“at a May 15, 2001 meeting in Berlin [Germany] [to negotiate a deal for a gas pipeline through Afghanistan]…a U.S. official ominously presented the following ultimatum to the Pakistani delegation (who were the Taliban’s interlocutors at the meeting), ‘Either you accept our offer of a carpet of gold, or we bury you under a carpet of bombs.’ ”
