    CIA Millions in Cash for Karzai

    Obama, get your house in order.

    KABUL, Afghanistan — For more than a decade, wads of American dollars packed into suitcases, backpacks and, on occasion, plastic shopping bags have been dropped off every month or so at the offices of Afghanistan’s president — courtesy of the Central Intelligence Agency.
    .....
    Moreover, there is little evidence that the payments bought the influence the C.I.A. sought. Instead, some American officials said, the cash has fueled corruption and empowered warlords, undermining Washington’s exit strategy from Afghanistan.

    Once again the US agencies work at cross-purposes.

    Obama needs to get a handle on what his agencies are doing.

    We and our allies are pouring a fortune in money and blood into a country that will never change, all to what purpose?

    We could use those millions here.

    If I think US policy is misguided I will say so. Please give me credit for that.

    Your post does not address the substance; it only baits.

    The US keeps thinking that it can get Afghanistan right....failing to understand that this corrupt, tribal, iron age culture has managed to crush the dreams of civilizing influences for about 3500 years without remorse. Of course the CIA is shovelling cash at Karzai, because they know if they don't, Afghanistan would just as easily switch over to the side that pays the most.

    Afghanistan has been the graveyard for the ambitions of everyone from Alexander the Great, through Muslim potentates, the British, the Soviets and now the US and the other western countries. It has a singular role in history. The sooner that the US and the rest of the west leave this region and stop trying to pretend it can ever be anything other than a failed state like Pakistan, the sooner that we can get on with just bombing it to glass and focus on all the other countries who hate liberal western civilization.

    Thx Palbert - had seen this and thought about sharing

    This is not a Dem-Repub thing

    This is about buying loyalty or the outcome u want

    If it worked I'd say shitty means good ends

    But it's not working

    And it's lazy

    There is a new book on the subject of both Afghanistan and Pakistan--(which I wish I could remember the title)-and the US is screwed either way dealing with these 2 countries because we are in bed with our enemies---big time---and now we have to be very cautious as to how we deal with them for soooo many complicated reasons and corruption is what these 2 countries are all about. Who got us into bed big time with them---and further complicated things---Mr Fuck up himself---GWB.

    Th US has been paying Afghan warlords for "peace" almost since the war began. Bush's and Obama's administrations are complicit.

    Make no mistake - when it became clear that soldiers on the ground couldn't end the Afghanistan war, the US quietly chose a more effective route. They started buying peace.

    The Administration's agencies are doing what they are supposed to do based on what the President wants.
