The article misses the point that the bad guys were probably among the kids when they launched the rockets. I won't second guess the CCA guys and why they didn't (or couldn't) PID the fact they were kids.

But Karzai....what a tool. I "get" that he has to play a role in front of his people, but in doing so he undermines ISAF and the whole reason that d-bag is the Mayor of Kabul.

How sad is it when you start wondering if a guy like Dostum would be a better choice?

Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) -- Apologies are not sufficient when it comes to civilian casualties, Afghan President Hamid Karzai told the NATO commander Sunday, days after a NATO airstrike killed nine Afghan boys.
Karzai told Gen. David Petraeus, the commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, that incidents of civilian casualties during coalition military operations are the main reason for tensions in the U.S.-Afghan relationship and he demanded there be no more, according to a statement from Karzai's office.

Patraeus should tell Karzi that apologies are not enough the next time an ANA kills a GI.

No kidding. There's never any outrage about that. CNN or Fox run the story for maybe half a day and then it goes away. This douchebag has his face in the camera every few weeks uttering his crap. I guess he forgot that 10 years ago he was a nobody, marked for death by the TB, with little future nor any plans for the future.

He also wants us to turn a blind eye to his brother and all that heroin :rolleyes:. Karzai is in power and his country is liberated because of us. That corrupt SOB needs to STFU and understand that innocents die in war.

I have to give State and Hillary credit, they've tried pressing them over his brother, but to no avail.
