Karzai, in Washington visit, to detail complaints

Afghan security, corruption likely discussion topics

KABUL — When Afghan President Hamid Karzai visits Washington this week, he will bring with him a list of complaints he has enumerated for months in public speeches — accusations that the United States has fomented corruption in Afghanistan and continues to violate the country’s sovereignty.

Karzai’s top advisers say he has been forced to go public with that critique because meetings with US officials here have yielded no progress on the issues he values most. Now he’ll share the list of grievances with an American president in the midst of disentangling the US military from its longest war.
