A top Taliban commander has claimed that al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden was behind the February attack outside a US base in Afghanistan during US Vice President Dick Cheney's visit, according to an interview aired Wednesday on Al-Jazeera. Mullah Dadullah, the Taliban's top military commander, told Al-Jazeera that bin Laden planned and supervised the attack that killed 23 people outside the big US base at Bagram during Cheney's visit. "You may remember the martyr operation inside the Bagram base, which targeted a senior US official. ... That operation was the result of his wise planning. He (bin Laden) planned that operation and guided us through it. The operation was a success," Dadullah told Al-Jazeera.
