Or so says an official in Afghanistan. Aww… don’t worry- just ask for more money and that will make it all better. That’s all you want from the United States anyway. So just whine a bit and our feckless government will feel badly and toss you some more taxpayer cash (because they’d rather you have it than America’s own unemployed).
Afghanistan’s finance minister warned Saturday that the release of leaked U.S. diplomatic cables will hurt U.S.-Afghan relations, and he denied a report that he called President Hamid Karzai and “extremely weak man.” Afghan Finance Minister Omar Zakhilwal said it will no longer be “business as usual” between key Afghan ministers and U.S. Ambassador Karl Eikenberry.
Yes, the ‘Finance Minister’. Not the Diplomatic Chief. The Finance Minister- or as he should really be called, the guy with one hand stuck out to the US and the other stuck into the pocket of the Taliban.
You watch, American ‘aid’ will increase to Afghanistan. WikiLeaks is a windfall for such nations.
