HA! A local politcian did this just before the election. Who would have guessed that politicians and the Teliban would have so much in common??

"Taliban have included all 4 of my email addresses on the leaked distribution list," tweeted journalist Mustafa Kazemi, a prolific Kabul-based tweeter with more than 9,500 followers. "Quite reassuring to my safety."

A "prolific" tweeter has 9,500 followers?
Some dude who runs around twittering shiat is a "journalist?"

Maybe he does good work maybe he doesn't but man those words just took a huge beating today.

CSB Time:

Had a guest who appears on one of our shows send a boatload of e-mails about a missing payment (only $250.00) that we had actually paid. I responded to the e-mail chain between me, her, and one of the producers with a copy of the check which she had signed. The producer responds, "I don't know if she's just crazy, she's lying, or both" and sends it to BOTH of us instead of just sending it to me. Of course, she went batshiat and began sending e-mails to one of the VPs, trying to get the producer fired.
However, she went too far with her e-mailing and the VP ended up taking the producers side. She really was crazy. She's not a household name, but I've seen her a few times on CNN. I always wonder if she's giving them the same shiat she used to give us. We don't book her anymore.

Lumpmoose: It was a press release sent out mostly to journalists who care about such things as a Taliban press release. This situation seems more like "OMG, your IT department sucks. Now I'll get spammed!" more than "OMG, you've just revealed your entire criminal organization!"


Yeah...but it's still hilarious.

Doom MD: Savian: The increase coincides with the end of the annual Taliban fighting season, prompting one local journalist to joke, "I guess when fighting season ends, emailing season begins."

Fighting season? What a bunch of dumbasses.
Fighting season is essentially ended by the onset of winter due to difficulty to navigate the landscape, iirc. They discuss it in Restrapo, which is a fantastic documentary.


It also came up in the VP debate, IIRC.

i started working with computers at the department of commerce in the early/mid 90's. we had banyan. we used banyan mail...not the gui 'beyond mail'. use the arrows, keystrokes, the whole bit.

well...if you walked away from your computer without locking it, we would draft an email to Secretary Ron Brown and leave it up on your screen, unsent. Mail had a weirds set of keystrokes to get the mail off the screen without just sending.

well, greg left to go talk to the ladies one afternoon and we drafted a great one to the secretary...

Ron-

if i may call you ron. you are one sexy man. i want to do nasty things to you in your office....you get the picture....

love greg ext 3000


well, greg gets back and hits the wrong thing and blam...it goes. you could feel the pressure change from all the puckering that just happened. we rush down to the secretary's office and find that he isn't there. we steal his computer because 'it's broken' (what we told his office manager) and leave. he had a mac...with a humongous monitor. nice fish tank at the time too.

we didn't know much about how networks worked but we wanted to stop him from logging in. i've since learned that most powerful people don't login. they ahve people do it for them. well, we changed his password, logged in as him and deleted the email.

our government boss (i was a contractor) came in and asked what all the fuss was about. after a few minutes we realized that he knew we were up to something. he finally just asked...who didn't hit the right keys and who did it go to. he laughed...told us to never do it again (which we broke the next day but only amongst ourselves).

we replaced the mac, gave the office manager the new password and went on our way.

a few months later, greg was hitting on one of the girls in the secretarys office and the office manager told the girl to not bother since greg was gay and had a thing for ron brown. evidently...she read the email.

Craig Fenson: Good afternoon. In the past few weeks, through our national hotline, we have collected hundreds of names of suspected terrorists, and I'm proud to say that most of the calls have come from high school and college students nationwide. In fact, we received over 475 calls alone regarding this man: M'Balz Es-Hari. We also received information on such nefarious terrorists such as Graabir Boubi, and Haid D'Salaami and.. let this be a message to you, Haid D'Salaami: we will not play your dangerous games We are also currently searching for a man we believe to be a Al Queda leutinant: Hous Bin Pharteen, his cousin I-Bin Pharteen, and their close companion I-Zheet M'Drurz. Question over there?

Reporter #1: Is there a way to identify Hous Bin Pharteen?

Craig Fenson: Ah.. our operatives have picked up his scent. Also, according to our intelligence, he is targeting gas refineries, fertilizer plants, and, oddly enough, baked bean canneries. He is a silent, but deadly killer.

Reporter #2: What can you tell us about I-Zheet M'Drurz?

Craig Fenson: We're told that, when he was fleeing the scene of his last attack, he left skidmarks. He is extremely dangerous. Our sources say that he is planning on attacking the New York City sewer system with what we believe it is to be a dirty bomb.

Reporter #3: Do you have any other names you're willing to release?

Craig Fenson: Yes! Please call our hotline at once if you have any information on the following men: Shaif Hirboush.. Al-Suq Akweer.. Mustaf Herod Apyur Poupr. I hope I got that right! Awan Afuqya.. Yul Strokheet Al-Wauch.. Apul Madeek - who we believe will be targeting adult bookstores sometime in the near future. And this man, the notorious Yuliqa M'Diq, A.K.A. Uwana M'Diq, A.K.A. Usuqa M'Diq. Uh.. thank you, that is all, and, "Live, from New York, it's Saturday Night!"

Fighting season? What a bunch of dumbasses.

Almost as though most of the fighting is done in the mountainous regions of Afghanistan - along the Pakistan border, mostly - making fighting in the cold, snowy winter months...something of a hardship.

In a nutshell, that's pretty accurate (though they have more than 2, smartass). It's tough to fight in the winter, when all that snow and ice makes the mountains tough to attack from and retreat to. Search the googles for "Afghanistan fighting season" - I did, and pretty much every result describes the spring as the start of fighting season, and winter as its end.

signaljammer: Y'all do realize the Taliban are ultimately gonna attrit their way to victory just as they did against the Russians, don'tcha?

And their women remain enslaved.Yay for them.


The US military is up to, what, maybe 30% female? Which means the remaining 70% is male? I used to belong to the National Organization of Women during the 90s. I remember receiving literature expressing concern about the plight of women in this region. A petition was included. It demanded that the US government intervene and do something about those poor women. I wondered what the government should do? I felt the petition implied the that the United States government should send our military into Afghanistan to save the women. I threw that literature away, picked the phone up, and cancelled my membership with the National Organization of Women. I never rejoined.

It is not the responsibility of US military personnel to save the women of Afghanistan while their own wives sleep alone. Women are great, but men have value also. Don't be so quick to sacrifice ours.
