Taliban leader 'flees Pakistan'
That means he has lost the battle and see's no real hope if troop numbers esculate in Afghanistan. Propaganda can show the truth. Of course this juicy tit bit could be used as a ploy to make it seem very necessary for more troops to be sent to the battle front in Afghanistan. "Hey we got them on the run lets now finnish it off" propaganda cant wait for Obama next speach on this issue.
One of the most wanted Taliban leaders in Pakistan has escaped to Afghanistan and is planning new attacks on Pakistani forces, he has told the BBC.
Maulana Fazlullah founded the Swat Taliban to enforce a hardline version of Islamic law.
The government at first accepted his demands, but later accused the militants of reneging on a peace deal and sent troops into the valley.
Maulana Fazlullah was said by officials to have been wounded or killed in July.
"I have reached Afghanistan safely," Maulana Fazlullah told BBC Urdu.
"We are soon going to launch full-fledged punitive raids against the army in Swat."
