Dadullah and Brader — no Omar (yet). From UPI, :
U.S. and Afghan forces have surrounded at least two senior Taliban commanders after three days of intense fighting in southern Afghanistan.
More than 100 Taliban fighters have been killed in one of the biggest offensives in two years, the BBC reported Thursday.
Those surrounded are believed to include Mullah Dadullah and Mullah Brader — both of whom are said to be close to Taliban leader Mullah Omar.
Hundreds of Afghan troops backed by U.S.-led coalition forces took part in the clashes in Zabul province that began Tuesday when rebels opened fire with small arms and rocket-propelled grenades….
A Taliban spokesman denied that any of their men had been killed.
Yes, and the American troops are nowhere near Baghdad!
