    Afghan president’s comments rile US lawmakers

    DONNA CASSATA

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is certain to be questioned about Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai’s recent statement that his country would back Pakistan if it went to war with the United States when she testifies before a House committee Thursday.

    Clinton’s appearance before the House Foreign Affairs Committee is coming just days after her trip to Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    Lawmakers are expected to press her on a range of issues, including the violence in Syria, the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq and the push for statehood by the Palestinians at the United Nations.

    Several lawmakers were furious with Karzai’s comments, suggesting the Obama administration should rethink its commitment of dollars and American lives as well as the timetable for withdrawing U.S. forces.

  2. Khan condemns US drone campaign

    PAKISTAN: Cricket legend and opposition politician Imran Khan railed against the government and its alliance with the US before more than 100,000 flag-waving supporters on Sunday, establishing himself as a force in Pakistani politics.

    “Our leaders owned this war on terror for the sake of dollars,” Mr Khan told the crowd assembled around the Minar-e-Pakistan. “Let me curse you. You sold out the blood of innocent people.”

    Mr Khan’s rising popularity is rattling officials in Washington because he is a vocal critic of the illegal US drone assassination campaign.
