Karzai Demands that U.S. Airstrikes End
Once again Karzai is demanding that U.S. airstrikes end and that military operations cease. Karzai keeps pounding away at the United States (hard to figure this guy out). His latest outburst is centered around a SOF operation that the U.S. says was Afghan led that led to the death or one or two civilians. A combined force of 70 Afghan commandos and nine U.S. advisers conducted the operation. One Afghan Commando and a U.S. Special Forces operator died in the attack. The U.S. called in an airstrike against a compound from which they were taking fire and could not withdraw. According to the U.S. two civilians in the compound were killed.
