Mansoor Dadullah gets publicly pwned in Taliban family feud

Can I hear a bwa-ha-ha, people?

"Taliban in Turmoil after argument over sacking."

The Taliban leadership are struggling to contain the fallout from an embarrassing public argument after a senior commander was sacked for disobeying orders but then refused to stand down.

Taliban spokesmen traded accusations in phone calls to news organisations after Mullah Omar, the spiritual leader of the Islamist organisation, publicly sacked Mansoor Dadullah, the new overall ground commander fighting British forces in southern Afghanistan.

Zabiullah Mujahid, a spokesman, said Dadullah was sacked for disobeying orders and conducting activities against the Taliban's rules and regulations. He refused to elaborate on the exact nature of the charges.

Makes you to shudder to think, doesn't it? I mean, really. What in God's name would you have to do to get bounced from the freaking Taliban?

It looks like there's a history: Mansoor's brother, dead Taliban leader, Mullah Dadullah, got fired three times by Mullah Omar for "disobeying orders and conducting grotesquely excessive massacres of civilians and prisoners." There's your Muslim overlord for ya! Let's give that man access to some nukes!

For the record, Mansoor claims to be the victim of a conspiracy.
