Gul Mohammed Jangvi
In an article published on June 9, 2006 the Asia Times described Gul Mohammed Jangvi as a former captive in the Bagram Theater detention facility, who had been denounced and captured in 2003, tortured, and forced to join the Jaish Muslim. The Asia Times describes the Jaish Muslim as a "U.S. proxy".
On July 19, 2006 the Asia Times quoted Jangvi about the Taliban's unexpected withdrawal from hostilities. The Asia Times reported that the Taliban had allowed the Sangeen District of Helmand Province to surrender without much of a fight. The Asia Times reported that the Taliban felt that they could allow outrage over Israel's recent bombardment of Lebanon to recruit new supporters to their cause.
