Habeas Mullahus

Rebel mullah Muqtada al-Sadr's followers are insisting he has not fled to Iran, and remains in Iraq.
Maybe Mr. al-Sadr's henchmen are telling the truth: as I said yesterday, I think there are more problems for Mr. al-Sadr if he flees than not -- decamping would seem to be against all the Revolutionary Leader rules at this point. Still, whatever his status, his minions would claim he hadn't fled anyway, wouldn't they ?
Until Mr. al-Sadr turns up someplace and does some blovating, or his acolytes start milling around looking leaderless, Mr. al-Sadr's real whereabouts must be considered a mystery.
