Cross-Dressing Taliban Leader Killed; 72 Virgins Fighting Over Who Gets His Clothes

Another supremely “brave” Taliban jihadist not only hiding behind women and children, but blending in with them as best he could, has gone on to his eternal reward as the inspiration for a Middle-East remake of To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything Julie Newmar.

From the AFP:

A SENIOR Taliban commander disguised in women’s clothes was killed by Afghan and international forces when he fired on troops trying to catch him south of Kabul.

NATO and Afghan security forces cornered Ghulam Sakhi at a compound in Logar province’s Puli Alam district, and called for women and children to leave the building, a coalition statement said.

“As they were exiting, Sakhi came out with the group disguised in women’s attire and pulled out a pistol and a grenade and shot at the security force,” the statement by NATO’s International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said.

“When Afghan and coalition forces shot him, he dropped the grenade and it detonated, wounding a woman and two children,” it said.

If the grenade detonated between his legs, his 72 virgins will merely think there’s a 73rd virgin in the smoked-jihadist waiting-room. Sorry pal.
