President Karzai answers President Obama

Live on national television yesterday in Afghanistan, Afghani President Karzai responded to President Obama's hand-delivered note of apology for U.S. soldiers burning some Korans that had been used by prisoners to pass information.  "We call on the US government to bring the perpetrators of the act to justice and put them on trial and punish them."

President Obama's letter to President Karzai has not been released, but in Karzai's televised response, he said, ""The US government says that such an act was carried out because of ignorance and lack of knowledge.  This incident happened as a result of the ignorance of the US military officer about our vision about Islam and not recognizing the Koran. It was not deliberate."

Sounds like the Commander in Chief really has the backs of our enlisted men, doesn't it.
