On December 28, I linked to an article from the CS Monitor that quoted Qari Ahmadullah, the Taliban’s chief of intelligence, as saying that Osama bin Laden is still in Afghanistan. Now he’s dead. He was killed by US bombing in the village of Naka on December 27. It’s quite likely that the article in the CSM was his final interview. (A former Taliban commander called Rocketi is also presumed to have been killed in the attack on Naka, the CSM has an interview with him here.)
