Hamid Friggin' Karzai.
Heart as black as Newgate's knocker.
But we western fools have propped him up as the titular head of Afghanistan. Cause he looked good. Heck, he was on Esquire's 2007 list of 10 best dressed men in the world.
Unto him we will entrust what the men and women of our militaries and information services have worked for, been wounded for, died for.
Hamid can't control his own brother, much less Afghanistan.
Hamid has already figured out life without NATO.
His ass will be grass when he can't hide behind our ACUs anymore.
So, he's made clear his allegiance to Pakistan over the United States.
He's making entreaties to those nice folks over at the Taliban offices.
Such as this sweet example of justice.
A 19 year old Afghan woman was recently raped. And impregnated by her rapist. For her troubles, she was thrown in prison for adultery. See, under the Talib way of thinking, it's her fault.
Oh, but wait. Old Hamid has stepped in to rectify this.
All this woman needs to do is agree to marry the man that raped her, and she will be pardoned.
And to this bastard, we are going to hand over security gains we've made against the Taliban and al Qaeda in that lawless land and entrust him with maintaining.
We will deserve it when the next 9/11 happens.
