Three steps forward two-and-a-half back?

 

A spokesman for the Taliban has denied that they accepted Russia-paid bounties to carry out attacks on Americans and other coalition soldiers, saying that the group needed no such encouragement for its operations. But one American official said the focus had been on criminals closely associated with the Taliban.

So not-Taliban-Taliban are the culprits now.

… the Taliban are known to have hired local criminals as freelancers, said Gen. Zaman Mamozai, the former police chief of the province.

This story gets more full of shit the more you read.

The central claim arrived with zero corroborating evidence that a wire transfer ever even happened.

When you’re talking about Afghan criminal networks with money, the obvious answer is: OPIUM TRAFFICKING. But, that gets no mention in the NY Times, as if there was no opium trafficking in the world’s #1 source for opium.
