    • 4 Pages

    Al-Qaeda too has had a torrid time in 2016. Tribal fighters and forces loyal to Yemeni president Mansur Hadi backed by the Saudi coalition have retaken broad swaths of AQAP-held areas in Yemen’s Hadramout province, including the port of Al Mukalla. Moreover, faced with crushing pressure from US-armed secular forces in Syria, its Jabhat al-Nusra faction also filed for divorce this month, announcing henceforth the group would profess "no affiliation to any external entity." Though IS’s media wing al-Furqan has made public three audio recordings attributed to al-Baghdadi since May last year, they all sound like ex-Taliban chief Mullah Mohammad Omar speaking from beyond the grave. I reference, of course, last July when, amid landmark talks in Islamabad between the Taliban and Kabul, the Afghan spy agency NDS leaked news that Mullah Omar, despite his very recent pronouncements through the group’s media cell, had been dead for years. It turned out his (now deceased) deputy Mullah Akhtar Mansour was impersonating him to prevent the movement from splintering. Is al-Baghdadi also now a sock puppet for some new IS lynchpin? Since intelligence reports suggest he suffered serious, possibly life-threatening injuries in March. It bears noting that despite IS’s wanton brutality at the height of its territorial sway between 2014 and mid-2015 designed to dominate headlines worldwide, al-Baghdadi has always been a shadowy figure. Indeed, what little we know of him comes from IS…

Then a suicide-bomber murdered 28 police cadets, and eight Afghan contractors and an American died in an attack on an American military base.It looks as if the Taliban's leaders are trying to prove to…

    Near the end of the 20th century, Afghanistan did not have a stable ruler and continued to switch between the soviets and its independence. But it was soon taken over by the Taliban through multiple civil wars and its influence towards its people (The Taliban). There was one slight problem, its leader Mullah Omar.
