Update to the blog post from yesterday.  See here.  After shoving his foot firmly in his mouth the Mayor of Kabul has tried to “clarify” his comments by blaming every politicians favorite target – the media.  See link.  While Karzai likes to blame foreigners his own Parliament almost unanimously gave him an open handed slap by rejecting his attempt to pack the Electoral Complaints Commission with his cronies.  See link.  Its not clear whether this restores the autonomy of the commission, but its a small step for the rule of law in the face of a venal leader’s diktat.

I will let the video below speak for itself.  Brings out the absurdity of the media’s hand wringing tendency.  Would like to see more of this Obama around.
