I Want My Money

Once again, we see that good will always triumph because evil is dumb:

Mohammad Ashan, a mid-level Taliban commander in Paktika province, strolled toward a police checkpoint in the district of Sar Howza with a wanted poster bearing his own face. He demanded the finder’s fee referenced on the poster: $100.

Afghan officials, perplexed by the man’s misguided motives, arrested him on the spot. Ashan is suspected of plotting at least two attacks on Afghan security forces. His misdeeds prompted officials to plaster the district with hundreds of so-called “Be on the Lookout” posters emblazoned with his name and likeness.

This is one of the advantages of fighting an enemy who think education and literacy are evil. This isn’t the first time I’ve heard of terrorists being done in by extreme stupidity. There have been reports of Taliban suicide bombers accidentally detonating during group hugs.

Time to print up some more posters. Maybe we can get the guys who poisoned schoolgirls.
