Karzai 2Recent anti-western rhetoric from Afghan President Hamid Karzai is stressing American officials and the Obama administration is concerned that it may hamper efforts to wind down U.S. military operations in Afghanistan.  International Relations Professor William Keylor, author of “A World of Nations: The International Order Since 1945,” says Karzai is playing with fire.

“With Al-Qaeda virtually gone from Afghanistan, the question ‘what are we fighting for?’ may surface in American public discourse for the first time since the Taliban regime was overthrown.”
