Whatever Happened to Mullah Omar?

That's what I wondered when I saw a Reuters story that "Afghan and NATO troops have surrounded more than 200 Taliban insurgents and their feared military commander"...Mullah Dadullah.

Sure, they may be closing in on Dadullah, a one-legged leader of the Taliban. But what of Omar, the one-eyed supreme leader of the Taliban, now, like Bin Laden, on the lam for more than four years?

Btw: there's evidently more than one Mullah Omar.
