ISAF killing Taliban leaders by the dozens. Also meaning of the word "leader"

Frustrating news from Spencer Ackerman at the Danger Room:
Since January 2011, the U.S.-led coalition in Afghanistan claims it’s killed or captured over 100 insurgent “leaders.” Too bad it doesn’t have any clear idea what “leader” means. Any insurgent who commands another person apparently qualifies. And worse, by that criteria, Taliban and aligned insurgents have killed twice as many U.S. troops in the same time period.
We're losing a lot more "leaders" than they are? We're approaching 11 years in Afghanistan. That's several years too long.

Be sure to read the whole thing.
