The peoples of Afghanistan, Pakistan, America, and other coalition nations have been played for suckers by their corrupt political, military, and media elites.
An excerpt from, "Afghan War’s Convenient Myth: A Living Mullah Omar" by Joseph Goldstein, The New York Times, August 7, 2015:
Diplomats made talking about Mullah Omar a kind of parlor game, compulsively discussing the latest official statements.“If you had never gotten confirmation that Mullah Omar had died, this would have gone on until he was 110,” said the European Union’s representative to Afghanistan, Franz-Michael Mellbin. “When they would say ‘Mullah Omar issued this statement,’ I would say, ‘No, he didn’t; he’s not around.’ That’s been my line.”
Some Afghans wondered why the Taliban’s enemies seemed willing to keep breathing life into Mullah Omar.An excerpt from, "Taliban leader Mullah Omar didn't die in Pakistan: Minister" India Times, August 7, 2015:
ISLAMABAD: Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Omar did not die in Pakistan nor was he buried in this country, Defence Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif said on Friday.
Addressing the National Assembly, the minister also said that the Taliban leader was never in Quetta or Karachi and was not treated at any Karachi hospital.
The News quoted Asif as saying that statements made by Mullah Omar's family proved that he died in Afghanistan and was also buried there.
Last month, Afghanistan announced that Mullah Omar, the reclusive leader of the Taliban movement, died more than two years ago in the Pakistani port city Karachi.
"The government ... based on credible information confirms that Mullah Mohammad Omar, leader of the Taliban, died in April 2013 in Pakistan," the Afghan presidential palace had said.
