Do you remember the American aid workers who were arrested by the Taliban in 2001? And of course you all know by now that Yale university has a student who was once an official in the Taliban's foreign ministry. Well it seems that this poor Yale student won't find peace in the "land of the infidels" because his past will continue to haunt him. Here is Yale student Syed Rahmatullah Hashmi participating in the arrest of the aid workers (who could have been executed back then) and showing very dangerous stuff the Taliban found with the girls.
I am not sure though but I guess Yale, supposedly a beacon of liberal arts education in the US, was against the arrest of the aid workers and what happened to them afterwards. Will it ask its student to explain where he stands now?
