A mid-level Taliban commander might become known as the dumbest terrorist on the planet.
Mohammad Ashan was working his way up into becoming a classified terrorist commander, when he came up with what was probably his brightest idea ever. He went to the local police station in April 2012 and showed the police officers that he was the very same Mohammad Ashan for whom they had recently issued a wanted warrant. The officials stared in disbelief as the criminal pointed towards his own picture and explaining he was indeed the wanted man, while looking extremely elated and happy with himself. The police arrested him, but still couldn’t believe any criminal would be so dumb as to actually do something so stupid. They couldn’t believe their eyes when the terrorist passed a biometric scan that proved he was indeed Ashan. he man soon became the local punch line for a great number of jokes, some of which depicted him as idiotic as the burglars from the Home Alone movies.
It turned out Ashan just wanted to get the $100 reward for his own head!
