Afghan President Hamid Karzai delivered a nationally televised speech today accusing US occupation forces of “collusion” with the Taliban aimed at convincing his government that a large presence of international forces was still needed.
Karzai cited a pair of suicide bombings on Saturday, targeting a Khost checkpoint and the Defense Ministry, claiming they were aimed specifically at “frightening us into thinking that if the foreigners are not in Afghanistan, we would be facing these sorts of incidents.”
Gen. Joseph Dunford insisted Karzai’s claims were “categorically false,” and insisted that it was “understandable” that tensions were rising with the Afghan government because of the balance between NATO’s need to “complete its mission” and Afghans’ hope to exercise more sovereignty.
The Karzai government has also announced a full ban on all NATO troops entering university grounds nationwide, and accused the CIA of playing a role in the recent kidnapping of one student at Kandahar University, and of roles in the capture and abuse of other students.

There is no strategy in us warfare.., wars, any war is the main idea.., here the strategy is to play everyone and screw everyone if possible.., even if is their man Hamid karzai.., or Taliban for that matter or that English or…, you. That is because there is no politics nor democracy or human rights or anything in that regard.., but war business for war mongers.
At least the guy has some balls speaking his mind in front of the great satan. History has shown that no foreing country as won any war in afghanistan, is the US still dreaming?
I absolutely beleive that the US is behind some of the bombings in Afghanistan as well as in other places the same way Israel does. Regarding America's support of the Taliban, aren't they supporting radical Muslims in Syria? That's why eventually they end up out in the cold all peed and pooed.
looks like Karzai thinks he has a political future.
The alliance between US / UK / Israel and the "Islamic terrorists" is the great untold story of the last 20 years. It seems like every time you read about a terror attack, the terrorists turn out to have some NATO or Israel connection.
You mean the government has been lying to us? We haven't been at war with the Taliban since 2009? I'm shocked!
Why is it that i tend to believe Karzai and not US officials?
Why the hell would be be wasting hundreds of American lives and billions of taxpayer dollars just to continue a pointless war. What could we possibly gain from that. on the other hand, President karzai has never been known as a man of keen intelligence of even sterling character. He's a typical Middle Eastern hustler. What can you expect?
