Sen. McCaskill: Karzai is 'Divorced From Reality'

Lawmakers are increasingly frustrated with the Afghan president

|

Senators are fed up with Afghan President Hamid Karzai and say the Obama administration should wait until a new Afghan leader is elected to negotiate a deal for keeping U.S. troops in the country.

The lawmakers are outraged at Karzai for voicing suspicions that U.S. troops are behind insurgent attacks in Afghanistan, including the Jan. 17 attack on a Kabul restaurant that killed 21 civilians — including three Americans.
