Just staggering. The Afghanistan mess just continues.

Ding, Ding, Ding!!! I am now working for the CIA!!! Ain't that grand!!!

Wow, the President of Afghanistan's brother working the refs on both sides!!! CIA and others. Only in America can we just think this is A-OK!!!

The Obama White House are in a tangled weave and need to find its way OUT. Oh, and the President't brother is a bangin' big time drug dealer to boot!!

Ahmed Wali Karzai, the brother of the Afghan president and a suspected player in the country’s booming illegal opium trade, gets regular payments from the Central Intelligence Agency, and has for much of the past eight years, according to current and former American officials.

The agency pays Mr. Karzai for a variety of services, including helping to recruit an Afghan paramilitary force that operates at the C.I.A.’s direction in and around the southern city of Kandahar, Mr. Karzai’s home.

The financial ties and close working relationship between the intelligence agency and Mr. Karzai raise significant questions about America’s war strategy, which is currently under review at the White House.

The ties to Mr. Karzai have created deep divisions within the Obama administration. The critics say the ties complicate America’s increasingly tense relationship with President Hamid Karzai, who has struggled to build sustained popularity among Afghans and has long been portrayed by the Taliban as an American puppet. The C.I.A.’s practices also suggest that the United States is not doing everything in its power to stamp out the lucrative Afghan drug trade, a major source of revenue for the Taliban. read more here....

Yes, big time drug dealers are who we must deal with in Afghanistan. That desolated place, that is all they got, poppy seeds and the world loves it!!!

Yes, a tangled weave left by the Bush Administration that must be cleaned up by the Obama Administration. I say give Obama all the time he needs to make the right decision, because we don't want our Nobel Peace Prize Laureate to become a mockery, right?
