Afghan Presindent, Karzai, has said he will veto some of the intrusive and heavy-handed operation in Afghanistan that are resulting in complaints from Afghan citizens. He is also asking for the return of hundreds of Afghans that were taken to Guantanamo.

President Hamid Karzai insisted the Kabul government will veto US military operations after a week of hugely destructive anti-American rioting left Afghan cities and towns in flames and hospitals overflowing with casualties.

The Afghan leader, installed with Washington's support in 2001 and often derided as an American puppet, seemed to be bowing to a growing mood of popular anger with American military tactics and uneasiness over how long bases will remain on Afghan soil. He promised to correct "mistakes" made by US forces, especially intrusive searches of village homes by American troops in areas where the Taliban insurgency continues.


This article about US tactics in Afghanistan comes on the heels of another article about the UK warning the US military about their heavy handed tacticts in Iraq, which may be extending the insurgency.
