pipedreams Posted October 13, 2021 Share Posted October 13, 2021 "At least 14 of the 33 ministers the Taliban announced as senior leaders in its newly formed government are designated as terrorists under the U.N. Security Council's 1988 Sanctions Committee. This designation includes Prime Minister Mullah Mohammad Hassan Akhund and his two top deputies, Mullah Baradar Akhund and Mawlavi Hanafi. The Taliban's defense minister, foreign minister, and deputy foreign minister also are designated terrorists. And Sirajuddin Haqqani, the Taliban's interior minister, remains on the FBI's most wanted list, with a $10 million bounty for his role in a 2008 terrorist attack in Kabul that killed six people, including an American citizen. https://freebeacon.com/national-security/nearly-half-of-the-taliban-governments-leaders-are-designated-terrorists/ In addition to the Taliban senior leadership's designation as global terrorists, the organization also brought on four of the five individuals known as the "Taliban Five"—a group of former Guantanamo Bay prisoners who were freed as part of a prisoner swap orchestrated by the former Obama administration."
