Man Who Led Taliban Peace Talks Was an Imposter
November 23, 2010

When it comes to this crazy war, it's hard enough finding the
enemies...but now we can't even be sure who our allies are. The U.S. and
Afghanistan sat down for peace talks with a senior Taliban official.

They met with him three times, and paid him a lot of cash to be part of
the negotiations. And then they discovered he's an imposter. No one knows who he is or why he impersonated a Taliban leader, but apparently
he brought better ideas to the table than the people in charge.
