For some reason that's a story that's getting lots of ink.
In spite of the fact that it's complete bullshit. How many times before has the US eliminated top Taliban leaders? Seems the US forces of righteousness have been rubbing out those Taliban leaders for what, ten or fifteen years by now?
But, just like the Energizer Bunny, those Taliban leaders keep on coming. Knock out one with a drone strike, and there's two more right there to take his place.
Far be it from me to suggest the US strategy is not working, but who can ignore the fact that the US strategy is not working?
Apparently the US high command has no problem whatsoever ignoring the fact that their strategy is not working. They just keep doing the same and doing the same and then doing the same again, and then feigning complete surprise when their strategy is not working!
Hey fellas!... it's not working and it's never worked! The towellers are just sick of having you in their countries!
Go home already!
Let them figure out their own shit!
