General Petraeus Spokesman: Mullah Omar Not Captured

I see steady reports that Mullah Omar is captured in Pakistan, so this morning I emailed to Colonel Erik Gunhus on General Petraeus's staff in Afghanistan. I asked Colonel Gunhus if Mullah Omar is captured.

..."No, he isn't Michael."
Those who pump out unsubstantiated rumors empower those who seek to discredit conservatives. It is like the "birther" story. I suspect that both are produced by Axelrod who puts them out hoping that his opponents will fixate on them and let real stories get by while setting themselves up for ridicule. If it ever turned out to be true then we should be ready to use it against the administration for concealing it, otherwise this is a waste of time.
