Is this the list to be on or what?
(CNN)—The new Afghan Taliban leader has told commanders and the group’s supreme leadership council that there will be no peace talks with the Afghan government, a source in the group reached through an intermediary said Wednesday.The source said that Mawlawi Haibatullah Akhundzada, newly appointed to lead the terror group after a U.S. drone strike killed Mullah Akhtar Mohammed Mansour, will follow the militant policies espoused by founder Mullah Omar, who was killed in Pakistan in 2013.The source said that the appointment of Akhundzada “will bring back the era of Mullah Mohammad Omar,” referring to the one-eyed mujahedeen commander who led the group from its inception in 1994, with “a simple life, loyalty, and terror on enemies.”
The report from CNN also points out that Taliban forces have recently made inroads against the United States-supported Afghanistan government, including driving Afghan forces and inflicting bombing attacks in Kabul.
The Taliban claim Mr. Akhundzada is 47 years old, although official sources put his age closer to 60. He is said to be a uniter and a strong leader. Beyond that not much else is known about him, including his cell phone number, his ZIP code, and his plans for next weekend.
