Taliban Retake Province

According to the Indian newspaper The Hindu, the Afghan province of Zabul is now under Taliban control. Instapundit mentioned this a few days ago, but I didn't trust his sources; the confirmation now comes from Stratfor and while I haven't seen it yet on RFE-RL, major papers are starting to pick it up. From Zabul, the Taliban can threaten American positions around the old Taliban spiritual capital of Qandahar. Sify News, an Indian business site I'm not familiar with, claims this is a sign that Taliban plans to regroup while the U.S. was committed in Iraq may be working.
