The Alternative Perspective on Karzai

Sven Ortmann, one of my favorite (and non-American, to boot) foreign policy bloggers, gives the rosier interpretation of Karzai's recent lashings against the US, which has some validity.

My only qualm with Ortmann is that I think the content that Karzai chose to squabble over is significant--in general, his challenges to the US are when it acts to undermine his consolidation of personal power, as far as I can tell, and I think that's more dangerous than what happened in Iraq.
