Sen. Graham Says He is "Capable of Pulling the Plug on Afghanistan"

Not happy with recent comments from Afghanistan's president

|

The Republican Senate caucus is fed up with Afghan President Hamid Karzai and openly looking forward to his departure, following Karzai's recent accusation that the United States is colluding with the Taliban.

Karzai marred Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel's first official visit to Afghanistan last weekend by publicly accusing the United States of conspiring with the Taliban to destabilize his country in order to create conditions that would require the extended presence of U.S. troops. The joint press conference between Karzai and Hagel was cancelled after Karzai's outburst.
