    The Wall Street Journal reported that Mullah Baradar was sedated when the afghan peace delegation arrived.

    Sounds like a Peter Sellers movie.

    original article here excerpts below:

    Afghan officials have also pushed for the release of Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, the Taliban's former second-in-command, who has been in Pakistani custody since his arrest in 2010, to open a potential negotiating channel. Mr. Sharif said Saturday he would discuss access to Mr. Baradar with the Afghan president.

    Afghan officials were angered that Mr. Baradar was sedated and unable to communicate when an Afghan peace delegation visited Karachi to see him earlier in November.

    "We will discuss this matter at length today, and we jointly have agreed on a mechanism and we will see that it is properly implemented," Mr. Sharif said. "Anybody who is sent by the president to Pakistan to talk to Mullah Baradar, we will carry out the instructions given to us by the president and will make sure that such meetings will take place."
