Advisor to Karzai Says BSA Could be Signed
An advisor to Karzai (his national security advisor) is now hinting that the Bilateral Security Agreement could be signed by Karzai prior to him leaving office. Why bother. The April elections are around the corner. The newly elected president will most likely sign the BSA. ISAF should ignore Karzai, continue to parallel plan for either the "zero option" or leaving 10K in Afghanistan post-2014. How hard is that? (I do pity the LTC that has that job). So treat Karzai like the lame duck he is, ignore him, and move on. He shouldn't matter anymore.
