CIA creates monstrous corruption in US-Afghan relations

The New York Times wrote that the Central Intelligence Agency sends millions of dollars to the administration of the current President of Afghanistan Hamid Karzai. The cash, the newspaper said, is secretly sent packed in luggage. The CIA thus obtains influence on the Afghan leader and his inner circle. The latter, in turn, use the money to conduct negotiations with Afghan warlords.

Iraqi authorities also transfer large amounts of money to Afghanistan.

The New York Times accused the U.S. government of creating monstrous corruption that thrives today in Afghanistan and of undermining Washington's strategy to withdraw troops from Afghanistan.

Earlier, U.S. Assistant Secretary for South and Central Asian Affairs, Robert Blake, said at a press conference in Astana that the United States intends to keep a number of bases in Afghanistan and Central Asia after 2014.

 

Representatives of the North Korean administration issued a statement saying that the United States and its allies have lost the "political and military confrontation" to the DPRK
