Probably the best-dressed national leader in the world.
And the former president of Afghanistan.
He was definitely not thrilled with the United States dropping the biggest bomb in the American arsenal on a supposed ISIS hideout this week.
The death toll for the supposes "militants" is approaching 100.
According to the New York Times:
Mr. Karzai said the people of eastern Afghanistan had expressed concern about Islamic State members coming from across the border with Pakistan when the threat emerged more than two years ago, but little action was taken before it became a problem.
“They allowed Daesh to come and come, and empty villages of their residents and entrench themselves,” Mr. Karzai said, using the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State. “Why did they wait for two years? Why didn’t they stop them then? All the entry points were known.”
He added: “The conclusion is that Daesh was a U.S. contractor, like DynCorp, like other U.S. companies, that they used to empty an area of its population and create a cause, create an environment, a psychological environment in which the U.S. can then test its weapon.”
Karzai, once seen by many as a puppet for George W. Bush after 9/11, has grown increasingly critical of the United States over the years.
For good reason.
