos to President Obama!

    the report I am reading said both usa and pakistan intel officers have been investigating him since captured which was either the 11th or before, but the NYT was asked to wait to release the story a couple days.
