Mohammad Ashan, a Taliban commander in eastern Afghanistan, now has bigger problems than being hard up for cash. He was reportedly arrested last week while attempting to score the $100 reward offered on his own wanted poster:
When U.S. troops went to confirm that Ashan had in fact come forward to claim the finder’s fee, they were initially incredulous.
“We asked him, ‘Is this you?’ Mohammad Ashan answered with an incredible amount of enthusiasm, ‘Yes, yes, that’s me! Can I get my award now?’” recalled SPC Matthew Baker.
Always read the small print!
