You gotta love this one. While coalition forces in Afghanistan gear up for a major assault against Taliban insurgents and al Qaeda holdouts, there was one small victory that took the edge off the seriousness of the impending Operation Achilles (which, by the way, is a much better name for such an operation, dont you think? A lot better than Together Forward or something foofy like that).
NATO reports that key Taliban commander and suicide bomb-maker Mullah Mahmood was captured in southeast Kandahar province by vigilant Afghan National Army troops. But heres the best part. Mahmood was dressed in drag.
NATO reports that the insurgent leader was trying to slip through a checkpoint wearing a burka when ANA soldiers noticed something wasnt quite right about the ruse.
Maybe that traditional Muslim dress reveals a lot more than one might think?
