    thx. I was just going to post this.

    well, its starts. the gov. forces all the way to the number 2 man in the country is rife with double agents and those hostile to the state and it will only breed more, what does it say when you cannot even keep the brother of the pres. alive?

    afghan. will go straight down hill, 6 months ( if it takes that long) after we are gone. I give it oh, another year before we see significant uptick in trng. camps etc. along the lines AQ had running post 911 and even there after in Waziristan.

    Karzais brother was shady though, from what I heard alot of people wanted him dead, the CIA, Taliban, even Karzai himself had problems with him. I think there is alot more that happened than we know, if this guy really wanted to be safe he could have stayed in the Presidential Palace with Karzai, that place is safe it is full of US Private Security Contractors who are Karzais bodyguards and US Military Personnel.

    Oh, no. Karzai wouldn't kill his own brother, would he?

    Over there to kill one's brother is a way to send a terrifying message to the country's leader.

    I agree with Trajan. It's the Taliban rattling their sabres.

    It probably is the Taliban but even if it was, if Karzai really wanted his brother safe this would not have happened, from what I gather this clown was living in Kandahar which is Taliban country.

    well, this certainly is interesting;

    Bodyguard who killed Karzai's brother was trusted CIA contact

    The bodyguard who assassinated President Hamid Karzai's brother had been working closely with US Special Forces and the CIA before he was recruited by the Taliban, raising fears over the Islamist movement's increasingly sophisticated intelligence apparatus which has managed to threaten the inner circles of power in Afghanistan.

    Sardar Mohammad, who shot Ahmed Wali Karzai at his home in Kandahar City on Tuesday, also held regular meetings with British officials, and had two brothers-in-law serving in a CIA-run paramilitary unit, the Kandahar Strike Force, the Washington Post reported yesterday.

    as I said in posts 2 and 4, this will go downhill and more quickly than many of us may imagine....
