The top US commander in occupied Afghanistan, Gen. Dunford, says that he is working on an effort to resolve Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s recent complaints about US troops, and doing so with a “sense of urgency.”
Exactly how the US hopes to resolve these complaints short of not kidnapping and torturing university students is unclear, and indeed the US seems madder about the complaints than the abuse.
Gen. Dunford initially responded to Karzai’s complaints by putting the military “on alert,” and Sen. Carl Levin (D – MI) today blasted Karzai, saying his comments were making victory “more problematic” and warning it might discourage America from continuing the occupation if Karzai kept saying such things.
