#5 Two hours with a Dremel, some lemon juice, and some Kosher salt.

Not to get him to talk. Just because.

#9 Let the Afghans have at him. I understand they're quite good at the old "tortured screams" bit.

#11 Remember Bush's speech? We caught So-and-So and he led us to So-and-So. So-and-So talked, and he led us to So-and-So. Again, So-and-So talked and we got So-and-So and the story goes on! All these So-and-So's are in Gitmo, soon (well maybe later) to be joined by another of their kind.

Thanks to all our troops (military and our IC) on the ground, on this special day, for what they have given, to make this happen. And will continue to make happen.

#13 YES YES YES YES YES YES AND YES. Just finished watching Path 9/11, started reading the blogs and caught this too, through Instapundit. Hek' a rat bastard and we spent a year trying to kill him. This won't make since, but that Tarin Kowt bombing--Hek. Wedding bombings--Hek. Raising money (back in '05) for the sundry spring offensives/bombings--Hek.

An HVT worth having. Get him to gitmo and then get him gone.

Well done, 10th ID.

#14 This is wonderful news. Thank you.

#15 I daresay Hekmatyar has at least a clue as to the whereabouts of Osama and his butt-buddy Zahari. At least good enough intel to give us an idea of his recent hideouts, habits, mules, and allies.

I would make him regret the day his mother brought him into the world...for every soldier, sailor, and marine that have died or been wounded because of him.

#18 btw - if his acolytes are any representation, he can't pitch. They throw grenades like little girls

#19 From Michael Ledeen at The Corner:

Hekmatiar is a particularly evil man, who has been Iran's main agent of murder in Afghanistan for many years. He had just received a substantial quantity of anti-aircraft and anti-tank weapons from the mullahs, and his capture is truly wonderful news. Waydo go, guys!

#20 HA HA!!

Damn gutless cowards, the lot of them. They talk tough, but when cornered they give up without a whimper. Big men, killing innocent, unarmed people.

Fuckin' pussies. Torture and then kill them all. Slowly. Oh, so very slowly.

#23 Darth, you nailes it. The big boys obviously are not real hot to meet allan anytime soon. They enjoy the infidel perks of being grand poobah mullah too much.
