Taliban Fighters Hide in Giant Afghan Marijuana Forest.

Taliban fighters are using giant Afghan marijuana forests for hiding. You read that right: marijuana forest.

"We tried burning [the marijuana forests] with white phosphorous - it didn't work," said Gen Hillier.

"We tried burning them with diesel - it didn't work. The plants are so full of water right now... that we simply couldn't burn them."

He noted that a couple of brown plants on the edges of some of the forests had caught fire but this had posed yet another problem.

"A section of soldiers that was downwind from that had some ill effects and decided that was probably not the right course of action," he said, speaking dryly, according to Reuters.

Y'know, I think the answer is obvious. Carpet the forest with rolling papers, pipes and lighters.

"Dude... There's some infidels over there..."
"Dude, ya think we should like... what?"
