Karzai Orders U.S. Special Ops Out

Just hours after three suicide bombs rocked Afghanistan on Sunday, a spokesman for President Hamid Karzai announced that the Afghan leader is giving American special forces in Wardak two weeks to exit the province. The decision, announced during a meeting of the National Security Council, stems from allegations that forces there were teaming with Afghans to torture and abuse other Afghan prisoners. The news casts a new negative light on the war in Afghanistan just two weeks after President Obama awarded the prestigious Medal of Honor to a former Army staff sergeant for his work there.
