Imperial Good News: Mullah Omar is Dead! (Bumped-Updated)

******Bumped because it's hilarious!-scroll down for newer posts******[SH]

Or maybe not.

I received this email from the official Taliban spokesman this AM.

Statement of the Leadership Council of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan Regarding the Martyrdom of the Most Excellent Amir ul Momineen

Among the believers, there are men who have been true to their covenant with Allah. Some fulfilled their vow by death and some are still awaiting and they have not changed in the least. (S:33-V:23)

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficial, the Most Merciful

To all the inhabitants of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and respected Muslims it is with great shock and sorrow that the news is given that the Amir of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and the Leader of the Taliban the Esteemed Amir ul Momineen Mullah Mohammad Omar Mujahid on the 15th day of July in the current year 2011, passed away after an illness of the heart. To Allah (SwT) we belong and to Him is our return.

Personally I thought they just sent it to me to rub it in that they have recovered their website.

But Michelle Malkin is reporting that the Taliban later denied their own press release, claiming phone hacking by US intelligence.

KABUL: Two Taliban spokesmen said their mobile phones had been hacked and false text messages sent out on Wednesday reporting the death of the movement’s supreme leader Mullah Omar, who is still alive.

“This is the work of American intelligence, and we will take revenge on the telephone network providers,” said spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, when contacted by Reuters to confirm the veracity of one text message.

The messages came from phone numbers used in the past by both Mujahid and a second spokesman Mohammad Qari Yousuf and said “spiritual Leader Mullah Mohammad Omar Mujahid has died” and “May Allah bless his soul”.

Well then intelligence has hacked more than just their phones. Because I received my Mullah Omar death announcement via Qari Yousef Muhammad's Gmail.

Really I fail to see a down side in this, either Mullah Omar is dead or...... the Taliban are so effing owned on the internet its not even funny.

What am I saying? Yes it is funny.


In fact I can't stop laughing..... really.

Update: It appears the Taliban have totally lost control of their website. The "fake Mullah Omar" announcement still appears on their English version of the new website which is hosted in the Netherlands.

Darn you'd have thought they'd have been safe there.

Nope. LOL.

UPDATE by SH: Taliban has a new Facebook page. Don't know if it is fake too!!:

See my screenshot below fold:

Updated again: It now appears the Taliban's website is totally dead. The last active URL is throwing DB errors.
