Kabul Korrespondence

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

Everyone is hailing it a Victory!

Tuesday, November 03, 2009

The Taliban say the canceled runoff election in Afghanistan proves that their efforts to derail the vote with threats and attacks were successful.

The Islamist militant group issued a statement that the first round was marred by fraud and Karzai won a runoff vote by default after his only challenger dropped out saying that the election could not be free or fair.

According to a statement posted on the Taliban Web site, "Our brave mujahidin were able to disrupt the entire process."

The Taliban said their recent attack on a guest house filled with U.N. election workers showed that "even they are not safe in Kabul."
