    Top U.S. officer warns Afghan war will get worse

    Top U.S. officer warns Afghan war will get worse | Reuters

    Quote( More NATO troops will die in Afghanistan as violence mounts over the summer, but Washington's goal of turning the tide against the insurgency by year's end is within reach, the top U.S. military officer said on Sunday.)

    This officer is very like correct in his assessment.

    Does anyone have any comments?

    take a peek at what we are spending American lives, reputation and treasure propping up:
    Karzai said to thwart bribery case against aide - World news - South and Central Asia - Afghanistan -

    A top national security aide to Afghan President Hamid Karzai was arrested last week on bribery charges —then released the same day “at the direction of the palace,” a senior U.S. official tells NBC News.
    ... After the arrest and release of Salehi, Karzai retaliated by ordering an investigation of two U.S.-financed Afghan anti-corruption units, one of which had developed the case against the national security official. Karzai’s office said in a statement that he was concerned that the anti-corruption units – known as the Sensitive Investigation Unit and the Major Crimes Task Force – were violating “human rights principles.”
    ... Months ago, sources tell NBC News, the Sensitive Investigations Unit, working with U.S. investigators, developed what U.S. officials considered “rock solid evidence” against Salehi. The national security aide was caught on secret wiretaps agreeing to accept a bribe from the deputy director of an Afghan financial company. In exchange, Salehi agreed to use his influence to help quash an investigation of an Afghan “hawala” dealer suspected of moving cash for drug traffickers.
    ... The issue of corruption has become so sensitive that the Senate Foreign Relations Committee delayed release of a major report on the problem Wednesday because of fears its publication could endanger the Afghan investigators who are making the cases against Karzai's aides, NBC News has learned.
    Obama is foolish to protract and expand the afghanistan war. we have hinged our hopes for a positive outcome on karzai. will Obama have to initiate a coup against a corrupt karzai as JFK did against a corrupt diem? i bet the same eventual outcome results
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
