Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The talks were with Afghan officials, that was the whole point.

This whole story was a topic of much (relatively astonished) discussion in my office today... people weren't sure whether it was more hilarious, or more disturbing.

I go with disturbing.

I'm going with hilarious. It probably does less damage than whatever else the Americans were going to do with the money.
