It has been reported that Mullah Zaeef, the Taliban's former ambassador to Pakistan is using an Apple iPhone in Afghanistan. "I'm addicted," he said, "the internet is great on this, very fast."
Are you familiar with the old song "Rubber Band Man"? Imagine it redone to the tune of "The Taliban Man" - it might help the group spiff up their image! The New York Times is reporting that the T-ban have "embarked on a sophisticated information war, using modern media tools as well as some old-fashioned ones, to soften their image and win favor with local Afghans as they try to counter the Americans’ new campaign to win Afghan hearts and minds." They're going to stop burning schools and cutting folks' ears off, you know, that kind of thing! Hopefully, they'll get a verified twitter account soon! Rock on ye Mighty Turbans!
