James Clapper: I Don't Believe Karzai Will Sign US-Afghanistan Security Deal

No shit


The U.S. director of national intelligence said on Tuesday he does not believe Afghan President Hamid Karzai will sign a bilateral security agreement with the United States.

The Obama administration has been pressing Karzai to sign a pact that would authorize U.S. troops to remain in Afghanistan after 2014. Karzai has refused to sign so far, although Washington insists a deal must be approved before it will agree to leave a contingent of troops in Afghanistan.
