These folks are definitely bout that life…
The U.S.-led military coalition says a senior leader of an al-Qaeda linked terror group has been captured in northern Afghanistan, dressed up like a woman.
NATO said on Tuesday the capture was the latest in a series of cases involving male militants disguised as females.
It says a joint Afghan-coalition force apprehended the leader of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan and two of his associates during a nighttime operation Monday in Kunduz city. The suspects’ names were not disclosed.
NATO says the militant wore a burqa — an all-enveloping cloak worn by some Muslim women.
The coalition says that in the past two months there have been several arrests of suspected militants wearing burqas to disguise themselves in order not to be caught by Afghan-led forces.
It’s funny to us that as sexist as some of the Arab world is, some of these Al Qaeda extremist are willing to get their Mrs. Doubtfire on just to sneak past U.S. officials. Desperate times, desperate mesasures we suppose.
