Did he condemn Green-On-Blue attacks this forcefully? Or is he just trying to do what he can to stay in power longer than fifteen minutes after the last American troops finally leave?
“Afghan president condemns U.S. airstrike that killed a child,” from Reuters, November 28:
KABUL (Reuters) – President Hamid Karzai said U.S. forces had bombed a home in southern Afghanistan, killing a small child and wounding two women, and condemned the attack as a sign of disregard for civilian lives, his spokesman said on Thursday.
The strike could not have come at a worse time, as Karzai is engaged in a stand-off with the U.S. government over a bilateral security agreement that will decide whether U.S. troop stay in Afghanistan beyond 2014.
“It shows that U.S. forces have no respect for the decisions of the Loya Jirga and life of civilians in Afghanistan,” said Karzai’s spokesman, Aimal Faizi.
“If such operations continue, there will be no agreement.”
