A plausible answer...someone is trying to sabatoge America's effort in Afghanistan...they don't want a definitive and accepted outcome to the election...so they ordered some of their operatives to accidently lose some ballots.
The point of the enemy, who is obviously operating to some extent, within our own forces, is to defeat our efforts or to make the adventure as expensive as possible. If democracy is part of our product, they do something like take a crap all over the democratic process...by losing people's votes.
Think about Florida's votes or Ohio's Votes...the votes wouldn't change the ultimate outcome but people don't like the idea of their voice being silenced. But its cool with you its not that many votes. Sure, these people, in Afghanistan, risked being murdered by the extremeists to go to polling stations. No big deal; quit armchair quaterbacking.
You should be the first person fired, you're ^%*^% and your thinking process gets people killed and it puts at risk 8 years of work. Every vote has to be counted and not lost and it is a big deal. People like you in the leadership is probably why it's taking so long. You're more concerned with the reputation of your troops than the job itself.
I guess it doesn't matter because Karzai and his Hat will be in a run-off in October. Maybe they can get that loser and whoever's supporting him out of power then.
