The seventh cricket match at the ICC World Cup 2015 is currently being played between Afghanistan and Bangladesh at Canberra. While the match is far from over, the US Embassy in Kabul it seems already knows the result of the ongoing match.

A trigger-happy embassy official has sent out a tweet via the official Embassy account, congratulating Afghanistan over its victory against Bangladesh today. With more than half the match still left, seems like the United States knows something we do not. While this could be an honest mistake, it doesn’t bode well for a country already infamous for spying on its own people as well as others. It seems like Big Brother’s eyes are firmly on the ongoing Cricket World Cup. At the time of filing the story, the tweet has already seen more than 200 retweets and 83 favorites. The officials at the embassy saw the funny side of this and posted another tweet.

 

As expected, the tweet triggered hysteria on Twitter. From people teaching the Embassy on how to tweet, to some claiming it’s a conspiracy theory, here are select tweets.
