Andy and Tman send a link to an article from Reuters which reports that Afghan President Karzai has ordered that US special forces leave Wardak Province in Afghanistan because some villagers complained about operations there;
The decision was reached at a Sunday meeting of the Afghan National Security Council, chaired by Karzai, Faizi said.
“The Ministry of Defense was assigned to make sure all U.S. special forces are out of the province within two weeks,” he said.
“After a thorough discussion, it became clear that armed individuals named as U.S. special forces stationed in Wardak province were engaging in harassing, annoying, torturing and even murdering innocent people,” Faizi added.
I hardly believe the charges, but screw them, I’d move all US troops right to the airfield and abandon the whole shithole to Karzai without spending another dime on defensive operations there. Karzai puts our troops in harm’s way by limiting air operations and now he wants to end operations in a province near Kabul. He’s bought and paid for his own demise, let him have it. What are we going to do? Send in Kerry to make things right?
