A Sunny spring day beckons and the Torygraph (page 17 today) reports that the ever perfidious Gulbuddin Hekmatyr has renounced the Taliban (again) and is ready to schmooze with Karzai and his criminal pals in what passes for a Gubment in those parts.
They also report the Iranian spy chief Ali Reza Azkari (last seen Istanbul Feb 7th see pic) has done a deal and been "turned" by Mossad with the prospect of oodles of boodle, to spill the beans on his time as Iranian deputy defence Minister...
