Huh? Not dead?

Jihad leader Mehsud ain’t dead, he’s just hiding, says Taliban

Jihadists never die, they just smell funny…

And he may be, too. After all, the most famous Undead Jihadist, Osama bin Laden, was widely rumored in 2003 and 2004 to be enjoying his virgins, only to turn up again just before the election to cast his vote for John Kerry. Only time will tell.

An update on this story. “Baitullah Mehsud alive, in hiding: Pakistan Taliban,” from the Economic Times, August 8


Top’s not off either…

Tim Blair – Sunday, August 09,

Earlier reports of terrorist Noordin Mohammed Top’s eradication may be wrong, although some remain convinced:

“The man shot dead in ?Temanggung is Noordin,” a senior anti-terror officer involved in the operations told the New Sunday Times.

“We are now waiting for DNA tests, expected within a week, for a?100 per cent positive confirmation of Noordin’s identity.”


Another top anti-terror officer said the dead person is not Noordin but Boim Ibrahim, a suspect in the July 17 twin bombings of the JW Marriott and Ritz- Carlton Hotel.

Doubts over the identity of the dead idiot now awaiting an autopsy in Jakarta arose following publication of post-shootout photographs:

Pictures that began circulating several hours after the raids suggested the corpse flown to the national police hospital in Jakarta yesterday afternoon did not resemble police photographs previously published of Top.

Comparisons are rendered slightly difficult by the fact that Top (or Boim, the non-Top) is currently missing the top of his head. He’s topless. Terrorism analyst Sidney Jones:

“Apparently, he’s not dead,” said Ms Jones. “The legend continues.”

One thought on “Huh? Not dead?”

  1. The BBC report that he is very ill. I suppose that rigamortis could be described as some sort of disease.
