Washington, Nov. 16 (ANI): The sex scandal that ensnared CIA chief David Petraeus has prompted laughter among the Taliban.
Petraeus resigned last week to pre-empt revelations that he had an affair with his married biographer Paula Broadwell, bringing to an end a glittering military career that included commanding NATO forces fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan.
A stony-faced Taliban official burst into laughter at the mention of the Petraeus affair during an interview to a foreign news agency in northwest Pakistan this week.
"What a bastard! But all Americans are the same, it's nothing new," the official said, who did not want to be named.
According to the New York Daily News, the Islamists dealt harshly with adulterers during their brutal 1996-2001 rule in Afghanistan.
