Hamid Karzai Is Not a Good Partner


The president of Afghanistan has now accused the United States and the Taliban of being partners against his regime. Karzai is now as crazy as a Tea Party Congressman, and that says a lot.

If this is not evidence of his insanity, what is? What will it take for the Obama Administration to pull the plug on the Afghan adventure and bring the troops home?

I hope that this accelerates the drawdown and I hope this leads to some sort of realization on the part of Chuck Hagel. As the Secretary of Defense, he has to look to the interests of our military. He has to be an advocate for what is best for the men and women in uniform. Each and every day they spend propping up the corrupt, venal, and incompetent Karzai is a day wasted.
