Karzai expresses anger over 12-year Afghan war fought 'for U.S. security, Western interests'
Outgoing Afghan President Hamid Karzai has expressed his anger at the 12-year American war in Afghanistan.
Expressing 'extreme anger' towards the U.S. government, Karzai said in an interview with the Washington Post that the war in Afghanistan was not fought with his country's interests in mind.
In the unusually emotional interview, Karzai explained why he has been such a harsh critic of the 12-year-old U.S. war effort in Afghanistan.
Karzai said he has been deeply troubled by all the casualties he has seen, including those in U.S. military operations.
He feels betrayed by what he calls an 'insufficient U.S. focus' on targeting Taliban sanctuaries in Pakistan.
Karzai said that it was certain the war was 'for the U.S. security and for the Western interest'.
