Pakistani Taliban leader calls Obama 'our foremost enemy'

Pakistan's extremist Taliban movement acknowledged Tuesday that its leader, Baitullah Mehsud, had died in the aftermath of a U.S. drone missile attack early this month and confirmed that two men would replace him. One of the new leaders, Waliur Rehman, later issued threats against the West in a telephone interview with reporters.
