Terrorist leader of the Taliban Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar would head the new Afghan government. According to reports from the Taliban on Friday, Baradar returned to Afghanistan after over a decade in exile to lead the country following the Taliban takeover.

Baradar was originally in prison, but was released in 2018 to lead the group in peace talks with the U.S. He masterminded multiple IED attacks over his years in power and referred to the bombs as “flowers.”

While the Taliban initially discussed forming a coalition, they have reportedly begun to lean towards governing by themselves.

One Taliban official went on to say, “all the top leaders have arrived in Kabul, where preparations are in final stages to announce the new government.”

Baradar stands as the only Taliban leader still alive and is in charge of the terrorist group’s political office.
