WASHINGTON — The Taliban’s top military commander was captured several days ago in Karachi, Pakistan, in a secret joint operation by Pakistani and American intelligence forces, according to American government officials.

Great news, but what I want to know is:
1. Is he being tortured? The NYT article stated that "his capture had provided a window into the Taliban and could lead to other senior officials"
So he's obviously talking. How did they get him to talk?
2. If he is being tortured, how can the Obama administration let that happen?
3. Why was this story 'sat-on'?
While I'm glad this guy got caught, he is in the hands of the Pakistanis, which aren't exactly our buddies.

Something tells me that Pakistan doesn't Mirandize their captives.

I'm thinking that poor bastard is wishing he had been sent off to Gitmo and water boarded. Instead he's in some Pakistani hell-hole.
Where are the lefties that were screaming against torture just a couple of years ago?
Where are the lefties that were screaming about rendition? How is this any different?
Oh, I'm sorry, it's rendition Obama style.
