Peter Fuller Fired:  Senior U.S. Officer in Afghanistan Relieved of Duty

According to the HuffPo, “[GEN] Allen said the ‘unfortunate comments’ don’t represent the solid U.S. relationship with the Afghan government.  ‘The Afghan people are an honorable people, and comments such as these will not keep us from accomplishing our most critical and shared mission – bringing about a stable, peaceful and prosperous Afghanistan,’ Allen said.”

According to FoxNews.com and many other sites, “Fuller called Karzai’s statements ‘erratic.'”  A Google search of “Karzai” reveals on the first page these two headlines:

  • “Hamid Karzai: Afghanistan would back Pakistan in U.S. War”
  • “Karzai accuses Pakistan of supporting Terrorists.” 

Perhaps not clinically sufficient to call the man crazy, but sufficient enough to characterize him as ‘erratic.’

Note to troops:  Honesty will get you nowhere (except, maybe, sent home–hopefully with some clothes).
