Karzai points finger at NATO after Afghanistan attacks

Intelligence failure

Afghan President Hamid Karzai has pointed the figure at NATO intelligence in the aftermath of a new series of insurgent attacks in Afghanistan.  While he praised his own forces for killing all of the insurgent suicide teams he said that “The terrorists’ infiltration in Kabul and other provinces is an intelligence failure for us and especially for NATO and should be seriously investigated.”

Too early to call it an intelligence failure  

Meanwhile Seddiq Seddiqui, spokesman for the ministry of interior, defended his ministry saying that “It’s too early to comment on intelligence failures. Our answer is that the Taliban were beaten hard, we controlled the damage and if they even dream of doing this again, they will face the same consequences.” Seddiqui also confirmed that 35 insurgents were killed while one was captured. Meanwhile 8 Afghan forces members and 3 civilians were also killed in the attacks. 25 civilians and 40 Afghan security force members were also injured

NATO: don’t start a blame game

Meanwhile NATO replied to Karzai’s allegations by saying that a blame game should not be started. Anders Fogh Rasmussen, Nato secretary general, said that “I think we are in this together. We should help each other.”
