Baitullah Mehsud: Eliminated

Dan Qayyum | PakistanKaKhudaHafiz.com


Pakistani Terrorist chief Baitullah Mehsud, who led a violent campaign of suicide attacks and assassinations against the Pakistani government, has been killed in a US missile strike, a TTP commander and aide to Mehsud said Friday.

‘I confirm that Baitullah Mehsud and his wife died in the American missile attack in South Waziristan,’ Kafayatullah told The Associated Press by telephone. He would not give any further details. [Source]

In February this year, PKKH had reported on how Baitullah Mehsud had outlived his shelf-life, and was of no further use to his American masters. With the TTP defeated in Malakand, he had been cornered in his hometown in South Waziristan and it would only have been a matter of days before he was captured.

This is what we reported earlier this year:

It now increasingly looks like Baitullah Mehsud is living on borrowed time. It would be interesting to see who gets to him first, the Pakistanis or the Americans. Pakistan Army would be well advised to attempt to capture him alive, something that the Americans and Indians would try and ensure does not happen.

It is important to note that the (Afghan) Taleban’s Supreme Commander Mullah Mohammad Omar issued a statement nearly two years ago distancing himself and the Afghan Taleban from the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and its chief Baitullah Mehsud. He also condemned Baitullah Mehsud in strong words for fighting against the Pakistan Army instead of against the US the NATO forces in Afghanistan.

Baitullah Mehsud had also gone as far as threatening Kashmiri Mujahideen groups earlier this year, accusing them of ‘only fighting external enemies such as the US and India’. The TTP justified attacking members of these Jihadi outfits by pointing out that these outfits ‘do not fight the Pakistan Army’ and commit mass murder of innocent Pakistani citizens like the TTP has been doing.

The leaders of Harkatul Mujahideen, Hizbul Mujahideen, Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jama’at-ud-Dawa had strongly opposed and rejected TTP’s version of ‘Jihad’ inside Pakistan in which it has been murdering Pakistani citizens indiscriminately.

Armed with US and Indian supplied weapons, Mehsud had been fighting a bloody war against the Pakistan Army and Government, and had claimed responsibility for a number of suicide attacks and assasinations all over the country.

Close aids of Mehsud who had denounced TTP further revealed the extent of support Baitullah Mehsud had from US, Indian and Israeli intelligence agencies using Afghanistan as their base.

According to a report published earlier this year, senior military and national security officials had submitted to the Pakistani government “irrefutable evidence” of the involvement of Indian and Israeli secret agencies in Baluchistan and the tribal region of Waziristan and Malakand. The report added that there is irrefutable evidence that Indian and Israeli agencies are providing financial aid and modern weapons to the militants in the tribal region.

According to Roznama Jang, the military leadership had urged the civilian government to take up the issue at diplomatic levels with the nations whose secret agencies are supporting Taliban commanders Baitullah Mehsud and Maulana Fazlullah.

In another exclusive report published on June 2nd this year, PKKH revealed the US plans to either dispatch a JSOC rescue mission for Baitullah Mehsud by infiltrating Pakistani territory from the Afghan side of the border, or to eliminate him before the Pakistan Army got to him.

This is what we reported on June 2nd:

The Americans do not want Pakistanis to capture Baitullah Mehsud alive, and attempting to eliminate him using air-strikes will not be easy since Pakistan Army is advancing towards him already. They will either take him out before he is captured, or he will mysteriously disappear only to re-emerge later at a different location.

The Pakistan Army must capture Baitullah Mehsud alive. But before that, they have to ensure they block Baitullah Mehsud’s supply lines from Afghanistan – with aggression if necessary – and ensure he does not disappear towards the Afghan border where there is a getaway crew waiting for him.

It seems that with Baitullah’s capture imminent, the Americans chose to finally pull the trigger.
