Afghans See Possibility that American Support May Vanish

Wall Street Journal: “Until recently, Afghans and U.S. officials alike assumed that, despite Mr. Karzai’s posturing, an agreement would eventually be reached. But now, they are beginning to confront the real possibility that American support may completely vanish in the coming months—potentially precipitating the collapse of a state that has few other sources of sustenance.”

“Few politicians in Kabul voiced support for the president’s stance. Even one of his brothers, Mahmood Karzai, has sounded an alarm… The loudest praise for Mr. Karzai came from the Taliban insurgents.”
