Hosted by

Last year, Afghanistan's Electoral Complaints Commission discovered so much fraud in the presidential election that it required a run-off. That never happened, but Hamid Karzai promised to clean his house of corruption. But today, he seized control of the commission itself and removed three foreign experts who'd been appointed by the UN.  What will this mean for continued western support of the Karzai government?
