From Jordan News.net:
US Military dealt with killer of Karzai’s brother
Saturday 16th July, 2011
The Washington Post has revealed that the bodyguard who assassinated the Afghan president’s half-brother had dealt closely with US Special Forces, the CIA and British officials.
Ahmad Wali Karzai was shot dead last Tuesday.
According to the Post, Sardar Mohammad, the man who shot Karzai at his home in Kandahar, was later recruited by the Taliban.
Mohammad was reportedly so close to his victim that they met most days.
Contacts have revealed US security operatives would often ask Sardar to make arrests if they could not do it themselves.
And evidence has also emerged that the Taliban recruited Mohammad by infiltrating Afghan government security.
The high-profile killing means the troubled south of the country has lost a powerful leader.
A “powerful lesader” in hard drugs trade and CIA deals. Though the Jordan News item and the Washington Post article do not mention drugs, Sardar Mohammad may also have had a history of helping Ahmad Wali Karzai in drug deals.

On his way out of Afghanistan, General David Petraeus continues to throw out deceptive spin about the direction of the conflict in that country. The general wants to use cherry-picked numbers and vague characterizations to paint the insurgents as reeling under an assault by his pet counterinsurgency campaign, but big-picture “progress” exists only in his imagination. The truth is that security for Afghans is much, much worse than it was when Petraeus and his protege, General McChrystal, arrived: here.

Afghan Judges Accuse U.S. of War Crimes. David Swanson, WarIsACrime.org: “Well, what would I do? That’s what they wanted to know: what would I advise Obama? I told them that I would announce that the military occupation was ending soon, that there would be no bases left behind and no weapons left behind, that I would immediately prosecute war crimes, that I would fund educational and civic and aid organizations run and controlled by Afghans… As this was being translated, every one of the six judges began applauding and declaring things like ‘You speak from our hearts”: here.
