    Afghanistan leader accuses U.S. special forces of torture

    Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Sunday ordered U.S. special forces troops to cease operations in a strategic eastern province, accusing the Americans and Afghans working for them of torturing and abducting civilians.Karzai's office charged that a university student who was detained during a U.S. operation in Wardak province, southwest of Kabul, was later found with his head and fingers cut off. In another case, U.S. forces are accused of detaining nine villagers, who are still missing.
    Karzai gave no additional details and didn't specify the identities of the Afghans working alongside the U.S. forces. The Wardak provincial chief of police told The Times that he had recently assigned officers to investigate the claims but had seen nothing that supported them. "I don't have any evidence in hand in regard to this issue," said the chief, Sardar Mohammad Zazai.
    The lack of specifics added to the confusion surrounding the accusations, which blindsided U.S. officials in Kabul, the Afghan capital. State Department and military officials were not briefed about the decision before Karzai's chief spokesman announced it at a news conference Sunday evening.

    Giving a very broad statement with little or no evidence or more background to the accusations. Maybe more evidence will come out later? Gonna have to sit back and wait.

    We should have had Citizens all around the White House when Obama invited the Pimp in. Just so that Karzi could take that Picture back home with him. Knowing most Americans think he is a joke. He is nothing more than a Pimp and soon as we get out of there you will see the Taliban take care of this Coward.

    Technically he needs a good back hand that will put him in place. Publicly to and in Front of Women.

    You'll get no argument from me. Karzai is working hard to ensure that he deserves what he is going to get. Mind you, he wasn't dealt a great hand, but he made it worse.

    All the more reason every single American service-person and contractor needs to be pulled out of that pitiful little country immediately.

    Regardless of what we do, it's a lose-lose scenario that will never change for us.

    Get them out, and bring them all home. Same for Iraq. Bring them all home now.
