The Taliban had previously refused to meet directly with any members of Afghanistan's government, calling them "Western puppets". The Taliban's relationship with al-Qaeda was the main reason for the U.S. invasion almost 18 years ago.

Meyers, 30, survived on an apple a day during the first five days of his incarceration because food in the facility is inedible and the water is unclean, TMZ reports. Furthermore, insiders claim there is a prisoner in the cell next to Rocky's who has "severe mental issues who slams his head against the concrete wall and hurls feces every which way".

The source also explains how the Swedish government has reportedly violated Rocky's rights as an American citizen. The incident led to Rocky and two associates being arrested by Stockholm authorities.

His attorney, Henrik Olsson Lilja, filed an appeal to challenge the district court's decision to hold him without bond because he is a possible flight risk, but that motion was denied by Sweden's Supreme Court, according to Agence France-Presse (AFP). The site points out that this is a violation of the Vienna Convention for Consular Relations treaty (signed by both Sweden and the U.S.), which grants foreign arrestees a visit from a U.S. Consulate official. According to reports, Rocky is facing up to six years behind bars for his hand in the assault. While the Consulate was eventually granted access to Rocky two days later, they were unable to have a private meeting, being shadowed by a pair of Swedish guards. The fight reportedly erupted several minutes later when the man continued to hound Rocky and his crew, and after a woman claimed the man had groped her.
