Straight from NY Times: "Special forces units in Chechnya killed at least eight militants Friday in an operation that was personally commanded by the Chechen president, Ramzan A. Kadyrov, according to the Chechen government’s Web site. Mr. Kadyrov later told the Ria Novosti news agency that Abubakar Pashaev, the leader of a militant group active in the Gudermes region of Chechnya, was killed in the operation."
Okay, I guess it's good that they're on top of the militants in the region, but seriously, what the hell? I'm pretty sure presidents are not supposed to lead special forces units or go on missions. That is crazytown. You're supposed to be a politician now, Kadyrov, not a general or a thug!
