Another typical case where there is no condemnation from Karzai. Condemnation is only used when civialians killed by accident by the U.S. When civilians are deliberately targeted by the Taliban or Al-Qaeda, they are exempt from condemnation.

This is what we have been trying to protect for the past 10+ years??? [yes, we have been there longer - but the first few years were 'open warfare' -- since then it's been a 'holding action', right?? um, no?]

I think Karzai has long ago sided with the Taliban, knowing that he had to do that to survive; but also, as long as there was a struggle, USA would keep paying Karzai MILLIONS to “help us out”.

WE just need to leave — oh – find where he keeps the money – take it back.

These American journalists used to be escorted by US marines. Now they face an Afghan “security vaccum” when troops left and they go in opposite. Talibans launch assault on target, the police worse off by doing it at random. Sad development from US meddling.

You have taken extrapolation to new heights. Some islamic radical nut job kills a foreigner and you give culpability to American policy. Forgive me Sir, but you take the cake.
