American troops presented a weapon to an Afghan police recruit, who promptly used it to kill two of them.
Afghans almost seem more upset over Quran burnings than civilian murders. Maybe that’s because they’re more accustomed to the latter. At any rate, Karzai is at the end of his rope. It’s not hard to see why.

Hope pastor Jones can’t draw Muhammad cartoons.
