Karzai Demands ‘Accelerated’ Withdrawal After LA Times Photos

•, by John Glaser
 In response to newly published photos of U.S. troops happily manipulating the remains of dead Afghans, President Hamid Karzai said Thursday that an accelerated withdrawal of Western troops must take place in order to avoid such “inhumane and provocative” acts.
In a statement issued by presidential palace less than 24 hours after the Los Angeles Times released the images, Karzai said demanded an ”accelerated and full transition of security responsibilities to Afghan forces, so Afghanistan can take over its own destiny, and thus no such things can be repeated by the foreign forces in Afghanistan.”
