In June 2007, Mullah Bakht Mohammed said: "Sheikh Osama Bin Laden is alive and active. He’s carrying out his duties. The latest proof that he is alive is that he sent me a letter of condolences after the martyrdom of my brother. He advised me to follow my brother’s path." [ [ Taliban: Bin Laden alive and well] ]

On December 29, 2007 Mullah Bakht Mohammed was removed from his post as military commander by Mullah Omar due to insubordination. [cite web|url=|title=Taleban sack military commander|accessdate=2007-12-29]
