From the Long War Journal:
Pakistan frees Mullah Obaidullah, other senior Taliban leaders
President Pervez Musharraf's promise to hunt the Taliban as part of its suspension of the constitution and a virtual state of emergency rings hollow as the Taliban's grip on the northwest Frontier Province tightens. Newsweek reported the Pakistani government has released several senior Taliban commanders captured inside Pakistani territory over the past year. The leaders were among 25 Taliban exchanged for over 200 Pakistani soldiers captured by South Waziristan commander Baitullah Mehsud in late August.

Among those freed from Pakistani jails are Mullah Obaidullah Akhund, Amir Khan Haqqani, two brothers of slain Taliban commander Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Usmani, and Baitullah Mehsud's cousin.

Mullah Obaidullah was the Taliban Defense Minister under during the reign of the Taliban from 1996 until the US toppled the government in the fall of 2001. He was the most senior Taliban figure captured to date and "is considered by American intelligence officials to have been one of the Taliban leaders closest to Osama bin Laden," as well as part of the "inner core of the Taliban leadership around the Mullah Muhammad Omar who are believed to operate from the relative safety of Quetta." Obaidullah was a member of the Taliban's Shura Majlis, or executive council, and was thought to be third in command.
And Musharraf probably thinks that they will leave Pakistan alone if he gives in to their demands... Here are just a few of the wonders of Islam as taken from The Religion of Peace website:
11/9/2007 Pakistan Peshawar -- Four people are killed when a suicide bomber on foot darts into their home. Three are injured.

11/8/2007 Pakistan Tank -- A Shiite cleric is gunned down by Sunni radicals.

11/8/2007 Pakistan Bannu -- The Mujahideen shoot a man to death inside his home.

11/7/2007 Pakistan Razmak -- Three local soldiers are abducted and killed for 'resisting Islam.' One is injured.

11/5/2007 Pakistan Kharqamar -- A local soldier is killed in a roadside bombing attack by Taliban militants. One is injured.
And the list just goes on and on and on. Religion of Peace my ass...
