Karzai-the west failed
http://www.spiegel.de/international/worl...12907.html

"...In an interview with SPIEGEL ONLINE, Karzai paints a grim picture of the situation in his homeland. The number of extremists continues to grow, neighboring states are using the country as a venue for their geopolitical power struggles, and the former president accuses the U.S., first and foremost, of being too forgiving of Pakistan, the Taliban's most important supporter...."

"One of the ironies of the situation is that while the United States knew about and told us about the sanctuaries and the training grounds in Pakistan and that all that violence was coming to us from Pakistan, they treated Pakistan as an ally and supported the Pakistani army with billions of dollars and continue to do so today...."

Forgive me for wanting to crotch kick that SOB. Karzai is a two faced, corrupt politician. He should have been in the US Senate.

Agreed on all of that. But something that’s true doesn’t stop being true, just because a scumbag agrees with it.

Yeah, all true. But he is right that we have allowed the Pakistan equivalent of the CIA to help the Taliban kill our people.
