Karsai, double agent, can’t be trusted: A chameleon can only change its color, but can never change its skin

President Karzai has acknowleged receiving a secret bag of cash from Iran. This news confirms what many believe: that the Afghan president is a double agent who plays both for the West and Iran.

For sure, Afghans are closer to the Iranians than the West. Karzai is a controversial figure, by his positions and also by the way he behaves. For Mr. Karzai, the enemies of his friends are his friends.

I do not know how much it will take to get the US government and its allies to see that Mr. Karzai should not be trusted with stabilizing Afghanistan. As the Duala of Cameroon say, “A chameleon can only change its color, but can never change its skin.”
