PostSubject: Clinton defends US Afghan policy after Karzai criticism    Sat Aug 20, 2011 10:44 am

Gen David Petraeus, the coalition commander in Afghanistan, was said to be astonished by Mr Karzai's remarks.

He warned that the Afghan leader's latest public criticism of US strategy threatens to undermine progress in the war, and risked making his own position "untenable", Afghan and US officials told the Washington Post.

'Reduce intrusion'
Mrs Clinton said the military operations were in the best interest of the Afghan people and their government.

"We believe that the use of intelligence-driven, precision-targeted operations against high-value insurgents and their networks is a key component of our comprehensive civilian-military operations," said Mrs Clinton.

"There is no question that they are having a significant impact on the insurgent leadership and the networks that they operate."

She insisted the operations were conducted in full partnership with the government of Afghanistan and pointed out Afghan forces were included on each operation.


Mrs Clinton acknowledged that Washington was sensitive to concerns expressed by President Karzai
But Mrs Clinton acknowledged that Washington was sensitive to concerns expressed by President Karzai, who has been increasingly outspoken about the Western mission.

In his Washington Post interview, he had called on the US to reduce the visibility and intensity of its military operations in the country.

"The time has come to reduce the presence of, you know, boots in Afghanistan... to reduce the intrusiveness into the daily Afghan life," he said.
