Expect to keep hearing the Hamid Karzai spin train every day from now until August 20th. It will get louder and louder as he makes these statements about talks with the Taliban and how he wants rules put on Coalition forces. Under the past administration he would be ignored as he always has, but under this Administration there is no telling what will happen.
He has a history of shooting off his mouth for his own people and of course the media jumps all over it. He is like a guy in a fight that is held back by his friends and as long as his friends are holding him back he talks big smack. He knows that he has no pull and that he can make whatever â€œdemandsâ€ he wants but they will fall on deaf ears, except for his own people. The Afghan people have very limited access to outside media outlets so they believe what they hear in country.
Karzai needs to stay quiet, quit talking smack and as I have said in the past, quit being a tool.
