Fugitive Taliban leader Mullah Omar said he has not seen Osama bin Laden since the hard-line Afghan militia lost power five years ago, a newspaper reported Thursday. Omar also said the Taliban and al-Qaida still share the joint goal of driving US forces out of Afghanistan, according to Pakistan's influential Dawn daily. The authenticity of the comments could not be confirmed. Qari Yousef Ahmadi, who often speaks for the Taliban, told The Associated Press that the remarks were from the militia but did not come directly from Omar. Omar's whereabouts have been a mystery since he went into hiding after the Taliban was toppled in a US-led invasion after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
