    Default Jan., 2011 - Pakistani spy agency rushed Mullah Omar to hospital

    i hope this is not true!

    The report said Omar was “rushed” to the hospital on Jan. 7 by Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence agency

    By Jeff Stein

    Mullah Omar, the elusive, one-eyed leader of the Afghan Taliban, had a heart attack Jan. 7 and was treated for several days in a Karachi hospital with the help of Pakistan's spy agency, according to a private intelligence network run by former CIA, State Department and military officers.


    The intelligence network, operating under the auspices of a private company, “The Eclipse Group,” said its source was a physician in the Karachi hospital, which was not identified in the report, who said he saw Omar struggling to recover from an operation to put a stent in his heart.

    “While I was not personally in the operating theater,” the physician reported, “my evaluation based on what I have heard and seeing the patient in the hospital is that Mullah Omar had a cardiac catheter complication resulting in either bleeding or a small cerebral vascular incident, or both.”

    U.S. officials said they could not immediately verify the report.
    "No one on this end has heard this," said a U.S. official from Kabul. "It doesn't mean it's not true -- we just have no information to confirm or dispute these facts."
    A spokesman at the Pakistan Embassy in Washington did not respond to a request for comment.

    UPDATE: On Tuesday afternoon Pakistan's ambassador to the United States, Husain Haqqani, said the report "had no basis whatsoever."

    “Sometimes intelligence tips received by professionals turn out to be wrong. The story about Mullah Omar falls under that category. You might recall a similar story from 2001 about Osama bin Laden receiving dialysis treatment that turned out to be incorrect, and the fabrication of those who wanted to give Pakistan a bad name."

    Haqqani added, "Pakistani intelligence, military and law enforcement personnel continue to hunt down wanted Al-Qaeda and Taliban figures and will apprehend anyone if and when we have hard intelligence, which is very different from speculation circulated by contractors.”

    The report said Omar was “rushed” to the hospital on Jan. 7 by Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence agency.

    “The ISI rushed him to a hospital in Karachi, where he was given heparin [an anticoagulant] and operated on,” the Eclipse report said. “After 3-4 days of post-operative care in the hospital, he was released to the ISI and ordered to take absolute bed rest when at home for at least several days.”

    The physician who was the source for the report said that, “After the operation, there seemed to be some brain damage with Mullah Omar having slurred speech.”
    “His post hospital course is consistent with this type of outcome,” the physician added. “Three-four days in hospital is consistent with cardiac catheterization and or cardiac stent placement. Bed rest and aphasia [difficulty speaking] post-catheterization could be from a bleeding complication.”

    Citing a separate source in the Quetta shura, the Taliban governing council on Pakistan’s border with Afghanistan, the Eclipse report said “Mullah Omar is continuing to improve and his speech is clearing.”

    It also said the ISI was keeping the Quetta shura “informed” about Omar’s recovery at “an ISI ‘guest house’ in Karachi under ISI guard.”
    The Eclipse Group is run by Duane “Dewey” Clarridge, a former head of the CIA's Latin American operations who was the first chief of the CIA's counterterrorism center; Kim Stevens, a retired U.S. diplomat who served in Bolivia and Italy; and Brad A. Patty, a civilian advisor to the U.S. Army's 30th Heavy Brigade Combat Team in Iraq from 2007 to 2009.
    The Eclipse Group’s reports are available “by invitation only” on its Web site, Stevens said.

    By all appearances, the Eclipse network is the just the latest iteration of a shadowy, Pentagon-backed operation that began contracting with former CIA and military operatives to supply intelligence in Afghanistan and Pakistan in 2009. Amid adverse publicity last year, the Pentagon supposedly cut off its funding.

    Stevens declined to discuss The Eclipse Group’s financing, except to say it has “no DoD clients …”
    “Our customer list is proprietary information, but it is more than 20 and less than 50, including several European intelligence services,” he added.

    Note: Based on information from The Eclipse Group, Brad A. Patty was incorrectly described at first as a U.S. Army Special Forces veteran. He says he has never served in the armed forces.

    THE DAILY TELEGRAPH report by Ben Farmer:
    Kabul, Jan. 19: The Taliban have denied a report that their fugitive leader, Mullah Mohammad Omar, has had a heart attack and is convalescing with the help of Pakistan’s military spy agency.
    A spokesman for the insurgents dismissed the report as American propaganda, saying Omar was fit and well.
    Pakistan, which is accused of harbouring the insurgents’ leadership, also rejected the report from a private intelligence network and published by a US newspaper.
    Omar was rushed to a Karachi hospital on January 7 it said, quoting an unnamed doctor who had seen him struggling to recover from surgery to fit a tube in his heart. The one-eyed Taliban leader was slurring his words and seemed to have some brain damage.
    Three or four days after the operation, Omar was released to the ISI and ordered to take absolute bed rest.
    A Taliban spokesman, who gave his name as Zabiullah Mujahid, told the Daily Telegraph by telephone: “This report is not true, it is American propaganda.
    “Mullah Omar is healthy and has no heart trouble. He is in Afghanistan. If the Americans know where he is, then why don’t they arrest him and claim the reward?”
    Pakistan’s ambassador to America also dismissed the Washington Post report as baseless. Hussain Haqqani said: “Sometimes intelligence tips received by professionals turn out to be wrong. The story about Mullah Omar falls in that category.”

    some UPDATE:

    Pakistan Army, Afghan Taliban reject report about Mullah Omar's surgery in Karachi

    The Pakistan Army has dismissed the report about Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Omar's surgery in Karachi with the help of Pakistan's spy agency as "unfounded and concocted".

    "An ISPR spokesman strongly contradicted the news item that appeared in the local and international media about the medical treatment of Afghan Taliban Mullah Mohammad Omar at Karachi," Pakistan's Inter Services Public Relations said in a "clarification" released on Thursday.

    "He [ISPR spokesman] said that news is unfounded and concocted to serve vested interests," it added.

    Meanwhile, the Afghan Taliban have also dismissed the report as the "enemy's baseless claims" that Mullah Omar was treated in Karachi.

    "The Afghanistan Islamic Emirate categorically rejects the unfounded and groundless claims by the enemy and describes such rumours as part of propaganda war launched by the enemy," Xinhua quoted a Taliban statement, as saying.

    Released by Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, the Pashto-language statement said that Mullah Omar was not suffering from any such disease that would require hospitalisation.

    "The enemy is spreading all these rumours to hide their military defeat (in Afghanistan) and to divert attention of the people," the statement said.

    The Washington Post had reported on Wednesday that an intelligence network, operating under the auspices of a private company- "The Eclipse Group"- said the elusive, one-eyed leader of the Afghan Taliban was "rushed" to the hospital on January 7 by Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency.

    Its source was a physician in the Karachi hospital, who was not identified in the report.

    "While I was not personally in the operating theatre, my evaluation based on what I have heard and seeing the patient in the hospital is that Mullah Omar had a cardiac catheter complication resulting in either bleeding or a small cerebral vascular incident, or both," the physician was quoted, as saying.

    The Taliban statement said the "enemy has neither any document nor any proof to prove their claims."

    "The source of unnamed doctor as weak as he himself admits that he had not seen Mullah Omar but had heard from other doctors," it added.
