Rereading the books, it seems that both Vein and Nicola provide evidence for Taim causing trouble after Tarmon Gaidon. And maybe Demandred really was clueless regarding the renegades' orders. If Taim is a new Mordeth (powered by a non-shadow evil), the turnings could be akin to Fain's business with the Trollocs.

We never actually learn how Taim did get free. Rand said to his face somethink like "I heard your followers helped..." but Taim never agrees or denies it.

One presumes that there had to be inside help. The Aes Sedai have been doing this for a while now and are very good at it. Some channelers are on their own but the more successful channelers who declare themselves to be false dragons usually have armies with them yet none of them have ever broken free.

Are we to beleive that after 3,000 years Taim's followers who may have been compitent soliders overcame the 13 Aes Sedai (minimum) who would be guarding him, not to mention the Warders and the Tower Guard with them? How come Logain's followers were not able to do it or any of the other famous false dragons followers?
