ABSTRACT
The article discusses the status of Mullah Mohammed Omar. Although he has not been seen publicly for nearly nine years, Mullah Omar is widely regarded as the unifying inspirational force behind the militant Taliban insurgency in Afghanistan. Should it emerge that Omar is dead, the Taliban could fall prey to factionalism within its ranks.
