For sale

Human lives in exchange for a convenient escape.

First there is a little rehabilitation to help the sales pitch:
Britain and the United States are pressing for United Nations sanctions against 18 former senior Taliban figures to be lifted later this month in the strongest indication yet that the western powers are looking for a negotiated peace with the Taliban.
After all,  
Qalamuddin, the former head of the religious police, said however the Taliban had "changed". 
Like this?
Taliban gunmen have killed the headteacher of a girls' school near the Afghan capital after he ignored warnings to stop teaching girls, government officials have said.
 As for the Afghan people? Well some have a more down-to-earth view:
The Taliban are not our brothers, they are our killers.
