That was exactly the rookie mistake made by Taliban spokesman Qari Yousuf Ahmedi last week, ABC News reports, which resulted in Ahmedi inadvertently disclosing his full mailing list of more than 400 email addresses.Ahmedi is one of two official
spokesmen for the Islamic fundamentalist movement, the other being
Zabiullah Mujahid. Ahmedi was reportedly forwarding a press release he
received from Mujahid when he mistakenly put recipients' addresses in
"cc" field, causing contacts he meant to keep private to be viewable to
everyone on the list.
According to the ABC News report, most of those addresses belonged to
journalists. That's bad news (no pun intended), because in war-torn
Afghanistan, targeted attacks on journalists are commonplace.
