Taliban tunnels hundreds of prisoners out of Afghan prison

The headline:  Taliban tunnels at least 480 out of Afghan prison

The link:  http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/as_afghanistan

The summary:  Almost 500 prisoners being held in an Afghanistan prison escaped overnight through a tunnel that was dug under the prison over a period of months by the Taliban.

The reaction:  I thought this kind of stuff only happened in books and movies.  I didn’t realize the “dig a tunnel under the prison” scheme could really work.

But apparently it does!  How do you get almost 500 people out of a prison within a matter of hours without a single guard noticing or a shot being fired?  Sounds like an inside job to me.
