Apparently American four-star generals are not the only ones suffering from catastrophic email failure.

Via Foreign Policy, ABC news reports that a Taliban spokesman got the “bcc” and “cc” options mixed up on Saturday and accidentally revealed the addresses of over 400 recipients of a press release. One of those recipients, Kabul-based journalist Mustafa Kazemi, notes that the list includes the addresses of “a large number of Taliban personnel.” Oops.

So for those of you keeping track at home: That’s IDF, winning the internet. Taliban and American military and intelligence establishments, not so much.
