A few months ago when President Ahmadinejad of Iran shocked the world by manipulating voting to ensure he won the presidency, President Obama and other world leaders expressed their concerns. The UN backed commission investigating fraud in the recent Afghan presidential vote has announced it was necessary to exclude large numbers of votes for the inner, President Karzai since they were obtained through fraudulent means. There is abundant evidence Karzai in some districts secured 100% of the vote and even up to 110%. Either he is one heck of a popular guy or there is an inability to properly count votes.
Monitoring groups expressed “concerns” about the voting process. The real issue is how will President Obama and European leaders handle a situation in which “their guy” is a blatant crook who has stolen the election. lf Ahmadinejad is to be condemned, then what is done about Karzai?
Methinks something is rotten in the state of Afghanistan!
