Reports: Taliban Leader Mullah Mohammad Omar Has Been Killed

This is just starting to get out on various news sites, mostly overseas.  It has not been confirmed by the US and as of this moment is not being reported on any of the MSM news sites.  If true it would be HUGE news following up on the death of OBL.

Update; Reuters is reporting a strong denial from the Taliban.  This doesn't look like it's going anywhere.

The BBC reported he was killed in 2008.

Expect a continuing string of reports of bin Laden's successor and/or seconds or thirds in-command, "key leaders" etc. killed whenever it appears enthusiasm for the Forever War is flagging.
