Hakimullah Mehsud Alive?

I hope the hell not. Its not like we have hellfire missiles to just waste on these Jihadis. Oh, we do? In that case, put the target back up.

Pakistani Taliban chief Hakimullah Mehsud is now believed to have survived a U.S. missile strike earlier this year, but has lost clout within the militant network, a senior intelligence official said Thursday.

The revelation contradicts initial confidence among U.S. and Pakistani intelligence officials that the brash militant leader had been killed in a mid-January missile attack in the Waziristan stretch of the northwest tribal belt bordering Afghanistan.

The Taliban consistently denied Mehsud was killed, but declined to offer evidence he was alive, saying it would compromise his safety.

But Mehsud's power has lessened, and other Taliban commanders, such as Waliur Rehman, are now overshadowing him, the official said.

Also, it is claimed that he was the only person to survive the attack. Ansar al-Mujihadeen was quick to point out that it was a miracle and, I'm sure its coming if I know my akhi, Allah's divine will. I just threw up a little.
