A profoundly disturbing report issued brazenly by a Taliban commander under the noses of our "Afghan ally":

Kabul- The Afghan Taliban have created a special unit to avenge the killing of Al-Qaeda's leader by US special forces in Pakistan on Monday, a commander in eastern Afghanistan has told Al-Jazeera. "We have created a special unit to avenge the martyr Sheikh Osama Bin Laden," Dawran Safi told the Qatar-based Arabic satellite TV channel. "We will take forward his standard and wage war against foreigners and their agents," Safi said in an interview from the Afghan capital, Kabul.

As Diana West observes,

Presidential palace perhaps? Good thing Obama didn't release the Osama pics and really stir things up.
