Presidential spokesman Aimal Faizi says Sunday´s decision was taken during a meeting of the National Security Council because of the alleged actions of Afghans who are linked to the U.S. special forces. He said the government wants the individuals, whom he did not identify, to be handed over to the government. Wardak is a restive province next to Kabul and has been the focus of counterinsurgency efforts.

You can bet that when the last American leaves, Karzai will be right behind him. I see a “pathway to U.S. citizenship” gig in Karzai’s future.

I have heard horror stories about the torture used against Americans in Afghanistan but you won’t hear it in the MSM.

If it was “Special Forces” doesn’t that mean the US Army?

Wait, let me understand this:

I would guess Switzerland. The mountains will remind him of home, he'll be close to his money, and he can still complain about America.

“Afghans accuse U.S. special forces of being involved in torture OF TALIBAN, “

/fixed it...

Karzai should have been killed years ago.

Our entire operations in Afghanistan and Iraq have been wasted on this BS, limp-wristed “nation-building” garbage.

We should have carpet bombed both nations, outright occupied them, blown up all the mosques, secured their borders with tactical nukes aimed at Iran and Pakistan, and allowed jobs to and fed only those who publicly renounce islam and denounce their local sand nazis.

We could have paid for all this with IRAQ’S oil, staying a generation or three until all the jihadi scum were killed or starved or converted out.

Sound harsh?

Notice something about Japan and Germany?

NOT A PEEP in 68 years...
