"We are hearing from Mola Omar (SP???) in the spiritual capital of Afghanistan. Mola Omar is the spiritual leader of the Taliban here, and has recently issued a short statement. In that statement he criticizes what he called the act of terrorism and he was very explicit, he said that Osama Bin Laden was not responsible for it, he says that all he wanted for his country was peace and peace for other countries in the world.
