Mullah Malang was born 1957 in Badghis Province. He was a tenacious fighter against the Soviets. Mullah Malang (aka: Saleh Muhammd) was a CIA’s special friend with close links with US oil company UniCoal.
Karzai ignored Mullah Malang and offered Kandahar governorship to Haji Gul Agha Sheerazi and promised National Security Advisorship to strong warlord Mullah Malang which latter refused to accept but preferred to become a member of Afghan parliament. Now his influence is vanished. Mullah Malang having tremendous amount of influence in Eastern Afghan provinces of Urzgan, Zabul Farah, Zabul and Kandahar itself remained closely linked with CIA. He frequently travelled to United States at the expense of UniCoal.(20110716)
