Kabul Korrespondence

Fresh, factual, and funky view of Afghanistan and the surrounding Central Asian region

Kazai a Biker?

Tuesday, May 20, 2008

Afghan President Hamid Karzai had left Pakistan in 2001 on the directives of the ISI that set deadline of September 30 for him, plainly telling him that his visa would not be renewed.

Two years after the assassination of his father in Quetta allegedly by Taliban in which Karzai also implicated the ISI, he went back to Afghanistan riding a motorbike, with an old satellite phone a new book has revealed.

This book also unfolds Karzai's chequered history of relations with Taliban whom he gave fifty thousand dollars plus a cache of weapons by the time they captured Kandahar and that Taliban later wanted to appoint him as their ambassador in the United Nations.

No way!
