Gen. David Petraeus, the new commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, called Saturday for unity in the civilian and military effort to turn back the Taliban, saying, "In this important endeavor, cooperation is not optional."
U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. was in the Afghan capital to talk with officials about improving the justice system and fighting corruption Wednesday, a day after Afghanistan's top prosecutor defended himself against allegations that he's being pressured not to pursue cases against powerful figures.
Afghanistan's top prosecutor Tuesday accused U.S. Ambassador Karl Eikenberry of threatening to have him removed from his job if he did not take action against an Afghan banker purportedly involved in fraud.
In the document, Eikenberry said Afghan President Hamid Karzai was not a reliable partner for the counterinsurgency strategy McChrystal was hired to execute.
