    Mullah Mansour has been killed literally within months of being declared the new leader of the Taliban in Afghanistan. Technically he was in charge of operations for at least two years prior to his official succession of Mullah Omar, Taliban founder. Mansour showed his true colors when he declined everyone the burden to worry their pretty little heads about one small detail — Omar died two years ago. The US were quick to react by sending a drone into its very own ally Pakistan’s airspace to remind the Taliban and Karachi that the Obama administration also has a sense of humor. Joe Rogan, Omid Djalili and John Oliver deliver the funny, while Hasan Abdullah (political analyst and expert on Islamic militancy) shares his professional opinion.
