    In a Dilbert-esque faux pax, a Taliban spokesperson sent out a routine email last week with one notable difference. He publicly CC'd the names of everyone on his mailing list.

    The names were disclosed in an email by Qari Yousuf Ahmedi, an official Taliban spokesperson, on Saturday. The email was a press release he received from the account of Zabihullah Mujahid, another Taliban spokesperson. Ahmedi then forwarded Mujahid's email to the full Taliban mailing list, but rather than using the BCC function, or blind carbon copy which keeps email addresses private, Ahmedi made the addresses public.

    The list, made up of more than 400 recipients, consists mostly of journalists, but also includes an address appearing to belong to a provincial governor, an Afghan legislator, several academics and activists, an l Afghan consultative committee, and a representative of Gulbuddein Hekmatar, an Afghan warlord whose outlawed group Hezb-i-Islami is believed to be behind several attacks against coalition troops.

    You can see the entire list at the link above.


    From the same site, explaining the complexity of the war in Afghanistan and how hard it is to understand it from a single point of view... Preface the passage below with the fact that Texas is a little larger than Afghanistan and has about the same population.

    Have you been to Texas? The place is huge. It is complex. Imagine that a Chinese-led Coalition of 40 nations comes to Texas and wages war in counties all around, trying to force those well-armed and highly motivated Texans that the Chinese way is their way. There are Chinese air strikes night and day, and Chinese helicopters roaring around shooting Texans who are emplacing IEDs. Some Texans join the Chinese-led Army of Texas just to spy on or to shoot Chinese trainers. Mexico is the new Pakistan, with a drug war more serious and brutal than the one in Afghanistan. The Mexicans are making money off of the Chinese, whom they hate, and so the Mexicans do not want the war to end because big bucks are injected into their economy. Mexicans allow Texans to re-arm and train in Mexico, and spend their winters on Mexican beaches, plotting their spring campaigns.

    Interesting that a large portion of those emails use free services.

    Doesn't that make them harder to trace? At least that is what they say on all the crime shows.

    You guys realize you're mostly spamming war correspondents, right?

    Of course, I would assume they've all changed their e-mails by now anyway.

    You do realize all of this is tongue in cheek? Nobody is actually signing anyone up.
