well not so simple, so if he is as bad a darkfriend as we all think.  Why o why was he and all of his Asha'men not at he cleansing trying to stop Rand and the others.  I would think the Forsaken who was giving him orders would have been told to bring his army of channelers to fight

If Taim is taking his orders from a male Forsaken, why would the Forsaken bother? With saidin cleansed a male Forsaken no longer has to rely on the Dark One to channel.

 

It's also entirely possible that he has a bigger role in the plans of the Shadow so they don't want to risk his cover being blown.

i dont know, sending every forsaken at rand to stop him seams to be putting pretty much all of their cards of the table.  it seams to me the DO really did not want this to happen and what do the Forsaken care if Taim and the Asha'man dont want the source cleansed.

I think it could be explain through arrogance.  The Forsaken are the epitome of arrogance.  They see themselves as far superior to the third age channelers.  I imagine in their minds they fully expected to handle Rand's rag-tag band of channelers.

 

Plus, I can imagine a Forsaken being humbled/humiliated by having to send in the Asha'man.  Even if they ordered Taim's forces, they would be admitting to needing help to subdue Rand's group.  That is not a very Forsaken thing to do.

That whole scene really made no sense from the Forsaken's point of view.  They knew that Rand was going to be there with a sa'angreal powerful enough to smoke the whole lot of them with a thought and had a lot of time to prepare and work out a basic strategy but yet had absolutely no plan beyond randomly walking around.  Aginor was the only one who managed to haphazardly wander close to him and perhaps if he'd had some backup, something useful could have occured.

 

I really don't know how this group of bumbling buffoons managed to almost take over a planet.

Simple, what would be better, to stop Siadin from being cleansed, or to be able to use it fully as a Dreadlord against the forces of light.
