Afghanistan against America

The International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan is disputing a claim by Afghan President Hamid Karzai that a NATO rocket attack in southern Helmand province last Friday killed 52 civilians.

In a statement issued Monday, ISAF spokesman Rear Admiral Greg Smith said a joint investigation by NATO and the Afghan government has thus far revealed "no evidence of civilians injured or killed."

Mr. Karzai said Monday that an investigation by the Afghan intelligence service found that a NATO rocket hit a home in the Sangin district of Helmand province.

The U.S., NATO and ISAF are propping up Karzai and his Afghan regime, militarily and by trying to win over the Afghan public.

Karzai responds with baseless accusations of random indiscriminate killing of civilians, making our job that much harder.

Let's withdraw, and let Karzai face his enemies without us. Karzai and his government wouldn't last more than a few days.
